Forever Changing

Well I messed around with the Creamery again
today. It keeps going through progression.
I am liking it better and hope to finalize it before
Tuesday. I heed to concentrate on packing for
the AQS Show in Grand Rapids.
I am taking a class on Thursday.
Looking forward to it Painting and quilting.

The Creamry

 My newest project for the FibR show in September
called the Creamery. A building in Minnesota in
a small town East Ottertail. The show is called
Archtexture.  So buildings and texture. I like
the building but am having trouble with the back
ground. I will work it out.  Taking photos helps
spot the trouble spots. Today we are going to
put some stewed tomatoes up for the winter
Skinless and seedless especially for me.
I am about ready to live on Glucernas  and
other liquid drinks at least I know no seeds.

My newest project

I need to finish this one by Tuesday.
Next week. I started with a photo I took in
Minnesota standing on top of a culvert.
( Not the best place for a person with no balance)
I coated a bed sheet scrap with 2 coats of
Ink aid and printed the photo on my new printer.
Using batiks and hand dyed fabric I created
a border around it. Now to move on to quilting
and embellishment.
I spent the day doing returns, shopping and
going to the camera shop. Thank goodness
my camera is OK just the lens is damaged.
I will learn to keep it zipped in its bag.
Ya think!
I also turned in my entry for the Salon Show.
I got in last year after a 3 year attempt.
A day in the city exhausts me.
I am such a country girl.
Give me the wide open spaces, trees and fields.
But once in awhile a girl needs to go out for thread.

Melon time again.

Looks good and taste good too.
My husband's garden is a marvel.
He grows the best produce.
I have too busy to even take photos
of what I am doing.
Saturday I went to the Chesterton Art Center's
annual art show. It was awesome. Than
Sunday I went to Darien , Illinois to the
Midwest Collage Society to do a demo
 on Bleach dyeing fabric and clothing.
Today I blocked another art quilt and
plan to do another Tuesday and Wednesday..
While I am ready to call it a night.
See you later.
