This has been a really busy summer for me. The yurt has taken up a large amount of time, the store has been busy and I had color class homework to complete. So in between the yurt efforts, I have been slowly completing the tasks on my list.
I was running quite low on cat toys at the store. So I made several batches. I put them all into the panty hose and then throw them into the washing machine. The other batches were different colors so now I have enough to last the next couple of months.
And this is what I’m working on now. I am making a color study from the photograph with various pieces of painted paper. The colors are pulled from the photo and then different amounts of each color are used in the layers of color. I got in a hurry and spilled water all over the photo. I’ll have to print another one.
It seems like I spent a vast amount of time deciding how much of each color to show. Now I have to cut the pieces and tape them down to a background page. I’ll probably change my mind again as I’m taping them down.
I have also been preparing for my stitch class’s exhibit which will be in September. I had to get a few more pieces ready for hanging. I don’t have any photos but generally it was matting pieces and lacing pieces in preparation for framing. Have you been busy this summer? Do let us know what you’ve been up to. We’d love to see photos and hear all about it on the forum.
