We continue to get snow here in New York. The wind is not blowing however as the snow laden windmill shows. Its just the light fluffy wet lake effect stuff. The snow is piling up however. It was much nicer earlier this week and I went to the QuEGs and Diva meetings. At QuEGs there were only three of us so we meant at Liz’s home and did a bit of Gelly Plate printing. Liz says she will use some of hers to make Valentines. As a part of the season Judy Sent me a cheerful water color Valentine to celebrate too.
Alice is getting ready for her show at the Women’s Museum and this is her most recent work.
Progress Report: Joy II This work is 34.5” w X 39.5” t. I am so fortunate to have a group of folks to bounce ideas off of. I took this work to the QuEG’s meeting and they gave me some valuable suggestions. I went home and applied them and then took the work to the Diva meeting that eve. The gals in that group pounced it completed. This close up shows where I did some of the altering. Before I reworked this area the orange in the letters and the orange in the background where too close to the same color. I used a colored pencil to darken the background. The high contrast is what it needed.
Indian Pipe This felted project is at the build stage. I am struggling along with the integration of the plants into the setting. I think I have just about completed the bracken on the forest floor. Now to work on the pipes themselves.
Frozen This work is also proving to be a bit of a challenge at the moment. The organza ice is on now and I need to decide where to let the stones poke through so I can build the flow patterns around them. I am just unsure about how to start.
Daily Practice-Orange Essence I have decide this daily practice work is done. I do not know how I want to finish the series so I am setting this work aside for now . I will begin the next one this week.
Scarp Happy When I do not know what I want to do next I keep myself in the working mood by doing a project that requires little or no thinking on my part. I am doing that with this project as I have done many of these scrap happys. I pulled out the box of left over blocks from previous Scrap Happys and started a new project. I know I can always find a home for these quilts.
Collage This is collage #5. I am please I have kept up this series and feel I have a routine now. I know this summy work is in response to the snow and cold too. The environment really does affect my work.
Susan challenged me to do a collage where I used the sewing machine and this project is the result.
Happy Valentines day and Keep Creating
