I've been really busy for the past week doing a lot of work at the sewing machine. I've finished the quilting of my new piece, it was quite tedious work and I am in need of a neck and shoulder massage.
I know the reason my muscles react when I do this kind of work is tension. I try to relax but it just doesn't happen. In spite of the sore neck and headaches I'm really excited about this piece. Can't wait share the whole picture.
I also finished quilting Sanctuary and when I get a decent photo of it will post it in it's finished state. I've also been working on The Stripper. I have a really funny story about this piece, well not to me, but to my son. When I get it finished and photographed I will post that story as well.
My friend Ann and I are going to The Pickens County Museum of Art and History on Thursday to see a one-man show titled Selvage: New Works by Jim Arendt. I saw two of his pieces in the juried show last year and they really spoke to me. I hope to get permission to post photos and share the exhibit on my blog.
