Connor and the Watering Can
The last two days have been devoted to painting the hat. Yes two days. This is a slow process but I am loving it. As I look at that this photo I can see that I need to do some more work on the hat bill. It's amazing to me how I can see things wrong in a photo that I can't see when I'm looking at the piece in my studio.
I have always been a big advocate of taking photos of my work as it progresses. Looking at this photo just reinforces that view.
Can you see the problem that I see?
All that is left to thread paint on Connor is his arm and feet. Can't wait to see this part finished. Hopefully I can get the majority of it done tomorrow.
While I've gotten a lot done this week I've been frustrated because things like Doctor's appointment, grocery shopping, cooking, etc., etc. have cut down on the time that I wanted to spend quilting.
I do have a face pattern ready as well as an enlargement of the new piece that I want to do. I have a new confetti piece almost ready to quilt. I'm saving photos of it until I have it finished.
Last week I showed a practice patch of thread painting water drops. This photo shows them almost finished. I am saving a little detail for the finished process.
It's been another great week in the studio.
