I know --- it's blurry
not only is it blurry, it's only a little piece of the whole
so why am I showing you this?
because yesterday I finished "the project that can not be named"
the facing is all stitched and the rings have been attached
the deadline for this piece is not until the day before Thanksgiving, but I'm happy to say that it's all finished!
and I promise to show you the real thing after that --- and the rest of the pieces that go with it too
yesterday I signed up to go to the SAQA conference next spring
I'm really delighted that next year's conference is within easy driving distance (we used to do an art show in Albuquerque every spring, and Santa Fe is about an hour closer)
and I'm also thankful to my sister, who has once again been the "supporter of the artist", and sent me the money to register
