sure, the quilt top would have gone together really quick, but it just looked like the lazy way out
so, here we have block size number 3 (number 2 was, um, something not to be discussed!)
I like this size much better, and while it will be quicker than a double wedding ring to piece, it doesn't look like I'm being lazy
there's something about a pieced quilt top that just calls out for a certain "look", and I think we've reached it
I think we're ready to cut into the fabric that I bought for the project now -- hurrah!
this week I have started creating the sky behind this piece
along the way I decided I wanted to put a layer of silk organza over the top of it to give it the "glow" that I see in my "vision" of this piece, and right now I'm waiting for that piece of fabric to arrive in the mail
I think I'm going to be pleased with the result of this
I haven't started another beaded piece yet -- just haven't come up with an idea that seems worth the work
we'll see what ideas develop
one sock is knit and the second one has just had the heel turned -- moving right along
and yesterday I ordered materials for a Christmas project -- it's never too early to do that!
just keep chugging along
