Coloring My World
I'm starting preparations for a local show I'll be hanging at the end of March. Two big(ish) quilts to make yet, two more pieces to mount on stretched canvas, 10 framed pieces to varnish, hanging wire and/or slats to be taken care of. My local art quilt group meets again on February 14 and I've yet to do our challenge quilt for the month...although it is designed and will get done this weekend. I've had no inspiration yet for Fiberactions' next challenge, impression, due March 15.
And then there was the bamboo earlier this week, what a job that was. It's clumping bamboo, there were no runners to deal with, but the roots were hugely knotted together and the root balls needed to be cut apart with an axe! A neighbor saw me struggling with my garden spade, hatchet, and two big sharp kitchen knives, came over with his axe, and in five minutes the job was done. Once everything has overcome transplant shock and gone back into growth mode, I'll take photos of the exterior of Rose Cottage. It certainly looks a far sight better than it did!
