mostly in pictures.... can't be at computer for long but connecting with my art peeps keeps me feeling human.
|Love my metallic watercolor set from fine-tec|
|I write thoughts on the backs|
the next ICAD prompt I attempted was "Bird"

RSC scrap color this month is Red... I made a dress from the book paper pieced home... definitely not my favorite paper piecing as it has too many angles, and isn't printed with seam allowances between sections of which there are lots in a small block. But. I like her mid-century vibe a lot.
I added a cute button to the dress, and wish I had a dress like that now. The tote has some iron on sequins and I'm going to sew those flower buttons on. I would like a tote in turquoise and pink, those scraps are from fave fabrics
|the undecorated tote, two sections had to be joined with a Y seam, OMG|
I finished this big quilt's binding sewn by hand this week, sitting watching Grace and Frankie on Netflix trying to distract myself from pain...
I pulled out a hand sewing UFO too.... for that distraction element, and am working away at the final tumbling blocks to the whole thing,
there is a lot of the day in 24 hours.... I am phobic about hospitals, and doctors and have had so many the past month, that my nerves are frayed, and I suspect the adage God won't give you more than you can handle is wrong. I am beyond emotionally broken... barely functional, find I want to stay in bed to avoid life. Ever felt like that? There is no answer yet, no relief yet, but one step in front of the other.
I make art, because I need to
thank you for listening, and all your prayers, you all have been the bright lights for me this week
