Finishing a Few Things

October 7, 2015

Week two since we returned from vacation, and I’m almost back to a routine. I finished two things – or at least brought them to a point to meet deadline – and that’s enough of a victory to break out the ice cream.

Two Cubas

This is the Challenge project about Cuba. I have an idea for beading, but have to quilt the project first. However, the rules only require that I finish the top, not the quilting and embellishing. The piece shows two images of Cuba – one desolate and alone, the other the workers’ paradise.

This was for a wedding. There are life symbols in abundance – the tree, the ring of blue for air and water, the ring of orange for the sun.

There are a couple more projects sitting on the sewing table that I would like to finish before the holiday rush commences. If all goes as scheduled, I might even get the Halloween decorations up (and down) before December 24th. Yes, I can hear the universe laughing.

Luck and wisdom!

Godzilla in the garden and other adventures

May 15, 2013

Getting back into a routine is one of the hardest tasks I face when I return from a trip. I’m distractable at the best of times (insert your favorite labrador retriever and squirrel joke here), but the week after getting back is one long bounce around the house.

 

I had two unfinished pieces, so that helped slow me down a bit. The first was the calendar block for July, which I finished.

The second unfinished piece was my Challenge, The Surface of Infinity. I didn’t finish, but I’m making progress.

The rest of the time I tried to figure out what I do around here, which means poking into odd corners to see what’s hidden there. On one of those expeditions I wandered outside, and noticed that some of the plants would do very well as scenery for a sci fi movie. I ran to fetch my son’s Godzilla action figure (which he intended to pitch out years ago, but I saved) and my camera:

 

Take me to your snap peas!

What a strange and lovely planet this is

Arghhh!

Arghhh!

Now that you’ve seen what’s in my garden, tell me what’s in yours.
