Not Enough Time

Too busy with a weird work schedule. Yesterday was chilly enough to have the first fire of this fall. I managed to crawl over lots of boxes to get to my sewing machine. Printed out one of my my poppy photos and stitched on it. Part of decoration I am adding to the first of seven pieces of a Round Robin Art Project. Finally managed to finish up the first piece, get it in the mail to the next participant. I will be working on until ArtFest in March, where we will all meet up and share.



The highlight of the day was when Maureen came through Edmonds and we spent a wonderful afternoon visiting, eating, talking of cameras and art studios. She was one of my first flickr contacts, sharing her amazing landscape photography, and of course Sam, the dog I love via flickr. With the face of a teenager and the spirit of a wise, old shaman, is just as lovely "in person" as she is on her blog. She and Liz are meeting up Friday, I really wish I could get together with them! And I wish I had taken a better photo of us ;(



And fall threads in celebration of the chill in the air.

ok, first of all, that poopy quilt deal is GORGEOUS! I love it and will steal it. And the thread photo is so rich and lovely. It would make a fine note card as well. I'm a real fan of yours.

Oh Kim, you started the machine embroidery. Did you use the free form guide or just the regular stitching guide? I am so jealous, I want to do that!!!!
