We are out of 2020 and 2021 is just beginning. Hopefully this new year will be a nice beginning to a more normal year for all of us. I have spent some time after a bit of a creative slump in the studio. I did take a bit of time doing some rearranging of a couple of closet shelves to have fabric at a more visible level and easier to get too. A bit of clean up was in order as well.I managed to get the two lower roses on with their vines and realized I would have to at least pin on the center rose as the vines all tuck into it. I had the entire center appliqué fused together but not fused down to the background. Finally I got the third lower rose added and two of the stems appliquéd down too. I have a couple of the pedals on the center appliquéd around the vine ends. I don't like working with so much material and loose appliqués and pins, but slowly it is coming along. Only 5 more small roses and stems to do. It is going to be a LONG WEEK!
Nothing like a nice dip in your spa at sunset. One of my daughter's ducks somehow escaped getting into his coop for the night. She was back on her way into the house when she saw him enjoying a final dip for the day. Life is good!
