I know I spent plenty of time in my studio this week, but I have precious little to show for it. Of course, given how hot it's been lately, a lot of that time was spent sweating and drinking copious amounts of ice water, and then sweating some more. I'm currently dreaming of a sewing machine that could be operated while reclining in a lounge chair out on the deck. Surely someone could invent that, right?
I did get all the blocks sewn together for Allietare, and pieced enough 1.5" strips of gold to make up the first border. I then folded it all up together and stuck it into my box of tops-to-be-finished-later. (It's now keeping my RSC2015 Ohio stars company. I'm sure they'll get along fine.)
And I got a bunch more pieces cut for Storm at Sea, and even got a few more bits assembled, but since they look just like the bits I showed before,
it doesn't look like much of an accomplishment.
I finally made a few blocks for the 365 Challenge, but either I forgot to photograph them or the camera is hiding them from me. I'm fully two months behind with that project at this point, but I long ago gave up any pretense of catching up. I'm going to just trundle along at my own pace, content to be left in the dust.
The second of my Gwennie Medallions is now also finished, unless I change my mind between now and the big reveal, and add some more. I'm teetering between "It's just right the way it is" and "Maybe it would be better if I did this one more thing", and it's a toss-up which side I'll land on. But, hey, you know how much I like a good dither.
And I finished up a super-secret project that's going to my grandson for his birthday, but since I haven't given it to him yet, I'm only going to offer a glimpse here.
It really seems like he should get first look, ya know?
