When I sat down in front of the TV to watch a little football last night, I really thought I’d be able to finish the stitching on this collage.
Simple stitching–won’t take long–maybe even get two done——not so much! It always takes longer than I think and I also add more stitching than I originally plan, too.
Almost done, though, and I’ll mount it on a canvas.
Put paint on the larger one I did in the workshop, too. I think it’s ready to stitch, but I’ll take another look at it in the studio before I bring it up for ‘in front of the TV work’.
Hmmmm…as I was working on it, I liked it. Now I’m not so sure. Collage is very busy work, isn’t it.
Found a scrap basket with trimmings from other quilts and thought I’d try to collage them together. Started with this black piece and a floral, and some couched yarn.
It might be all right, but it needs more work. This next one needs lots more work, but has possibilities.
I’m thinking that a narrow strip of another color between strips might be nice. And it might be more trouble than it’s worth and I throw those other bits away without any ‘scrap-lover’s guilt’.
I think I’m packed for teaching in Dallas. If I look around and think about it, there is always something more, but I don’t really need anything else…I think!
Oh–maybe I should think about a suitcase for clothes, too!
