To, Too, Two

So, what have I been up TO? Well, it's certainly been TOO long since my last post. More than TWO months. The weather here has been depressingly rainly lately, although everything looks very green, including some things--like my white picket fence--that shouldn't. In April I managed to work outside and discharge a number of pieces. More on those when I make more progress. I also soda-ashed a number of fabrics for continuing work. When it's a sunny day, the front bushes make an excellent drying rack.

I also concluded an eight-week workshop at the Newark Museum. Here are some of the results. More work needed.

This is a close-up of one piece I've been working on. It started out as four small pieces, which I sewed together and am now trying to make into a whole. It's looking better, but still needs more work.

I'm lagging behind on the quilting of the Celestial Navigation series: one down, two to go. Crit group is coming up in about a week: nothing like a deadline to spur progress.

Hope the weather is good where you are.
