Day 2 working in The Workshop

Dscn2993 Three days each week will be devoted to being in the workshop.



Today was devoted to working on the grid.  The grid is balance, predictability, calming...but then I thought about my grandmother and great grandmother who where huge bingo fans...they could work the grid of bingo cards about 15-20 at a time and still keep an eye on me playing at the most 5 which kept me hopping.  After I was old enough to drive, I inherited the duty of taking them to bingo which meant I eventually was drafted to stay versus dropping them off and coming back to pick them up.  I don't know what is happening currently, but bingo halls had the best fried fish sandwiches!  The fish sandwich was a pay off for staying with them.  I have a bead that is a blue fish...I might add it onto this grid which will be moderately beaded when it is near complete or completed. 



The above thoughts came to me while sewing the grid and playing with the beads for this piece...one audition reminded me of loads of bingo chips on a card.  I really don't know what it all means other than these where the thoughts I had and I wanted to get them written down.  Bingo is anything but calm and I want to lean toward the grid being calming and balanced...

  1. It does look calm and balanced. The beading sounds like a good idea.

  2. Run with it! Like Diana said, this one looks calm and balanced, but who's to say you couldn't also do more grids? Maybe the next one can explore the Bingo theme more -- with louder colors and fish beads :-)
