Coffee was second on the agenda after waking and since the coffee pot (thanks Uneena) is inside the gallery, I opened a little early and spent my time doing somewhat low-stress hand work. Here is a lotus flower that I drew using water-soluble dense charcoal. I'm thinking about quilting or embroidering this motif down the center panel of the "doorway quilt".
The other thing I did was cut up a previously finished quilt that just wasn't working into 3 smaller sizes (about 5"x5") and began beading on them...solely an exercise in composition and colour. I made the quilt when I was exploring mono-colour. Although the quilt didn't work for me any longer, I couldn't waste the beautiful texture.
After a pat on the back for meeting an exhibition deadline yesterday for a local juried show and putting the paper quilts (I've made 6 or 7) on hold, I'm not sure what's next from the Chitlin' Circuit Studio, but next week has RESTING written all over it!
