Yesterday, my spurt of energy came from a visit from two friends; one, Mary, is walking across the 31 states east of the Mississippi River...she is taking a reprieve here in Louisville. I will not seize to be amazed that I know someone who is so bold to undertake such a venture! She started October of last year in Boston and has 19 more states to walk through before she returns home to Boston. Over lunch I sat asking questions and listening to her tell stories in that Bostonian patois about the people she has met and her experiences. Mary has a facebook page called Because I Can where you can follow along and read about her positive experiences on the road.
I used the spurt of energy to further progress on #2 in the series of Morrison quilts. Here is the progress thus far on Fallen Through the Crack (working title) based on The Bluest Eye.
Quilting should begin on this piece sometime next week and the next quilt in line will be based on Tar Baby but I'm still working on composition. I see 2 shared elements in the first one I did and this one...before I name them I'm going to see if they will continue to show up in the quilts to come. There will be more encaustic pieces in between.
