Musing on Tuesday


Well, I'm still not entirely sure what I'm going to do this week. But I did make a start, clipping all the twigs to size for dolls, and beginning to make a tree totem doll, swathed in green silk fibres, with silk fibre hair and a feather in it. She needs sleeves...perhaps cascading leaves... sequins or beads, maybe... or lutradur leaves, such as Dijanne has in her gum tree pieces.

I'm tired, today, not entirely sure why. Robin had a tooth extracted yesterday, and has combined it with a viral infection (not, hopefully, in his mouth...), but has gone in to work determined to Soldier On... I woke in the night and couldn't hear him breathing, and had one of those moments where you think...is he? But we both woke at the alarm...so that was fine. And yes, I did check!

Another small piece, Flying A Kite, just a bit bigger than journal sized. It was quite comforting to be reminded by my friend Lynn that I do, in fact, make larger pieces from time to time. She tells me she might have room in the new extension they're building on their house, to hang a quilt I made them as a 'welcome to Scotland' housewarming present. It was, she reminds me, quite large, but I forget the dimensions.

Must Go Do Something...that was the last of the photos I've taken recently... or perhaps a nap?

Those small pieces can take a long time to complete! I work on much smaller pieces now too, Marion, though for some reason I'm making a single bed size quilt top at present.

I like this a lot. I think it's the sharp angles pointing in odd directions coupled with the overall elongated rectangular shape, and then the flash of the blue. Playing with the letter "H", are we?
