Snarl. Growl. Grrrrrrrrrrrr.

Oh, it's all right, really. It's just that Robin's not coming home for tea, and the small pizza I thought was in the freezer turned out to be a large chicken pie. Even I'm not hungry enough for that!

Today has really been a constructive one, despite an early start, which is never my favourite way to begin the day. More sleeves for more quilts, ready for handstitching. And three quilts that I thought were finished, turned out not to be. I do hope they are now, though. I ended up foiling them. I think they look fairly good, but I didn't take photos today, and now it's too dark. Tomorrow, maybe.

Meanwhile, here's a picture of Mask. It's dyepainted, and is the first piece in what was intended to be a series...I have two more masks painted, they have been for at least two years, but somehow they just don't seem to progress any further.
Perhaps it's that they are what they say they are. I like to look at a subject obliquely, to hint at or suggest a theme, rather than have it out there in your face (no pun intended...). Perhaps the trick would be to add some lutradur to the other two, change the way I see them... It's a thought. Either that or cut 'em up and piece them differently, or with other cloth... dammit. I don't need anything else to do.

You gave me a good laugh to start my day! I always find things in my freezer that turn out to be something else than I had thought they were. But do I label them? No-ooo. Glad I'm not the only one!Seeing this face is like looking in my mirror - I haven't had my morning coffee yet. Just let it sit there for while and see what it tells you it wants to become.

Some helpful people would say "Just leave it as it is; if it doesn't tell you what it wants, it must be finished." But I think you know better. So what if it takes another year or so? It could be well worth waiting for.

As for the medium pizza morphing into a large pot pie, how do those things happen? More freezer gremlins at work!

That's the trouble, Rayna. It wants brothers and sisters, and I'm not sure I want to make any more...sigh...

ps if you think that was funny, go look at the picture of my workroom on today's blog...
