before I am off to the southern part of the state to do a workshop for a guild in Stuart.
I enjoyed vending at the quilt show put on by the Feather Princesses of Tampa last weekend and seeing so many familiar faces.
Both my daughter Lyn and my grandson Josh suggested that I make a few to sell. I thought about it for a day (last Sunday) and got up on Monday to prepare some small cuts of silk that I had on hand. Eight pieces in total. Although the weather here was cold (high 50's) the silk dried pretty quick because it was also quite windy.
I was able to paint 5 pieces on Monday and to break up the monotony of painting the same thing again and again, I changed up the paint colors, which I told myself was a learning experience. On Tuesday I finished painting the other three and started to quilt.
They all need facings, sleeves and labels, but I'll get to that later, now that I am in a painting mood, I think I'll start on something larger and simple tomorrow. I have a 36" x 45" piece of silk ready and waiting.
