While vacating the creative space in my head I opted out of going to my Friday group too. So no more hexes got done. Last Friday I rejoined the group. I took my box of hand work along with me and now I have added to my stack. What will I do with them in the end? I still do not know.
Two Sundays ago I realizing my every other month on the third Wednesday group of eight who do dinner at Panera's would be meeting soon with a new challenge I had to get done. The challenge was to go to a Dollar kind of store, Family Dollar, Dollar General. You get the idea and spend no more than $5.00. So on that Sunday off I went, four block away to the Dollar Family Store to make my purchase of stuff or one item that I could incorporate into an "art quilt". Here is what I brought with the five dollars. I think I was in the store for at least an hour, picking up and putting down and contemplating what I could do with the stuff I found. I finally settled on these items. Crayons, envelopes, paper towel and a polyester cloth head band. But had no clear cut idea of what would come from using these things.
This what I made. I used paper towel for the batting. I toned down the screaming orange of the head band with the crayon and stitched the trees on three torn apart and crumpled envelopes.
Today after I finished reading the last few pages of a book on my nook I was back in the studio and in the process of working out a design when the doctor's office called to ask if I could come in today at 1:00 pm for my 6 month cardio check-up instead of on Monday. So I will be off doing that in a little bit.
In answer to a comment on a previous blog about whether I purchased a thermo mug with a image of one of my quilts on it. Yes I did. I really enjoy drinking both my morning coffee and cold drinks from it.
Gotta run, good thing the Doctor's office is just two miles away.
