Bad, Bad Blogger

Where, oh where, have I been? Yikes, I just realized its been a month since I wrote anything!
Well, I have been around, here and there. I finished two quilts and entered two shows. Mostly trying to take care of my mom who is fading slowly away. Dementia in the elderly is a slow, torturous way to go.
On the plus side I have been working on my website, teaching myself Dreamweaver. Evidently I am not a real good teacher.  I have the layout done, and some of the pages done. I have a page for each of the 18 quilts I want to show with a short story about the inspiration behind each one but I need to do the gallery page to link all the other pages and I am having trouble lining everything up. I know it shouldn't be so hard to do so I bought a new instruction book today and I will be studying again.
And today we got my mother to get out of bed and did a major clean of her room. She even ate dinner with me, homemade fresh tomato soup from the garden. I canned 9 pints of tomato juice today and had enough left over for soup.
Above is a piece I did for myself called Book of Hours. It has rust stains, bronze metallic embroidery thread, and beading coated with thick gel medium.

  1. I give you permission to NOT beat yourself when you don't post. Life interferes sometimes, as we both know. I am sure this time with your mom will find its way into your artwork, and bring even more depth to it.
    Your stitchery experiments are quite interesting and beautiful. They remind me of scars and stitches. Lovely.
