Under the Needle
In the mean time I have been piecing a large piece based on my quilt One Windy Day. I rescanned the photo and enlarged it to what I thought was life sized but turned out to be a seven foot tall woman hanging laundry. Cool, I can roll with that. Now that the background is pieced and she is attached I have backing, batting and top ready to stitch. The machine is threaded and ready.
The studio assistant has picked a toy to play with but she usually just hides in the bathroom. All you see is a black rear end sticking out behind the toilet. Then when she knows you are watching her, a set of little ears pokes up over the lid. Funny!
Oh yes, if you were to drown in the bathtub you would be on your own, but if the phone rings she comes in to let you know. She's probably figuring I should answer it so the ringing will stop bothering her. Or maybe she thinks someone is calling her for a play day, she has many friends in the neighborhood who leave her pee-mail so why wouldn't they call?
On the good side, quilts have been sent to Ohio Designer Craftsman and Artist as Quiltmaker and another will go to the Ross Museum in Delaware, Ohio for the QSDS show.
