Well, we're still sans bathroom. No loo, no sink, no shower, no bath, but this morning we appear to have tiles stuck to walls. Progress!!
So, I still can't paint or use my machines as there just isn't room. I have however managed to do some hand sewing. Nothing massively exciting I'm afraid, just attaching a bit of extra wadding and fabric so that I can make a frame for Life 4.
I'm putting frames on all the Life quilts as it focuses the viewer's attention on what's going on. At the moment, they all have the same dark brown for uniformity.
Whilst I was sitting around doing nothing much, I began to think about the next two Orientation quilts. In my last posting I mentioned one would be a still life, but that got me thinking.
Every picture of course is a captured moment - there is no movement so essentially figurative work is all still, but I wanted to find a way to convey stillness to go alongside my pots and flowers.
I trawled through one of my favourite books about Hockney.
There will be a low table with a vase of flowers.
That's my thoughts of yesterday anyway. It might change a bit but "Still Life" will be Life Quilt number 6.
The fabric Laura printed for me will now be Life 7 and will be called Fighting Back. (about angst, depression etc - need to do more research on this one!)
I was going to stop when I got to Life Quilt number 10, but I may go on and on and on and on!! Things just keep popping into my head so I might keep going until I run out of ideas.
