You'll be pleased to know that those slippers make another appearance in this quilt!
Here it all is layered up and waiting for me to attack it with my pencil.
The pose was awkward because it was an amalgamation of photos taken some time ago and they are quite blurry. I'm not a photoshopper, prefering to do battle with my pencil and a good rubber!

As you can see I've put some darks in already. I haven't stitched the body with it's words yet, but I couldn't resist a quick dabble with a watery wash.
Below: in the slight pause between quilts I have been working on an altered book about time for another quilt later in the year. It's not only good fun for me to let my mind wander free like this - jotting down anything that comes to mind - but is a great catalyst to deeper thoughts. It's also a great memory jogger.
