Mission accomplished! Kool Kaleido is (finally) fresh off the frame and ready to be bound.
I also finished this pretty customer quilt.
Here is what happens when you shove things any-old-where for about a year.
I functioned by grabbing what I needed and running for the back yard! Though I love working outside in summer, it makes sense to have an indoor option for the rest of the year.
At first it seemed overwhelming, but it only took a day to sort the mess.
|The pile of fabric on the island is destined for the dye pot!|
I "found" the floor and cleared the counters. Everything now has a designated place.
The room is broken into zones for different hobbies (stained glass, fabric painting/dyeing, lapidary), and the island offers space to work.
|Look! Bare floor!|
Facing the stained glass zone.
Now I can actually use the room again. I love it!
ALYoFMy A Lovely Year of Finishes goal for August is to bind Kool Kaleido and get it mounted on a frame. Not a lofty goal, but realistic!
Summer DelightsHere's what I stumbled across in the heart of Edmonton last week when I walked to the Alberta Art Gallery from our condo. I love finding gems like this on my little adventures!
And, here's our supper from last night - flown in fresh from Nova Scotia (traveling with Amy's folks). Quite a feast!
|Amy & her folks provided a fantastic feast!|
