I’ve been drawing designs with Spoonflower for several years now. It’s an enjoyable way to practice digital drawing and get ideas for design. I’ve just uploaded my next design for Canadian Wildlife. I’ll post that once the voting is open to the public.
In the meantime, I’m still making progress on the little table top screen I call Bargello Jumble. I’m beading the last side of the fourth panel which I will hand quilt. Then I’ll create cloth hinges between the panels, supported by chopsticks. A member of my Free Range Quilt group suggested a glass, two-sided, rotating picture frame. I’m just not sure where I’d get one to fit my creation. Each panel is 3×9 inches. So, for now, I’ll stick with my original plan.
I usually have several projects going at the same time. I’m also working on making another bag for the neighbor who gave me 4 yards of material because I sew and she doesn’t. I don’t’ think she was expecting to get it back in a functional form. I still make masks now and then. When I finish Bargello Jumble, I will start on another thread painting of the Lesser Gold Finch and other small birds. So much to do! Never enough time! Even under home shelter I’ve been pulled in several directions at once.
Finally, I thought you might like to see some of my garden. We had a tremendous rain last night. I may not need to water for a couple of days. Our rain barrel sprang a leak along the seam, though. It’s always something.
