I have pretty much finished Laundry Day; I had initially intended to have some buttons on it, but wasn't pleased with the effect, so have decided against their inclusion.
I do like the buttons, but just didn't feel comfortable with them no matter where I moved them.
I am considering attaching the smaller piece to this striped fabric, but no decision yet. For some reason that fringey selvage that I used as a border pleases me.Working on this piece reminded me of an idea and a sketch I made a couple of years ago, and after some searching I located the original drawing. Have been considering it for the last couple of days and may attempt to jump into the fabric incarnation before long.
The new roof is on and looks much better. We changed to a light grey architectural shingle. Still some work to be done, but they are on another job today, so once again the pleasure of quiet and privacy. They will be back on Monday, but now that the roof is on, things should not be so noisy.
Mac is on antibiotics. Dr. C. said he found no evidence of cancer in the lungs or elsewhere, but he does have a gall bladder problem. This coming Monday, he will be back to see if he has to have his gall bladder removed. In these economic times and considering what I've spent in the last two weeks, I'm praying that the problem will clear up!
The blog world seems to be quieter lately; I'm not the only one who has taken a break from daily blogging. So...what is going on with you? Big (or small) projects in the works? Need to lie fallow for a time? So involved with the day to day that computer time is limited? Thinking creatively?
Oh, damn. They are back on the roof.
