DD Kay failed her college course this year. After four passes she has taken it very badly. She has decided not to stay on and retake. I talked to her about it the other night and pointed out that she is still a very talented artist and no matter what, she always will be. So what if she didn't do things up to college standards, or the way they wanted it, she can still draw and paint, she is still very artistic.
In an effort to cheer her up and get to spend a little time with her after years of her being shut away doing homework, I asked for her help with a new project.Last night in a three hour fest of scraps, ironing, templates and cutting we achieved all these leaves and two 108 inch vines.
We have a zillion leaves still to cut, but will be doing that gradually over time. The plan is to stitch the scrappy leaves to the vines and.....well I don't know, I'm making it up as I go along, I just wanted to use some scraps is all!
She also sat here the other day and cut circles of denim for me, while I sewed circles. So we have two long term projects on the go. That should please Hunney, he says I go too fast!
Right I'm off to see if I can make a better job of a cream bag for Elaine, wish me luck. Then I want to finish quilting French Roses.
1) Cool mornings.
2) Hot sweet tea.
3) A kiss from my Hunney.
