Just when everything was going great in my studio as I worked through some ideas including adding my signature slashing lines inserted “after the fact” (see below)
for “Transfusion 12” – THE DRESS PROJECT, an email reminded me of my February 15th deadline. Last October I signed up for the Brooklyn Library “Sketchbook” project. As usual I started collecting stuff, and editing ideas until I felt I had a “vision” of what I would do. Well, time got away from me – so this week I was able to pull it off and complete my Sketchbook.
Actually I am pleased with the results. It’s focus is my “Hay . . . Keep Your Distance” series. Not so much the process but a documentation of the pieces with my blog posts that supported the completion of the 12 quilts. I even went back to add some of the United States infection rates and numbers of deaths during the time I was constructing those pieces. Packed up and ready to be mailed it rests against the recently completed (12H x 12W) – “Bathroom Renovation” piece. My photo image in “Bathroom Renovation” shows the lathe when we removed all the tile on the bathroom tub/shower walls many years ago.
SO WHAT DEADLINES are you working on? Which reminds me if I am going to make a couple of Fall 2021 deadlines I better finish and get “Transfusion#12” (approximate size 60H x 90W) off my design wall to start the many weeks of hand quilting. Happy Valentines Week-End! Remember if one MASK is good TWO are better. BTW – I just received my 2nd Covid shot. Stay Safe . . . Smith Stitch Studio!
