Hi there !
Well the temperatures are much cooler ... downright freezing some nights but darned good for sleeping ! ... and the humidity has gone.
My water-soluble piece is now ... 'Out Of Hiding' !!!
I must start thinking of a name for it !
Just a few small areas to fill in of the main painting.
Now have to decide how to finish or what to put in my border.
I might make the border a bit larger than the 1 1/2" I had previously thought.
I find that taking a photo and then looking at it on my computer screen helps immensely, to see things I might have missed otherwise.
To occupy my mind the other day I took up a book that has been sitting on my desk for a couple of weeks ... 'from image to stitch' by Maggie Grey ... and was inspired to play ...
... a piece of iron-on interfacing on crumpled brown paper glued to ordinary printer paper and one of my Lake Huron sunsets printed in black ... I will remove the paper and put the 'piece' onto something else (water colour paper, fabric, whatever ?) and see what happens when I add hand and machine stitch to this ! Love how the interfacing and brown paper took the ink.
Back to the rain ... a week ago, after visiting hubby in hospital, I got caught in another violent storm that took down a lot of trees in our city ... the rain so blinding that I couldn't see where to pull over and my truck felt like a giant was shaking it !
I managed to crawled along 'til I was on someone's bumper and followed him into a parking lot where we waited out the storm ... maybe all of 10 minutes but what a lot of damage.
Hubby has walking pneumonia and is now on the mend at home.
Boy, I had almost forgotten what it's like when a grown man gets sick ... if a tree falls in the forest .... ?
