I've been feeling a bit down since I rolled out of bed this morning, most likely because I had trouble getting to sleep last night and this morning was looking like another rainy grey day. So I putzed around getting some errands done and was about to get to work in the studio when the mail came with a letter from AQS. It was a thin one, which means that the big leaf quilt was rejected.
So I threw away the letter(I never keep rejection letters), made a bag of popcorn and ate it. Then I had some of my favorite very dark chocolate, Lindts 85% dark, which is always on hand. Still feeling a bit bummed I remembered that Don had bought me my favorite chips awhile ago and I had hidden them away. Hidden no longer!
I'm not much of a chip person, but I love these. I ate most of the bag!
Can't say I feel any better ,but I am full. Does this mean I'm an emotional eater????
I did finish the hand stitching and machine quilting on the piece I showed last week. I was trying for a nebula, but it looks like amoebas. The title is the Amoeba Nebula. I'm having a difficult time getting a good picture of it.
I've got a new project in the works. The art guild has decided that I should do the art work for this years raffle, which has always been a painting. I'm making another big leaf, only not as big. I've got it drawn out and should get into the studio and do some work on it. It will be about 28" x 42" and made with fabric leftover from the first one. After it's quilted it will be mounted on stretcher bars so that it hangs like a painting. The leaf shape is just a bit different from the last one.
Now I need to find another show to enter the big leaf in, I've usually had good luck with rebounds. Whenever a quilt gets rejected I try and find another show to enter it in right away.
