I've been missing

I haven't posted in close to two months for a few reasons, my blog takes forever to download on my computer and on some of my readers computers and I don't know how to fix that and then I felt like why bother. Not great excuses but that's how I felt. I do post regularly on Instagram as thrulindaseyes, so you can follow me there.

I've been keeping busy with my stitching, collages and gardening, but pretty much staying home like most everyone else I know. Idaho and our very rural small town were among the last to get a
ffected by the Corona Virus but now we are one of the hot spots. Our town has about 150 cases and a whole lot of people that refuse to wear masks or social distance, so for me staying home is the best option.

I took an online class from Linda Germain on using books as art material. I got a box of old books from the Library and jumped in. We did collages from parts of the books, took photos of manipulated pages, created a new book and several more fun projects.

I made two more donation quilts.

Started something different for my July daily stitching. I've been attracted to asemic writing for quite some time, so I did something about that attraction. I'm stitching on a piece of denim from an old pair of my jeans.

I'm really enjoying doing this, except for stitching the date, I do wish I hadn't started using the date each day.

I'm up to 75 daily collages.

These have been fun and I'm amazed at how much stuff I have around  to use.

The weekly leaves, Burr Oak series is also on track.

That's it for now, I'll try to be a more consistent poster, although I can't say I'm impressed with the new blogger interface.
