I started a project a couple years back that I have really wanted to complete. It’s special to me for a number of reasons and I want it hanging on my living room wall!!! The latest ‘push’ comes in the form of really wanting to hang this piece in the gallery in June – so I have to get busy!!!! And because it’s going in that show, I can’t show you the big picture – has to stay a secret until the show opening. I can, however, give you a taste of what I’m up to:
I took a picture of my kids and Steve’s feet a long time ago. We were in Austria somewhere on a back road up in the Alps. Everyone was bored and we found an almost dry stream bed with a small trickle of water. The three of them (Steve age 33, Rachel age 10, and Ted age 9) entered into a “cold foot contest”. The winner was the one that was able to keep their feet in that icy water the longest. When it was over, I had to have picture of their very cold, very pink feet. That picture is the basis for the quilt I am working on now.
And here is a sample of what I’ve done this morning:
The top of the leg is to the left. I know, it’s bad—- but I can’t give too much away!!! You’ll have to come to the gallery in June! 🙂
