Hullo, Friday! Like clockwork, you arrive bringing with you the weekend, which might be the best constant ever.
Last night my “new” book club finished Good Talk. It seemed most fitting that we met in the Lincoln Gallery for our final discussion. The conversations around this book have been enlightening and so very helpful. I am eagerly anticipating our next book, which will likely be Caste.
I don’t love FB, but every once in a while something amazing shows up there and this week brought a two-for! First, this story showed up and I could not get that story out of my head! I started Googling and discovered this article which included information to donate fabrics to these amazing men. (scroll down to the bottom of the article for that info!)
The second good thing that showed up was a post by a spinning “friend” who was feeling a bit overwhelmed at the size of her stash and she wondered if there would be any interest in joining forces to “spin down our stash” in the second half of the year. Ummm, YES!! (and so many people said yes! lol) More spinning in my life is never a bad thing. I have a sweater I want to spin for so this is exactly what I need to get that done! (if you want to join this group, let me know and I will send you the link to the group)
Finally… I have worked for two weeks on a pastel drawing… and this week I think it is finished. I put some final touches on it this morning and signed it. Oh boy… it is not perfect. I learned so much about my limitations with pastels… but I kept working and I learned some work arounds… and that is always a good thing.
That is all I have for this week. Have a great weekend everyone!
Oh, the quilts!!! <3
Happy Weekend, Kat!
I think your pastel drawing looks wonderful !
Nice job on your pastel drawing. Happy weekend!
That pastel is stunning! I think you are too hard on yourself — it’s gorgeous!
I don’t do Facebook, but I will happily join your spin-down-the-stash group in spirit. It’s something I’ve been focusing on this year, and it’s even more important now that I have to move the stash to a new home (my daughter is moving into what was the stash room, so I have to relocate it to what is her current room and will be the new guest room).
What a wonderful quilting story – thank you for sharing it!
Your pastel drawing is gorgeous, Kat. The shading and shadows are impressive – I shudder to think what my own attempt would look like. I’m really enjoying your summer projects!
your artwork is gorgeous and I love how you capture the shadows on the mountains!!
What a beautiful sky you captured with your pastels! Lovely, Kat!
I think your pastel is gorgeous. I am in awe of anyone who can draw and paint. Hooray for learning new things.
