I'm on my laptop in my studio. A rainy, stormy day - but I still enjoy gazing out to the sea, though it's a bit turbulent. The beach sunflowers are blowing this way and that. The bird feeders are swinging back and forth as well. The prickly pear cacti are pillars of strength - they are blooming big beautiful yellow flowers.
Me, I'm grateful to be inside, cocooned in my studio.
I've been taking an online class from Jude Hill - Sun, Moon, Stars - I'm learning so much. I had started some hand stitching on the ice dyed fabrics my sister and I dyed awhile back. This began my journey back to hand work. The peaceful in abnd out of the needle and thread pleases me. It's a relaxing and meditative activity. Here's an image on the last piece I created. I had the best time working on this one. I have a couple more ice dyed pieces but the images are on the regular computer. Melted Fusion I and II are on display at my Island Art Association. I'll post the images soon.

The two next images are products of my raw edged applique and machine quilting. A fun, relaxing time of creating. I really ought to title these.
