Saturday was busy. A chunk of time was taken up by my flamenco class, followed by a post office run, a quick stroll through Yorkville, where I have not been for years, to see what the beautiful people (the people who think they're beautiful?) are up to: sunning themselves in outdoor cafés, the Jaguar illegally parked in front of the Sassafras Café, basically the same old same old. Actually I went to see if some of the old stores were still there. Then to Dinah's Cupboard to buy my French Haitian coffee beans, then home.
Intermittently, and at night, and today, I worked on this quiltie. It was a lengthy process but ultimately a satisfying one. Painting muslin, then dunking it into water to make it run, then drying, then transferring images onto it, then the composition of the whole. The composition takes up the most time; normally I don't have an image in my head, I work by instinct. And a lot of it had to be hand-stitched because my little machine refused to oblige.
