Woke up early, not enough sleep, not enough caffeine, did the Quilt National talk, forgot my headphones keep the sound from showing up from my video, oh well, answered questions…
Photo stolen from the QN Instagram. I’ve actually watched all but one of these. I find them fascinating. You can see all of them (they haven’t uploaded this morning’s yet) and all the artist videos for this year on the Dairy Barn YouTube channel. Also, if you want to see my studio tour with sound (because that was missing this morning), you can see it here.
I know. As a teacher, I should remember how this shit works, but my brain was not awake. So there.
I spent the time cutting out Wonder Under, because I find it easier to listen carefully when I am doing something with my hands…
Which, yes, means I finished tracing last night.
So many cat interactions on this…
It took quite a long time to trace, longer than normal.
More complicated pieces than normal? Maybe. Also maybe that I had to think extra hard about overlaps.
I could just blame the cats. They were in the way.
18 hours and about 6 yards. Now I just need to cut them all out.
Yesterday, the man and I did a little driving reconnaissance for some possible training hikes.
Water is an issue. But he has more physical therapy in store and hopefully will be back on the trail in a few weeks or so.
This lizard…I think he’s the one I follow up the steps sometimes.
He jumps up the steps in front of me like he’s showing me the way.
Anyway. The day is half over, because of the talk and the car had to go in and a bunch of school stuff happened (that gave me a headache) and then lunch and I had to record a video for another art group I’m in and it only took about 17 tries to get the words right. I’m tired because I got up too early, but will be walking later. And cutting out lots of Wonder Under. And hopefully crossing some stuff off the to-do list because it’s insanely long at the moment. Stupid long. Maybe nap. Nap sounds nice. I tried it yesterday but cats interfered. Ugh. Ah well. Whatever happens, art will be involved.
