Yes, I have been busy!! Mr. Blue is slowly getting his body! I've started to outline his little feet and then I'll switch between the rest of his body and feet! Those tiny #15 seed beads get to me so I relax with the larger beads (#10's).
And I'll have to remember to send a final picture to The Fiber Art Bee group! I did a lecture/trunk show (you can see that post here) back in 2016 and they presented me with LOTS of blue beads!
I've used so many of the beads they gave me in Mr. Blue!! This fiber group are wonderful and talk about active! They always have some interesting workshop taught by members or professional artists.
I've also completed my challenge piece for the online group, Art Quilts Around the World. Our theme this month is Nursery rhyme and it's due July 31st. I can't say what my piece is...but here's a sneak peak! And it's finished! YEA!!!
And I'm now working on the 4, 12"x12" squares I need to have completed by September for Tommy's exchange this year. Again, I can't show what I'm doing but trust me...I'm working away!
And on a good note...so far the injection in my wrist is holding up...although, I had a scare last week...I went to shift my body (hip hurts if I sit too long! ha) and used my right hand to help move my body! Not a good idea! Boy, did that hurt!!! So I kept my brace on for a good part of a few days and iced it. So far I'm ok! Whew!!!!
Bob has been working hard on our deck. We have lots of boards that, after 21 years!, are finally starting to rot. We have had estimates but they want so much money it's ridiculous! So, Mr. Fix-It has his project plan (on Excel!) and has been buying wood, an air compressor (the one we have is too heavy to move around!), a staple/nail gun, paint, etc.
He's pulled off some of the boards and has painted some new ones. Monday, I'll start painting the spindles where he removed the boards so that area is painted and hopefully will save from rotting. Have to give Bob credit...he's taking his time...that was my main concern he would overdo and kill himself...but he's doing a little each day. So far...so good!!! And he's still alive!!!
