Time has been passing at the speed of light, if not faster the last few weeks. Every time I turn around days have gone in a blur of business. Lots of customer quilting going on, but not many pictures. I really need to get someplace set up where I can take proper photographs of large quilts, my current setup leaves much to be desired.
But on the home front, we have a new addition to the household. Cocoa came to live with us today.
She has one blue eye, and one brown eye, which you can’t see in this picture. She’s as camera shy as her new mama is and I had to use the flash feature to get even this photo of her.
She’s still getting adjusted to her new home, but our existing furkids took to her almost immediately. Snowy did give me a bit of trouble this evening, he thought she’d been here long enough and wanted to play with her. Cocoa, on the other hand, still wasn’t sure exactly where she was, let alone didn’t want to play. He thinks she’s a puppy, but she’s really 4 years old and a shy little girl. They’ll learn to handle each other as time goes on! The good news is she’s learned to negotiate the doggie door (boy did that give me a start to hear while I was in the studio) and she’s eating; both of which mean she will adjust given time and tender care.
I’ve also been working on creating a few new pieces of art. After many trials and tribulations achieving the effect I wanted thread painting on silk that has been painted, I went back to what I’m comfortable with, photo’s on cotton. I’ve just started these two pieces, the beginning of a series of small works depecting Autumn and Winter in the Carolinas.
And it feels amazingly wonderful to be creating art again!!!!!!
