It’s obvious. Clearly visible everywhere:
Summer is over, fall not only coming but definitely at it’s high peak. And although I can see the beauty of this (given some sunshine to illuminate my perception!), I have to admit I am absolutely not ready for this.
A few weeks ago I took the chance of a particularly warm day and had my last lunch on the terrace for the year.
But today I decided I had to make the best of the sunshine there was, and instead of staying inside my studio I took my quilt and hand-sewed the binding on the terrace as well.
And when the binding was done, instead of going back inside, I took my knitting, trying to catch as much of the sunshine as possible.
|My son has graciously permitted me to knit him a pair of socks. |
(So far he has been refusing to wear anything that's knitted.)
But now it’s clouding up again, so that little enjoyment is over.
But it’s been a good day to end a good week – lots of work, and got some things done, too. Most of the studio time was spent orking on “Light Sculpture”.
|... and avoiding to have to sink them.|
Which is not called Light Sculpture anymore, my husband vetoed that title. He also changed the quilt’s orientation, it’s now in a vertical orientation rather than the horizontal orientation originally planned. And he also vetoed my thought of adding buttons made of mother of pearl, which would have caught the light in a different manner than what I am using right now. Instead, he introduced washers as a possible addition, after a bit of consideration, however, we decided against it and for simplicity of design.
I hope to finish the binding perhaps today, if not tomorrow. And then I am all set for entering this quilt to the German Guild’s challenge, together with Play of Lines XXXII. Let’s see whether one of these two makes the cut – and if so, whether it will be the one which makes the maker recognizable, or the one that doesn’t.
