All this lacks is the blue jays. They are so small that my applique skills would need a boost to do the way I intended originally. (That and my glasses prescription, too!) So I am looking into alternatives - think I've found one, but we shall see.
Blue Jay Summer is a little wrinkled right now because it's on my design board. I wanted it up where I could see it, vertically, the way it will be displayed. I can't wait to get back into the studio and finish it up! I have enough of the background fabric to do the back, and MAYBE enough to do the border. If not, I may look at the dark green, or one of the other trees. We'll see. I am hoping I have enough of the ground.
If I can get my act together and get some restful sleep, I can get out in the studio again and get some things accomplished! Right now, though, I just want to crawl back into bed. Not that I didn't GET sleep... apparently I just didn't get enough! Tonight, painkillers and try again.
In the meantime, I am planning the details of our first class - it doesn't happen until the 11th of August, but I want to be prepared. Maybe even over-prepared. I can always not use something if there's no need or no time, but I can't always make up relevant stuff on the fly. (Well, I could, but I want this to be useful to all the students). Maybe a handout...
