I was so happy to get our internet service back Saturday but I also admit to enjoying the 3 days of forced separation. I seemed to focus a bit better on some of my other projects. I did a lot of testing with my kiln on slumping wine bottles. I'll share all of that Saturday....if the primary project turns out OK.
I made some good progress on my Woodland Star quilt. The outside border is done and I've started the 2 inside borders. This quilt is taking a lot longer than it should. I'm avoiding working on it and I know why. Soon I'll be solving my avoidance issue too.
Some friends came over Saturday and I taught them how to make soap. They brought me some delicious fresh fruit in exchange. So we ate, we soaped and we did a lot of catching up. It was a really good day.
But the big news from the past few days is that I finished my second pair of Zentangled shoes! I love them. I ripped out the insoles, inserted my orthotics and I'm good to go. I even sprayed the Scotchguard on the without a disaster.
I like these better than the first pair. I really feel like I learned some things between the first pair and the second pair.
You will continue to see more of this art form from me. I can tell that it's really helping me work out that part of my brain that works out quilting designs.
I'm considering getting a pair of shoes in gray to Zentangle in black. They will be a little more subtle and would be great for winter.
Of course I had to have a feather on these shoes. I'm really excited to have these done and I've already started another Zentangle project that I'll share once I've made a little more progress.
I'm linking up at Patchwork Times today so check out what everyone else is doing there.
