100 (week) day challenge update

Fragments – work in progress

I’ve completed 35 days / 7 weeks of my challenge and I’m really happy with my output but it still feels like hard work making myself go to the studio some evenings.

Today I have spent 6 hours at my sewing machine sewing hundreds of parallel lines on my latest large scale Ruins piece. And I have enjoyed every minute of it. Tomorrow evening I will be stitching parallel lines on the last of the small Canal Street pieces for next years exhibition and it will feel like a chore. Same process but on very different scales. I don’t need a psychiatrist to tell me that my heart still wants to work BIG. But those small scale pieces are necessary – if only because they are more affordable. So I will keep going. Maybe when I get to 100 hundred days I will have fallen in love with working small ….

  • Day 26 – 1 1/4 hours making thermofax screens.
  • Day 27 – 2 1/2 hours finishing thermofax screens and starting Fragments pieces.
  • Day 28 – 2 3/4 hours spent collaging 6 Fragments pieces ready for stitch.
  • Day 29 – was out in the evening with the day job but still managed 1 1/2 hours – go Leah!
  • Day 30 – Oops, had to spend two hours labelling and packing quilts to send to Festival of Quilts.
  • Day 31 – 1 hour spent on layouts for the exhibition at World of Glass (I have more than enough small pieces, yes!) and 1 hour spent stitching.
  • Day 32 – 2 hours stitchin’
  • Day 33 – didn’t happen, hot and stuff day so gave in to the temptation that is ice cream and a good book.
  • Day 34 – 2 1/2 hours stitch’
  • Day 35 – 2 1/2 hours stitching and adding little red accents to the Fragments pieces.
