Due to a couple of very busy weeks, I am behind in lessons and trying to catch up. I started my obsession pieces with circles. They aren't all cut out yet and I am still musing on the back ground and arrangement of the circles. However. i wanted to check in for the week. I am excited about the possibilities and looking forward to playtime with this piece. I used lots of scraps for the circles as well as some hand died fabric from a class I took five years ago. Cleaning out and using up so covered lesson 4 ! The black and white piece is a work in process from lesson one. I am starting a series with this concept so this is just a start.
Speaking of obsessions..... The reason I am behind is that I just completed back to back marathon weekend races---( plus, two weeks before running a multi-race weekend that included a half marathon). This past weekends 26.2 put me over my year goal of 1000 running miles!!!!! Not bad for being 66 years old. Proud of my accomplishments, however I must admit that "the committee" is telling me that I could have run a faster pace and that I really didn't need the lazy recovery days I took and used as a reason not to complete the lessons. Ugh... the committee spills over to every aspect of my life. I am relieved and very glad the pressure of the big races are over and I can put more of my energy into this class.
I am so enjoying reading and seeing everyone's work!!!!!
