Mixed bag at school today with MCAS testing making the schedule lighter than usual. Both feet are flaring up, reminding me of the pain levels that used to make me couch-bound with ice. Thank god for medication and plain old getting used to it. Though there were a few moments today when I was reminded with sharp stabs in the mid and forefoot as I tried to walk. Brutal. The show goes on, though, and I am trying to just keep moving. So much to do in the next few weeks at school!
So I put together the new lawnmower. It is my favorite color, lime green. We shall see how it works when the feet calm down a bit and it is a bit cooler. It was easy to put together and is sturdier than I thought it would be. Hoping for dry weather this weekend to give it a whirl.
As for art, I am again experimenting with digital printouts. I have selected one that I printed last summer to start with, and have matched it with other smaller images that connect in a personally relevant way. I can see the embellishment steps, but want to work in some fabric collage, too. This is challenging as I usually make images with fabric, and in this case I will be adding texture, pattern, and smaller shapes of less realistic things. And then there is paint to add...then I can stitch it on the machine and see where I am with it. Still deciding if it should be assembled as one irregularly shaped piece or if I should make separate parts and build a relief. Or both. So many options to try, and at my snail's pace, I'll never be able to try them all. Sigh.
It is a lovely warm Friday and that is enough to get the weekend started well. Off to the races!
