but things have been a bit chaotic around here. Besides the general backlog of work that my poor clients are so patiently waiting for, deadlines have been adding to the pressure. The quilt I'm working on is just not happening to plan, so I've been struggling with it. Trouble with committing to quilt shows before the work is complete is that sometimes things stall, but I can't just stop and let it come in it's own time, and forcing it can make things worse.
Anyhow, this afternoon I've been painting some Lutradur. I had paint left over (too expensive to waste) so I painted a couple of bits of cotton as well to use it up.
After I'd finished, I really liked the look of the paper I was using underneath to mop up the excess - an unexpected side product that I'm sure will come in handy.
