Pelicans

Yay storm delay. Nope, those aren't words I say very often, but tonight it was true. I had just finished basting a client quilt and boom... Thunder and lightning, and it was loud. Okay, no quilting for me tonight. Wait, I should be working on the Pelicans!

I hand washed the newest piece of silk that I ordered, swishing and scrunching making sure all excess dye was released. Then I waited for the piece to fluff dry and then a nice press and I was ready.   I began marking the areas of the water than will be painted. Unfortunately, marking was a far as I got tonight. Sleepy eyes were kicking in and that is definitely not a good start for painting. So here's where I'm at...
I'm excited to be working on this again. Changing from the appliquéd water to painted water was definitely the right direction. 
More soon!!
