When I say I have all my fabrics cut, I should say: Except for the fabrics I haven't bought yet. I really do think I need to add white. Look what I bought today at an art festival. It's called Rita's Garden by Rita Van Gorder. She does beautiful silk paintings, but this is just a print. I love the intense colors.
The kitties like it too.
Anyway, there isn't actually that much white in the picture - it's pretty much just the railing and clouds. But that mat really makes it lovely. I always use black to make my colors pop, but you definitely end up with a different, brighter mood with white.
Yup, need to go for it and buy more fabric - it's a hard job but someone's got to do it.
I'm almost finished with my hand quilting project. Just a wee bit more. I finished up Season 4 of Smallville and am anxiously waiting to start Season 5. I've so been rooting for Lex to somehow overcome his future evil but "I'm the villain of this story" was certainly an ominous sign of things to come. Watched "Hollywoodland" which was okay. I wanted to love it, but just didn't care for the whole parallel stories thing and wish they'd just stuck with George Reeves. Ben Afleck is great at being a classic movie star.
Top Design sucked this week. Remodelling a garage? Just call this a car commercial and be done with it. So don't care and didn't even finish watching it. The first episode of Top Design had a great challenge but the rest - bleah. C'mon, give them all a piece of funky folk art and tell them it has to go in a classical Louis XIV style room. (I actually read an article about Joan Rivers collecting folk art paintings by a Southern artist that her decorator refuses to put in Joan's classical apartment.) That would be interesting. Make it work, as Tim Gunn would say.
I'm doing well. For the fellow thyroid sufferers amongst you: went to the endocrinologist on Wednesday and my TSH was at 1.4. Furthermore, the endo wants it even lower so he upped me to 137 mcg of Synthroid. I've actually lost a couple of pounds since my first visit to this doctor back in December and that includes all that time I was off my meds and sluggish beyond belief. Woohoo, work, metabolism, work.
