In the 5 minute drive to Keith's office today we were discussion my early starts… I surprised myself by realizing, just how much I love getting up at 4.00 am.
I love the time of day, I love the ambiance of pre dawn, it's as if I'm blanketed in a cocoon of creativity and I gradually see the day begin.
The fusible web applique is prepared for each horse and placed into their own plastic bag.
Never the less, I still forget some things… I missed a leg today.!!!!
From this angle it doesn't look much work…but trust me it is…
The applique will be illustrated to give it a dimensional effect, but I will do that when it's appliqued and quilted because I get the thread to match better… previously I illustrated twice, once when I laid it down then after I appliqued and quilted…
In this piece I had to illustrate the shields this morning.
