I made a mess again.
Only a small one...
The ORANGE was just so INVITING!
I'm surprised at home many of you also like ORANGE.
Have you all made ORANGE quilts?
I do find it a difficult color to work with.. it demands so much attention...
I was trying to cut the power of the color on the block above..
Not sure I can handle an entire quilt like this....
Something to ponder.
Its' a great challenge to see how to maximize and minimise
the amount of color you use.
Dependig on it's (color) placement,
how much or how little you use can make or break the quilt.
Will this be obnoxiously bright?
Will it mellow when you see other colors around it?
Like this... to much color?
Or just right?
By adding more information it takes the SHOCK VALUE down a notch.
Same sort of idea... to much or just right?
I do have a lot of shots of ORANGE....Don't I?
Yes, It's alot of ORANGE,
But don't you FEEL better just looking at orange?
It's such a happy color!
I took Judy's advice from yesterday and found a place for the ugly annoying file cabinet
that I had taken out of my studio for lack of space... (yet I have no where to put it
in my home either) I dragged it back in, and for the moment, stuck my ironing
table on top of it, until I can make a new big flat ironing space...
For now it's great! It's the same height as it had been standing on it's own. perfect!
Nina pointed out my cutting table. I designed it and had it made
at a cheap furniture maker place here in NYC. Since I ma TALL, I had it built my height..
it stands about 35'' tall and I can fit, 12 of those BIG plastic bins under it when I have it clean!
Right now I am still organizing it.. as the bins furthest BACK needs to be stuff
I don't dig out very often...
If you don't have a lot of space,
this is a great way to keep your storage...
I guess I better get to cleaning that up and the mess I made last night...
Do you like the "studio in action" shot? Seeing my every mess? ZOIKS!
My biggest secret... I'm very messy... but don't tell anyone...
