|The subtle sunrise viewed from our|
balcony, this morning.
Not all sunrises are dramatic, just as not all days in the studio produce dramatic progress. Perhaps that is what makes the dramatic ones so special. There is also something to say for the soothing tranquility of simple, unhurried and casual days.
Margaret "Muv" Porwal has been following my progress this year as I work on my Deconstructed Sunrise series. So, when she was treated to a stunning sunset at her home, she snapped a picture and sent it my way. I asked, and received permission from, Muv to use her photograph in my series. If you have pictures taken of sunrises and sunsets that you are willing to share and allow me to use, please, please send them to me.

Although I continued to make progress on Deconstructed Sunrise #3 this week, it was of the subtle variety and like last week, much of it is hidden behind freezer paper. I'm expecting the dramatic unveiling next week or the week after.

Leah Day has been having fun with pumpkins, now that Halloween is just around the corner. I loved the look of the Twisted Tendril motif she came up with as a subtle backdrop for the more intensely quilted pumpkin. Naturally, I had to give it a try. This would make a fabulous design for borders and sashings.
3) Post the number of days I have worked in my studio in 2015 - 77/126
|I started piecing the lower 25% of the sunrise sky. Quite a|
contrast from the upper section of inky blues.
