Returning to an Unfinished VT Painting

Still hot but a much better day!  After a relatively early walk and breakfast, it was time to go off to my studio class.  It had taken me considerable effort last night (probably befuddled by headache and humidity) to choose what I would paint, and by the time I got to class, I was all right with my decision.  Much like my decision about quilting (complete one unfinished project before working on a new one), I chose to work on the painting I started last year in Vermont.  Est and I both worked on this subject en plein air, but she finished hers ( I think)  and I hid mine from sight.

Here's where it stands now:

There is still a lot to do, but it's on its way, and I plan to take it to VT with me to work on there.

After class I went down to a quilt store (I know - you're probably thinking, "Oh no, not again!), but I needed some thread for my wool work and two pieces of fabric if I could find the right color.  I chose the thread, bought some red wool, and found one of the two fabrics before wending my way home.

Once back here again, I figured it was a good time to work on the Block of the Month for the Guild.  And here are the two I made as samples after finishing all the cutting:

One more thing to check off.

As I said, it was a good day!


  1. I recognize the barn at our Perennial Garden location. You really captured the look of the place.

  2. the barn painting is great so far!! And I like the BOM for Sept. It really is a fall quilt !!
