Finished Big Red

It's finally finished except for a bit of handsewing on the binding ... and a hanging sleeve. It feels so good to create the first piece of art this summer. It's been a series of settling in here at the cottage. First time when we arrived in late May, then neutralizing the cottage for the renters, finally getting it all back to how I like it ... again ... when we returned from Colorado. Plus, there's the time it took to reorganize and paint the furniture here in Studio North. Alas, now I feel in the "groove" and comfortable in my space.
