I want to share more photos of my most recent piece
before I go into details of this wild and crazy day!
When I removed this piece from the steamer last night
and shared a few photos, I had not ironed it.
I did that this morning.
I realized that I liked the back even better than the front!
So, I will share more photos this evening.
This piece measures 91 x 21". If I told you otherwise previously,
I was lying.
It is very tall....but also quite skinny.
Here are more shots:
these are detail shots
I did a lot of paper lamination (red) on the reverse side.
The paper lam. was too bright on the 'front', so it is now on the back!
I love how it just sort of shows through - simply a suggestion.
The yellow portion is near the center of this very tall piece.
Last night Barker, our eight year old, began showing signs of distress.
I took him to the Vet right away this morning.
She thought he might be verging on Bloat,
which is what I was fearing.
She kept him in order to observe him and do more tests.
It was a very long seven hours until I called to find out the verdict.
Facebook friends were so supportive!
Thankfully, he is not verging on bloat but had several other 'issues'
including tracheitis and the beginnings of arthritis in his hind hips.
So, our walking will be curtailed and he is on
drugs to take care of his other complaints.
He is such a sweet sweet dog.
The Vet said that they normally have to sedate dogs to take hip x-rays -
He remained in whatever ungodly position dogs must assume
for such photos!
He is a sweetheart, and I'm so relieved that he is back home tonight!
p.s. I'm trying a new layout on my blog - what do you think?
change is good.......isn't it??????
