Back from Hibernation

Well, it's been a long time since I last posted. And I've been doing nothing. Not even going for long walks since it's been too cold or too windy or too wet. Very wet today but the snow that was predicted didn't make it to the city. Yay!!

I'm trying to get back to doing some arty stuff and thought I would start with a fabric box. I made one last fall in a class with Keely Barham but have no distinct directions. I seem to need a lot of detailed instructions since my brain just will not move from conceptual to realization. And, once again, I've confirmed my inability to sew a straight line on the machine. How can that be? Maybe I can't cut a straight line. Maybe that's the reason. This is last year's box from the front view. It's quilted and sewn by hand except for the framework pieces which are machine stitched. I see that my pictures are not adequately cropped. Geesh! I must make a note of this for the future.

I shall post the current project only if it is a success. Otherwise it's garbage material.
