stayed up late getting this piece underway. There's no batting so I guess it doesn't qualify as a quilt yet. Working on the canvas may have been a mistake but the ravelled edges seemed to work. Jake helped my layer the colors and arrange things - the big twist in the middle was his idea. I hate the red ...why did I use it? That deep dark phobia about the crayons - that if you don't use each and every one of them when you color, the neglected ones conspire in the night to get you. Once I had finished tacking everything down I realized that I had seen this before..a drawing of mine from 1991 that I scanned in out of an old notebook .
