The plumber came today to fix some terrible plumbing that we discovered was in our bathroom when our ceiling caved in due to the porch roof leak. So I took the dogs upstairs to my studio so they would not be in his way following him everywhere while he worked. So I spent that time making my new background for my Great-Horned Owl piece and then sketched him out. I found a photograph I especially liked on the website of Ron Austing a wildlife photographer. I loved one of his photos so I emailed him asking permission to use one of his photos, I included photos of my other two owl quilts. He replied that he is giving me permission so I copied that email and put it in my files. His website with the photo is: Ron Austing
After finishing the background I sketched the owl from his photograph. It took quite a long time since this quilt will be a little bit bigger then the other two.
The plumber left late and now we have new plumbing in the bathroom. It looks strange amongst the construction up there but we feel so much better that is fixed before the ceiling is closed up again. Next step...the contractor who is coming in the next few days.
This is one of the only rooms that is feels untouched by this. The guest room has the closet emptied out so that they can put in an access panel to the tub for any future issues so that is all over the bed. The dining room has all the kitchen stuff in it that had to be moved out of the way for this work. However the living room is still comfy and that is where I am now.
