I'm trying to make some progress toward something quilty, despite the little and big glitches, deaths, job changes, holidays... I tried to think about how to make art about my sadness at the death of our partner, but I'm not ready for that.
So I have all the beads and threads to start embellishing "Thorny" sitting beside the couch.
But instead of doing that, I've been designing the City Hall quilt. It's taken about ten days of stolen minutes to collect up (and buy) the fabric colors I want to use, study some photos and renderings of the era, make sketches combining those with elements of the real City Hall,
