Coffee and Crosswords Every Single Day.
I feel more sharp in the morning if I sit down, have a cup of coffee and finish a crossword puzzle. I do this every single day. Some puzzle results are better than others but the coffee is always good.
The crossword puzzle image required a some thought. In order to avoid a confrontation about copyright infringement I had several choices. I could write to the paper editors and then also the crossword puzzle maker or I could make my own puzzle image. I created my image and then used TAP transfer paper to iron it to the white fabric. then drew my reading glasses, pencil and the cup and fused fabric images of them to the background. A little watercolor pencil and acryllic paint provided some finishing details. I noticed that I had done the background quilting with lines quite close together. The table has a nicely finished top and didn’’t need that sort of quilting, but that’s what I did. An explanation might be that at another time I did a lot of weaving and maybe subconsciously I am trying to create the look of a tapestry. I don’t know.
