Working on some new pieces for a special show in April. It has been interesting to work freely without my usual constraints. Also new classes coming soon, if you want to keep up the this years classes, workshops and all make sure you sign up for my newsletter( the next one is going out soon).
Even though it is winter I still love the soft, muted colors of the yard and garden. We have been talking and planning for some changes in the outdoor space for next year, slways on the look out for ways to make it more sustainable and add more food to the household. Looking forward to a the new year with many ideas. Hope you all have a fun New Years Eve! See you next year.
It is getting to be a crazy summer. Being so busy with the extreme heat really wears you down. Some evenings I just have to sit. But I still need to push on to the new designs and business plan. This blog is being updated and I look forward to many new things, for me, coming in the fall.
A few weeks ago we rearranged our bedroom, it is a much better layout. The room is still very basic and one of the main things missing is a headboard. I just need to decide on something-SA can build anything, so I just need to design something. This room board is what I came up with, it is my usual color scheme, but I love all the shapes and texture.
I have a silk painting workshop coming up in Smithfield at the Art Center@319, contact them to register. This is a day long class at the new location of Isle of Wight Arts League we will learn and practice several techniques and complete several samples and a finished silk scarf. The class size is limited due to space, so sign up early to try out this beautiful art form. It has been a couple of years since I offered this class, so I look forward to working with everyone.
It is a beautiful day for the first day of spring. I do love this time of year, the sun is not so hot and all the new greens shoots and flower buds. I hope to get out in the sun, if only the pollen would not be here, it is so early, but at least the pines dust will be gone earlier.
I have to get my work orders finished, I have some garden/yard work to do this year. It helps me relax.
I have a new order for pillows and pouches. It is for a great place in Florida called the C.R.O.W. Clinic it is a wildlife rehabilitation facility. So, you know they want the bird art on all the items. Chickadees, Egrets and Owls are calling my name.
I have also started a new quilt project, with dye/printed fabrics. This is leading up to some new classes and workshops coming soon.
How is your week starting out? What projects do you have going on?
