I really don't know where the time goes. My lake days are totally unstructured. I was up early enough, but somehow didn't manage to eat breakfast till close to noon. I just wasn't hungry, and who's to care?
About the only schedule that matters is feeding the Gypsy. No feedee, no peace-y.
I had fine intentions of getting into town to do some Christmas shopping (I know, I'm one of THOSE people, but if I'm not, I curse myself for passing something up. Not to mention, shopping early helps control panic VISA use...)
But I did lovely fun things all day yesterday...
Here's my little workspace -- the lake is in front of me and my duck pal is floating around.
Every now and then, I look out and see that the Executive Assistant has to survey the area. (Then he will take a massive leap and run after what I hope -- but doubt -- is a phantom mouse. Alas, I feel that we are not alone...)
I more or less finished an earlier project -- a journal. Can't do more up here, having left home a vial of carefully chosen embellishments. And I want to do fibers on the spiral and those are home, too. But pretty close.
Did a bit more on the composition book journals. Another layer of paint and starting to embellish.
These are time consuming but I'm liking them. And for $1.00 each at the dollar store, worthy of additional purchases.
More cards. Again, some of the finishing touches will need to be done at home but I'm making tracks.
And a few tags. More of those tomorrow.
This is my display and storage area! Not everything is there but you get the idea. I can live comfortably when it's just MY mess!
Then I painted what little silk I had left at home -- two habotai scarves and five handkerchiefs.
The scarves will get another layer and I'll show you those again later with the final touches.
Meanwhile, the hankies are a bit of a dilemma. No one wants to buy hankies anymore. So I find creative uses for them...
The catkerchief is a fun one, and I have a great model!
(There's also good for little sachets.)
And, I got organized for another round of tag recipe books!
I got about halfway through another knitted dish cloth and finished the fabulous Crazy Aunt Purl book.
So, today I'll go meet Virginia (we changed the date) and then meet Rick and his bicycle buddies for dinner after their third 100-mile day. I'm a little nervous because I have to drive by the Stonehedge Fiber Farm to get there. The operative term being "drive by."
Should be a good day.
Welcoming our newest Baby Grand, Cameron Joseph or C.J., at long last! I've wanted to post for a bit but Kevin and Molly -- after a...
I wish I had read one of my favorite books, "All the Light You Cannot See," by Anthony Doerr, before I visited St. Malo in 2012. I...
Normally, going to the lake over the fourth for a week is no debate. The house is there, the fireworks right across the lake so we have ring...
