Shipping Day

Custom box building, to ship work in, is my most inane task as an artist. Once I get over that idea and before I realize I’ve made some drastic mathematical error I actually enjoy doing it. This one turned out mathematically speaking pretty well, although I did loose interest in tape neatness.

Pot Holder Production

I found some great black and white vignette material that makes great pot holders particularly with vintage aqua linen in between.
New pot holders will arrive at The Muse on Tuesday and on my Etsy shop throughout the week.

New piece or Finishing the last piece

I just finished and photographed "Displacement Triptych" today. Image and paperwork are in the mail for tomorrows deadline and if the frame arrives on schedule, it will actually get to Snyderman-Works Gallery for the 7th International Fiber Biennial, opening Feb 5th.

A little stitching work got done yesterday before heading to town on account of no dog food in the house, which had lead to a breakfast of Soba noodles with peanut butter for the dogs that morning. It was actually their 3rd creative meal of the New Year, all of which was much more exciting to them than their normal “healthy“ dog food.
Today, dogs properly feed, I stitched a good half day and I am looking forward to hot white bean soup cooked on the wood stove and fresh baked bread after a walk home in howling cold wind.

I will be stitching every day, most likely, until the 12th to finish a new piece for the "7th International Fiber Biennial" opening in Febuary at Snyderman- Works Gallery .

Sunday's Family Dinner

Last Sunday Jerry and I did a sit down dinner for 18, his family and my daughter, all squeezed into our little house. We made marinated broiled leg of lamb, mashed potatoes, a clementine/radicchio/baby greens salad and fresh baked onion rye bread followed by zabaglione with thawed red raspberries we picked last summer. The wine was great and the dinner was a fantastic success, after much deliberating over what to cook that everyone would eat.
