SO, now a month after Halloween, I have finally had a few consecutive days of doing just what I want to, and resting. I even took a nap one day! I have crocheted some hats for gifts, knitted some scarves on my machine (also for gifts), begun learning how to spin wool into yarn on a friend's wheel, tried for the first time (after 25yrs of trying to pin someone down) to drive a manual vehicle (!!fun!!), began tinkering with one of the old 'repair-me' sewing machines sitting around, (embarrassingly) played some old video game I used to play years ago, planted bulbs, hung out with kids, made vegan egg nog, tons of cleaning, started a rabbit run outside (more permanent than the old 'lets see how the fence stands by its self in a circle on this hill")... and several more achievements.
As for artwork, I have planned to make at least one more watercolor painting this winter, so watch for updates on this.
Also, I will be working on working on workshops ;)
(no, that was not a type-o )
We will begin plans for this year's gingerbread house, which I think will be gluten-free.
The pictures below are of one of those dead-beats that just hung around our cemetery this October, and also I have taken on some studio help; pictures of my helpers below:
