Back to Work

Toward Home 2008

I hope you all enjoyed the holiday season... I had a great time visiting with friends and family. We hosted a New Years pajama party it sure was nice to be comfortable all evening.

I learned to knit a simple scarf and have one in process. My daughter is almost finished with her third scarf.... she is a very fast knitter. Today she is home sick after a fainting this morning mid shower. We suspect flu dehydration but will be seeing a doctor this afternoon to make sure. She is currently feverish and on the couch reading Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice. I am enjoying the unexpected day off from my coffee shop job while keeping an eye on Savannah and doing some research on dyeing silk.

Saturday my husband and I sat down for a lengthy assessment of my work processes and I learned a lot and will be making some BIG CHANGES in my work space and work schedule. This was really interesting and also something I resisted a long time... now that we have started I don't know why I waited so long. Process improvement will only help me become a better artist and will determine my new work space requirements, and future investments in some remodeling of our home to allow me to work here rather than leasing a space. This is very exciting! Stay tuned for pictures. I am looking for contractors to begin work as soon as possible.

My line of discharge dyed tee- shirts continues to sell well and I am developing new designs for Spring.

The art quilt pictured in this blog sold just before Christmas.... I will miss it as it is one of my favorites.

I am hoping you enjoyed the season.

Be well and remember these are the " Sweet Years"
