Okay, so I was able to cross a few things off the list…not all things, but I’m pretty pleased with what I’ve been able to get done whilst also being Mama all week to an
insane *ahem* angelic 3-year old…
It really was a little too ambitious, but I like it that way.
Here is what I worked on this morning:
Forgive the bad lighting in the studio, but here’s what to look for in front of my table. I’m not done with it, and I’m not entirely sure it will dry by Sunday, but I’ll put it by the wood stove (but not too close!) and hope for the best. I forgot how much fun oil pastels are. And hooray for canvas!
I’m about to tackle this:
This is how I need to protect my felt works in progress, as the boy likes to run squealing through the studio…really quite disastrous for pieces that are laid out but not already felted. These stools slide under a little table…back in the BC* days, we used to have dinner and tea on the low table in our tiny apartment. Sigh.
Well, tomorrow I will, weather permitting, get some sneak-preview photographs up…
The New List:
Finish above felt pieces (as in, felt them already!)
Dry bubble wrap and nylon by the wood stove and start a new round of felt this evening
In the meantime, ply the 4 bobbins worth of singles
Two last yarns, spun from the lock
Possibly one more AM round of felting…
Photograph and label everything that needs it (weather should be good for that. cloudy = good pics)
Finish sewing up the last of the ornaments
Put together my ornament tree (went out and picked a pretty branch today…C will make a base for it)
PACK THE CAR CAR
C will take the goats to the new place tomorrow, so I should have a good chunk of time alone.
Okay, felting now.
OMG, DAY AND A HALF!!!
