It's been a long year of foot surgeries and knee replacement and not a lot going on in the studio.
A person can think that they can get things done after a surgery but it's amazing how long those drugs stay in your system!
I have managed to stay on top of my committments to the Letterhead Yahoo Group and get my mail art and art dolls out for swaping.
Now, that I have my new knee I find that I can get around so much easier and now I can push for work to be started on the second floor of the new barn. It will be my new studio when it's finished. I will finally be able to gather all my beloved craft items and fabric and keep them in one place instead of the garage, guest bedroom and small sewing studio. I am so looking forward to when it is done.
I have a new camera too so I will be able to take some pictures of what I am working on. The old one seemed to have needed to go to a new owner and disappeared from the seat of the car when my husband left the car unlocked at the home store. :(
After all the rain we had everything looks so lush in the garden. I want to get outside today and take some pictures of the flowers so I have something to look at this winter.
I watched on PBS and then ordered the DVD of Craft in America. I have seen it twice and it still inspires me. The second show had a jewelry artist from Philadelphia that was asking herself hard questions about where her work should now be taking her. She walked around the vacant lots in her neighborhood and where many would see trash and weeds she found beauty and created gorgeous jewelry from found objects, weed flowers, empty drug vials. Sounds strange but they were absolutely amazing. If you get a chance to see this series on your local PBS channel I highly recommend it.
Have a peaceful day! :)Bea
