End of a Tangerine Day

Busy day with the Studio Artists today. I got the first couple of stages done of my new collage. I used parts of a real photograph and then lots of wonderful scrapbook papers.

It's not finished but I like the composition and when it's done I plan to scan it onto fabric.

Linda finished hers.
And, Barbara said she had a blast working on her whimsical piece.

It's so relaxing to work in the studio with friends. Everybody working on their piece, muttering to themselves and occasionally, bringing up some topic for discussion. 

Thick fog today, all day long. The warm temperatures and the melting snow just make for a foggy result.
Unfortunately, these warmer temperatures are going to be history by this weekend. We drop back down to the mid and low 20's.  I suspect we'll be dealing with icy roads next.
It surprised me today when I was driving to drop off Murphy and then to pick him up again, how many cars I saw, on the road without their headlights on. At times the fog was so thick I couldn't see the traffic light until I was right up next to it.

Riley is spending the night tonight.  She wanted to call Curren, in Boston, to tell him goodnight and GO PACK.
I'm not sure what Curren made of that conversation but it think it's cute that a three year old and a two year old have established a phone connection.

I'm washing my hands like crazy lately. They have been talking about the flu now being in every state and reaching epidemic status. I got the flu shot this year. I hope it works on this year's bug.

Zeus and I have FINALLY stopped coughing. Whatever bug we shared started, for me on Thanksgiving day and even with antibiotics still hung around until after the holidays.

I really don't want to get sick again. I'm finally getting caught up on chores.

  1. It's great to be creative with friends. I love all the collages. I had a go at one recently too and have used it to help me plan a textile piece. I hope you escape the flu, there's nothing worse.

    I think tangerine is the perfect color for January. :)
