I'm breathing deeply here as the winter rhythm has kicked in. The frost is on the front door to the veranda but no heavy patterning yet! Freezing cold though. Bright blue sky. The stove is featuring flickering flames as the Rooster and I take turns leaning into its heat! I will be handing him some of his handy dandy bale wire to keep my snowman upright at the veranda door as apparently he has attacked my man a couple of times as he's made his pre dawn run in the mornings! ;^(
Slow and steady has been the big purge. I've been frowning at that big file cabinet. I believe this is the week! I'm maintaining my 'just get rid of stuff already' mood. grrr! lol
As I work through the plans for individual rooms I am focusing on the guest room this week. I am in the closet and editing the amount of table cloths, doilies, and mismatched bedding. This room will become the grand kiddies sleep over room! It'll store their extra clothes, toys and bedding.
I also want my design wall back up. It is a large white flannel sheet on a six feet long wooden dowel. I'd thought to suspend it from two hooks from the ceiling in my playroom but I'm questioning the wisdom of that. It will be a pain to roll up every time I want my work counter and it will block light if I angle it to the side. Most importantly it will be in jeopardy every time I spray something for the mixed media play times. :(
Mixed media is pretty much instant gratification as far as making art goes for me. The fibre art and quilt aspect is a slower process. But I need to get that momentum built into my schedule as I believe there is a place for both my luvs- fibre and paper.
The altered book is wrapping up this week so I am looking forward to my next on line class.
I had indulged in a few supply sprees this month so I had to sit on the side lines for all the sales this past weekend. Next year I will have to remember Black Friday and Cyber Monday. :O
I am also getting a hankering for some shortbread! I might just get motivated to bake!
