I did accomplish a great deal yesterday, although much of it was the type of stuff that I can’t really show pictures of. I spent most of the morning and part of the afternoon editing the photographs that are going to be included with my Snowflake Damask project for the magazine. I shipped out the project already, and I must say I really hated to see that one go. I probably won’t see it back until sometime next spring.
I did get to spend some time to do some painting, although not quite as much as I would have liked (what else is new?) I think it was past 3pm when I finally sat down at the table to work on the Halloween ornaments. But that is OK. It was nice to get back at them.
I got to finish up two addition ornaments in both the keys and the plain ornaments. I also base coated the third pair, but I was just getting too tired and decided to call it a night. Today is a new day and with only four and a half to go, I have aspirations of perhaps finishing up all 12 by tonight. We’ll see . . .
Here is a picture of the additions that I finished yesterday:
Not the best picture, I know. It is dreary and rainy here and pretty dark. I am going to have some nice presentation pictures for the pattern packet and the site when I am finished with everything. I just call these snapshots because they are taken without much thought or fussing to give you an idea of where I am at.
Besides painting today, I have some wood orders to cut. I’ll probably get that done in the morning and then I can settle in and paint. I am really happy that many of the painters are coming to me for wood kits, as it is a nice break and gives me a bit of time at the saw in between everything else.
Yes. It is busy!
With that said, I had better get to it. By the time I post and clean out my email that came in overnight it will be a decent enough hour to get to the saw. It’s going to be a good day.
I wish you all a wonderful and creative day as well. It’s hard to believe it is Wednesday already, but with the short week because of the holiday, things seem to move a bit more quickly.
It is muggy here but it seems like it is cooling off. Yesterday was one of those clammy days that aren’t very comfortable. Damp. warm. sticky. I can’t wait until the crispness of autumn arrives. favorite time of year.
Have a good day.
