a little catch up post

can't believe it is already nearly the middle of January!

seems like January seemed to just be a continuation of December's challenges

I have been working on some things however

this piece I had created for my daughter and son in law, for instance
at Thanksgiving I had added a halo over the head of the dog that represented the dog that is no longer with them

in the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, they acquired a new dog

being big supporters of adopting animals from the humane society, we're not real sure what exactly this small dog's heritage is, but he sure is cute

so the piece came home with me for the addition of the new dog

and I made some other changes to the piece as well

changing out the very "Christmas" themed band of red and green wreaths and trees and reindeer that was the inside border for a pale blue with snowflakes that will mean the piece is now a "winter" theme that she can display until spring if she wants to

this was one of the first pieces of "wall art" I did, and I consider it to be a primitive, but it does have a certain charm

so now I'm working on a piece that I hope to finish in time to enter it in a show titled "Sacred Threads"

the deadline is March 9 and I'm not entirely sure how part of this is going to be constructed, but I'm going to try to get it done

I spent quite a bit of time yesterday on it while I was icing my back -- seems like little aches and pains are just going to be something I must deal with

looks like I'll be working on it quite a bit today too --- we woke up to the winter wonderland this morning, and we're just not going out in this weather!
