I am having the darnedest time settling in to work. The holidays preempted several weeks of work, as did getting Clara ready to go to Florence for the semester, as did dealing with the contractor. Then I got sick. After three weeks, I am 99.9% better, but construction is now in full swing and my brother-in-law Clem is here for nine days . . . My life is off kilter. When I have free time I am so discombobulated that I don't do anything.
I am trying to get back on track, now that there is an open pathway to my studio, albeit a very icy one. So here is the one small piece I have to show for the month of January. The colorful wools, of course, were hand-dyed by my sister Barb (Thimblefolk on etsy). The black is as-is. I used a technique called beading for the dots. Let's see how long it takes me to finish the edges . . .
