After a summer of record setting rain, where would you choose to be?
I think you can imagine what I chose this weekend and there is some serious R&R going on here at the cabin. Yes, I have a stack of work I should be doing in the shop and studio and Derek has a stack of papers to grade, but the glorious Autumn weather forced us to hike, BBQ, enjoy cocktails on the deck and catch up on a stack of good reading in the mountain sun -and Daddy-O even patched the roof while I "supervised." Even though the Spenard Farmers Market is over, I was hard at it all week with new work. The week was spent finalizing some new quilted wall art patterns I’ve been working on this year. A talented group of quilters are in the process of reviewing my new work and I hope to finalize the pattern production this month.
The plasma cutter and welder gets plugged in on Monday though. It was fun to take a break from steel and turn to fabric but it ended up forcing me to get an eye appointment… Yes, I needed to get reading glasses –arrrgh! It was getting harder and harder to see threading that damn needle and I was tired of the wasted energy of mis-threads. This was a hard appointment for me to make as “ol Eagle Eye” as Daddy-O affectionately calls me has finally succumbed to one of the natural affects of young age. Fortunately, I don't need my new glasses for welding!
