So much to do, but...it's SPRING!
A common complaint, I'm sure. I have a lot of outdoor chores to do today--mulching, soap for the aphids, digging the amendments into the new bed along Fool's Creek. That's what I call the awful concrete drainage monstrosity they put in between our house and the neighbor's--Fool's Creek. Long story short; it took them four months and who-knows-how-much money to install a hazardous 100 ft concrete trough when it could have taken them a month and 1/4 of the money to bury a culvert. Sorry. I'm still bitter about it. But I have a small fence along it (hoping to keep from falling in the trough and cracking my head) upon which I will plant honeysuckle and bittersweet.
But all that's the outside work, and there is so much going on inside! Or should be. I have a new commission--do you remember last year's ornament order? Same lady wants little cupid-type angels this year, and I'm glad she contacted me early. Should be interesting, as all 14 of them need to be different, in face and aspect, but the same in wing and size.
I've gotten busy with drawing plans for punch needle, wool applique and embroidery projects. Mostly I'm covering small boxes and pin keeps for the upcoming Folk Art Fair in June. I'll definitely have my dolls there, but as this is not a doll show, I will take it as a chance to make some other things, and hope for the best. Besides, I love the fiber arts, and have enjoyed the different directions I'm going lately.
I finally finished the penny rug I designed for our coffee table. The projects I'll make for the folk art fair will be much smaller, but still satisfying. Cheers, y'all.
