I've made a list and I'm slowly crossing off the items. Do you do that? Sometimes, I get so wrapped up in worrying about remembering every little thing I want to accomplish in a week, that I keep circulating it all through my head in a continuous loop. Making a list stops that process and I can relax.
The second shanty piece that I'm calling Shanties in Blue was on the list.
After getting out with my friend, Alma, on our usual circuit on our snowshoes this morning, I had lunch and tackled a couple of things on the list-- made a phone call, got a package ready to mail, (yes, the giveaway), and then I moved into the studio.
I got the backing, the binding, and the label on --just need to hand sew it back.
It measures 9 1/4" by 11 3/4". I quite enjoy doing these. I like the size, the colors in the winter landscape, the small, sometimes wonky buildings and the idea that they go away and come back the next year in a different configuration. More next year.
I feel productive. Now I can take a break before I run to the grocery store and the post office.
