Bits and pieces of the project I've been working on. Process...progress. Slow though. I'm pretty excited about finally using the reclaimed leather that I've been holding onto for about five years. And those are wee squares of plywood.
I've been thinking of gathering together some ladies that are local friends for a weekly afternoon creative time. Basically, just getting together once a week in the afternoon to make things...independent or collaborative...sewing, painting, cooking, whatever. I think sometimes I miss the camaraderie of being in college working in the print studio or the constructive criticism of a sculpture crit. This would be more relaxed and skill level would vary...but there is something to be said about chatting while making. And, maybe it'll get my nose out of the book a bit to make more things. Do you do anything like this? If so, what has been successful or unsuccessful?
We picked some apples today off the apple tree...the ones that the deer couldn't reach in their hind legs. It's an old tree that doesn't get watered, so the apples aren't so juicy...they'll be made into applesauce tomorrow. I can almost smell the cinnamon.
