Art has been on my mind a lot, but there's been a ton of everything on my plate that's keeping me from doing anything substantive. I have been crocheting, though, it's something easy that I can take with me, and do in front of the t.v. without a big mess or too much distraction. I found a lovely free pattern for house slippers and I've made several pairs. One for me and a purple pair for That Crystal Wolf! Now I'm working on a stripey pair to probably sell. I'm enjoying them. I also dug out the yarn to start a "corner to corner" lapghan. It's a technique that's all the rage in my Facebook crocheting group, and it looks gorgeous. I hope I'm up to the task!
Our new baby girl kitty is still in hiding, in my studio. We've tried to coax her out, but no luck - at least during the day when we're up and moving. When she's more used to the smells and the sounds I know she'll emerge and be a part of the family. We just have to be patient. Our Late Great Tuxedo boy, Zorro, hid in the basement for *months*. We genuinely thought he'd gotten trapped and died because we saw no activity at all from him. However, one day he appeared and settled in, and went on to become our son's faithful playmate. So, there is plenty of hope for our little Precious - it's only been two days, after all.
And speaking of the studio, SO. MUCH. WORK. to do in there. I'll get to work in there more as the heat dies away and fall comes on. I have plans!
