It is feeling very much like December....busy, with special requests on scarves, holiday festivities, and even some snow finally. Not much time for writing on this blog if I really want to get done what I must. This delightful chess set was made by Abby Dreyer, whom we featured for Art Walk on Friday at Artisans Hand. So great to meet Abby who is delightful herself and the crowd swelled with ceramic artists come to see Abby. I made cookies and set up the event...must admit, I'm glad it is over. Yesterday Bruce and I were treated to an evening at the Library, full on festivity, delicious food treats and an entertaining talk by Chris Bohjalian, Vermont novelist, whose work I enjoy.
Today I awoke early to get silks painted before we headed up north through snow to Bruce's land. As we drove north the snow lessened and the fields became golden again, not snow covered. The land welcomed us with sunshine and we dragged floor panels into the woods...not ready to put up the yurt yet, but we did construct a primitive structure, a first shelter 8x12 with walls of woven branches and pine boughs, stuffed some with leaves, tarp covered. Amazing to feel so warm in it when the winds blew and snow swirled. I was feeling sorry not to have brought my camera, but Bruce consoled me..."Take it with your eyes." Made us proud.
