Friday fragments

in which our plucky heroine has a productive week nonetheless...

Workroom time happened this week for both enameling and scribal arts (illumination/calligraphy). This Red Hart/Goutte de Crystal pendant is completed, repaired, reset and ready to be transported to my client. I also completed a rush order champleve component needed by my colleague Mr Dawson. There will be some more enameling in the next week, as I tackle a few of the other remaining custom orders.

Eye weirdness continues unabated. The combination of flashing and the new related floater sometimes takes the form of my thinking I am seeing a spider in my peripheral vision. Not okay. Trying to remember that it is not actually in the bright world, but inside my eyeball.

Seems like my various wardrobe efforts continue to ebb and flow. Most recently my desire to sew has been completely overtaken by knitting Log Cabin Mitts, which are proving incredibly useful. This does not, however, get me any closer to completing my SWAP sewing plans. It might be prudent to at least sew up the pinafore and dress that are already cut out, in hopes that the missing mojo will get a little bit of a kick-start. Can seven more garments (pinafore, dress, four tops and a poncho) be made between now and the end of April? The tops and the dress will be particularly welcome...

Every time I listen to this, I hear something different...


Grateful: My neighbor Tracy helped me plant the baby apple tree, which had been waiting patiently for a spot. Before my eye rebelled, I had started digging a planting spot near the lovage along the front walkway, and since the near constant flashing was worse in the sunshine, that project had been on hold for several days... I am much relieved that the second tree baby is now in the ground, and hope that it will take hold and continue to grow.
