Some might be wondering about the rant regarding alligators the other day, sorry about that. It was a saying that my father kept on his office wall for as long as I can remember. It is a funny reminder to not get bogged down in the details that may or may not have anything to do with the final goal. The cooperative I am in, Pottery Place Plus, has been remodeling. Construction projects being what they are, there was a certain amount of frustration. Then there is being a group of creative types-everybody has an opinion. About everything. Sometimes you would think we were all theater majors; there is a lot of drama. But it is all done and it is beautiful! Here is my new space there:
So I finally got to work in the studio. Truth be told, my body decided to have some sort of minor but inconvenient stomach ailment I am sure was designed to make me stay home. Sometimes the universe works in not very mysterious ways. If you can't figure it out on your own, it finally says "Knock it off and take a rest!"
This is what I did with my sick day. Matching pendants I have made to lariat scarves is perfect for that kind of day. It isn't physically taxing and does allow ample time for trash TV and naps. It also is a wonderful reminder of summer days spent making the fabric for the lariats and fun at the clay studio Urban Art Co-op making the pendants. These lariats will be taken over to The Pottery Place and sorted out with the ones that are already there so I have a good color range there, for the art fairs and my Etsy shop.
