Over six feet of snow (68") now, all in the last 17 days. We are all going crazy here in the city, with nowhere to put it, ice dams on roofs, etc.
I've been coping by working on projects and ignoring the weather (a luxury--lucky me).
Here is the same embroidered prototype in which I'm "rehearsing" for my next rug which I started showing yesterday--this is a picture of today's progress. It's coming along. However, I may not have much time to work on it for the next couple of weeks as I have another project that will take precedence over everything until very late in February.
And last Sunday, I finished the Malabrigo Alpaca and Wool hand-dyed yarn "couch throw" that I've been knitting for a while. Just in time for the extremely icy weather about to roll in. And it's STILL snowing outside. And more storms coming. The MBTA is shut down and not running at all tomorrow.
The purple textile behind it is a fabulous hand-knitted shawl my best friend made for me, and underneath it is a punched chair pad I designed and made several years ago.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), long-time meditator and coach, focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
NEXT INTRO TO ZENTANGLE CLASS:
