Long Weekend

Had a lovely Memorial Day weekend..still working here and there to keep up. Also made some time to tend to family graves, do a bit of gardening, and to sit in the yard eating veggie hot dogs. So happy to see the first hummingbird of the season visit our honeysuckle vine.
Three guest dogs kept us and the cats company, I love that I get to spend time with visiting animals through my husband's business: Walk-About Animal Care Services~

Tonight I added a sneak preview of "The White Rose", an iridescent stained glass version of my Tudor Rose necklace to the main page of the site...more details later!

Busy, Busy.

Working on custom orders from the customer appreciation sale has me a little behind at the moment as they all came in at once! Very happy to have such patient and understanding patrons, wish I was faster at doing what I do.

Working long hours has me appreciating times in my studio I usually don't see. The light in the early morning is so very different than the way everything looks at night.

A heatwave a little early for New England Spring had me setting up the air conditioner for emergency cooling! Gets very hot up here in the attic :)

Re-arranged some frames on the wall, and added a bit more layers to the window draping to hide the ugly machine at night. I love it now, looks like a tiny dramatic stage setting.
