many fingers in many pies


I've been very busy lately and will be for the next couple of weeks and so my reading, commenting, and posting has been a little hit or miss and will probably continue to be for a while.



We're heading into the city in a little while to do two small etching jobs. Also I've been cutting hundreds of little bitty pieces of glass for 100 fused glass crosses that the church ordered (the irony is not lost on me, an unbeliever).



And I've been working on some sun catcher/wind chime thingeys. Not sure what I'm going to do with them.

Coming up, we have a workshop this weekend and then next week, I'll be working in the store for 3 days and then the last day of the workshop the following weekend.

And this coming Friday I have a preliminary presentation to give for to the garden club and library here for a possible sculpture for the library gifted by the garden club.

Here's a few shots from the yard:

  4. Good to be busy. I am busy, too. This weekend will be the official end of the season and I am waiting for the first editing of my book to be done and looking fo the right illustrator. More to this than you would think, but it is exciting!

  5. Busy is good! And I'm seeing some of the nature colors, the greens and golds at first glance, in your cross work :)

  6. Those flowers are beautiful. I am not familiar with either.

    It's good you are busy. I love the thingies, look forward to seeing what you do with them.

  7. I loved the photos, and your work is beautiful, but the thought of taking an implement of death and torture and representing it as a happy looking objet d'art of it would strike me as strange even if I were a believer. On the other hand, I guess I would prefer that to the gory Catholic crucifixes that I've so often seen.

  13. Way to go--everything looks great. As a collector of crosses, those little bitty pieces of glass crosses are calling to me, perhaps not god, but to me they call.

    The wind chime thineys look great also. Maybe you could make wind chimes of them. Sorry. It's late.

    Have a good week and take care!

  15. The windcatcher chimes are beautiful. I love the vibrant colors in your work. The crosses look like they might test your patience, though.

  18. After that long drought, the land still comes back. Wow.

    I love glass wind chimes. It's the best sound.

    They are beautiful, too.

    Oh the crosses - they will be gorgeous, they ARE gorgeous. Art is not always a matter of faith.

  19. Wow- your yard is simply sublime this time of year!
    Good luck with all the projects--you have your work cut out for you. Love the sun catchers! :)

  20. I sure do understand having trouble keeping up with blog activities. Your crosses are lovely and you wear irony well. ;)

  21. Those crosses are pretty nifty. If my folks were still alive, they'd love one.

    Both flowers are unknown to me. They're beauties, though. Thanks for introducing me to them.
