I Get Creative
This is the first week in many months I attended less than a handful of Zoom meetings. What a treat! It gives me oodles of free time to wallow in the studio. What did I do with the time? Push forward on Cautiously Optimistic, of course. I am officially more than half way through.
Remember when Cautiously Optimistic consisted of one nearly all black block in the upper left hand corner? Now, I add a block, combine blocks and attach one row to the last row, and voila, all sorts of twists turns and contrast. Even though I have a general idea of where this piece is heading, thanks to the blue print I created, how it will actually turn out is a delightful adventure filled with surprises.
Dana gets creative
I am not the only one who has been creative this week. My husband, Dana, came across a new DIY craze to build Cat Castles from recycled boxes. He decided our cat, Lola, absolutely needed one of her own. Lola is a thermopile. She loves to choose a comfy chair in the east side of our home for a long morning nap. Then as the sun starts to set she moves to the west side to recline in a pool of sunshine on the foyer carpet. Of course, she loves to sleep hidden away, too, under beds, or other dark spaces when she needs to feel safe.
Lola’s Lair is a work in progress. By next week Dana will paint shingles on the roof. My suggestion is he add some ivy fines creeping up the walls. What do you recommend he do? There are 4 blank walls to have fun with.
I am linking up with Nina Marie’s Off the Wall Fridays.
