snow and more snow

Sun just came out, although we are plowed in with a couple of feet from the plow, blocking our driveway. I'm not in any hurry to go anywhere, although my husband can't stand that he is not in the office. Before I try to get some work done, I thought I'd post a picture or two. First, here is the whole piece of cloth - 60" that I showed a fragment of the other day. I used some traditional wood blocks and copper tjaps on it, as well as an antique potato masher and that wonderful, rusty round thing with the holes that probably fell off of somebody's muffler. Have no idea what it is.

Next, the picture of me with red highlights. I asked my husband to take this picture this morning, and he STILL hasn't noticed either the haircut (and trust me, I looked like an overgrown tree yesterday morning) or the color change. Then again, maybe it isn't that noticeable...it certainly can't hold a candle to the 16 different colors of red that Glamourous Gabrielle has in her locks. But then again, I wasn't striving for this -- it was a surprise. Looking at this picture reminds me that while I was standing in line for 15 min. at the post office the other day, the woman behind me was wondering how many of our tax dollars go to print and distribute the pile of FBI's most wanted posters that hang in every post office in the United States. She was also wondering how many people ever look through that pile -- and how many most wanteds are caught because somebody in line for 15 minutes at the post office looked through them and recognized one. Well, at least the 15 min. went fast while I was having this conversation.

Time to make the donuts.

You look marvelous, dahling. Not quite matching a cosmo but the red is fabu. Won't bother to comment on the fabric since I am running out of superlatives about your work and fear I am headed toward hyperbole.

Rayna said...

Ah, well, Gabrielle. When we get together, we can compare reds. And the fabric is all I have to show these days - can't do a thing with it. Yet.
