Focus on Life week 42
Mmm How to deal with this, I'm a self employed gallery owner and jewellery artist.... So some days I make beads..
In the summer I always start and end the day by putting out open flags... this season of the year it's by chance or appointment!
|These beads were made for someone... well I needed 9 think there's 22 or 23 there (my hearts are free form no mold! other than what grows on them when I forget them in a bucket of dirty water)|
Some days I make components
occasionally I even make them into pieces of jewellery!
|Enamelled components for a gallery show in SK|
(I cut out the cow skulls using a blanking mold and my hydraulic press!) Enamelled pinwheels made into earrings... yes they do spin!
Most days in October I pick grapes
|OK the grape vine picture is from Sept when the grapes were green... but it's pouring rain today so ... Big picture is processing grapes to make a orange cranberry pecan loaf using 'concord' grapes...I probably bake 3 times a year...|
Most evenings I knit
One evening this week some of the resident deers wandered past during supper
|She had two fawns earlier in the summer but one seems to be gone, also she has been running around on three legs most of the summer... still is so I'm not sure how she'll do this winter!|
And I read.... Most evenings in the hot tub...
