What a year of making it has been. The brooches really helped the count add up, with mosaics in second place, and stitched textiles way behind.
I want to thank everyone who has watched the year’s counting up, and offered their encouragement. Counting up has definitely played an important role in keeping me going, helped me finish things up when I really wanted to just start something new, and motivated me to make things I am happy to “blob” about.
So here we go, the count up of 2011…..
Kelly, Lisa and Laurie were here for a day of mosaic making. We had a wonderful time that included a comfortable silence while concentrating, laughing and a little weeping. All three of my friends here today have lost their mother during 2010. Hearts are raw, memories are treasured…. and all of us have our moments.
a grid pattern….maybe 2011 will be the year of the grid in all its variations. A basket weave pattern is a grid….this one is off kilter. That does happen. Off a little, but still balanced. A place to start.
Jackie’s, Lisa’s, Kelly’s and Laurie’s works in progress too…..
I have heard that what you do on January 1st is a good indicator of what your year will be like….If my year is filled with lots of mosaics, family and friends, and thrift store shopping too….I have much to look forward to in 2011.
