Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

Happy Solstice!

It's the dark of the year, and we are having rain, not snow. Well, I'll have snow if I have to make it myself!

This gray-looking photo (even with the flash) perfectly reflects the gray, rainy day we've had.

I put up nine strings of snowflakes. They are light enough that they don't unravel the thread, and they turn gently in the air currents in the room, so that which ones I can see, and which ones are making shadows on the wall, are constantly changing.

When the room lights are off, and the Christmas tree lights are on, they make moving colored snowflake shadows.

Today was our son's first day of Christmas vacation. As a present, I said I'd pick up his toys and not nag at him to help. He said, sitting happily in a chair and reading, that this was a great present, and even better than more toys. !! I'll have to remember that!
