First of all, it snowed on Sunday:
The kitties got this to watch all day:
It’s that time of year here where the summer heat is gone and we’re settling into to the winter cold. That changes what creative projects I am working on, but first I had a major problem last month: My computer died. Normally I recommend that you replace your computer every five years or so. I didn’t follow my own advice and my ten year old hardware stopped accepting software updates. Finally my iMovie just stopped working so I had to get a new computer:
This computer failure stopped me from working on videos like I had wanted to, but now I’m back up and running.
During the warm weather my woodworking has been on saw horses or carts in the backyard. The cold means any woodworking projects have to move into the garage where I have just one electrical outlet … yeah, not enough to power my shop so I’ve hired an electrician to come out and do add some new circuits so I can run my tools and heat the shop area. I hope to get some work done when that is in place.
I’ve been practicing on my new sewing machine and think I’m now ready to move ahead with piecing a wall hanging together.
For my first project I’m working on a bento box pattern that I bought many years ago. It’s all straight sewing so I think I can manage to get it done.
Now that I’m actually working in the sewing area my thoughts are moving to what new furniture I’ll need. This setup isn’t going to work long term:
and finally on the writing front – I’ve not finished anything except the blog posts I’ve been doing. I’ve been spending a lot of time on getting the new house setup and all the business things about moving to a new state. It’s amazing how many details there are to finish up on.
If you need me – I’ll be moving stuff around so the electrician can work.
