What a beautiful, bright day. A new year has started and January is always a very busy month. There are birthdays, anniversaries, the business of clearing out last year’s files and setting up new ones and, of course, can’t forget planning new projects. I have eco printed some new scarves but they are waiting to be pressed so they can have their pictures taken.
At the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC), the first Hands On activity of the year was making paper flags. I didn’t have a chance to make them while I was there (we had lots of visitors) but I did bring home a couple of patterns and some paper and finished my project there. I think they are great and couldn’t wait to hang them up.
If I’m very lucky, one of my ‘grocery store’ orchids will bloom more than once. This one is in its third or fourth year and it has bloomed each year. There are still many more buds to open so these lovely flowers will be with me for a while.
