Sunshine and Chocolate

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

Two of my favorite things in the world. It is still cold, but the landscape is brilliant with clear air and winter sunshine. It streams in the windows and takes away the chill. Maggie loves to find sunshine and just bask in it.


The shrink wrapped windows seem to be working. Maggie and I are quite comfy in the basement.

I have been working on my chocolate piece for the Twelve X Twelve challenge. It is due at the end of this month. I am having fun with this. Sorry, I can’t share too much, but I am taking photos and will share the process later. I will show you this, which may make it into the final piece. I call it chocolate shibori.


I have also been working on my homework for the Better Art by Design class. I had lots of fun tonight cutting up paper and making small compositions.

Thanks for all the positive comments about flipping the latest construction piece. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. I am going to keep the latest configuration.

My car is in the shop, getting repaired from the accident I had last month. I won’t have it back until Friday so Mr C and I are sharing the Jeep.
