Crabby Old Lady


That is how I felt today. Cranky. Hungry. Out of sorts. Why? Who knows. Gray skies and rain? Mr C in my studio?

He is finally repairing a hole he made in my studio ceiling back in the day when he and Mark built our new deck. That was almost 2 years ago. I found tools with white wall board dust on some fabric on my cutting table. He didn’t cover my sewing machine with plastic and it got all dusty. This is on the floor and being tracked every where.



I am happy he is getting it done, but it is like my sanctuary and it is being invaded. I stayed on the other side of the room and continued sealing the edges of my 3 x 3s.



My little finished piles are adding up. I only have 3 more months to seal.

Here is my drawing for today – a wrought iron candle stick.

I will be in a better mood tomorrow, I hope.

    I love your 3 x 3’s. It was fun to watch you post them last year but even more fun to see them all grouped together. I am so looking forward to seeing what you do with them all!

    I’m loving these recent photos of your 3x3s. They look so much brighter and lovelier than when they were posted one at a time.

    Trying to be tolerant when you feel anything but that is stress inducing, especially in what my friend Uneena calls “our happy place”. Hangeth in there.

    I know that feeling when someone invades my space. As much as you try to be gracious, the clenched jaw is a dead give away. 🙂 I do love those piles of 3×3’s. Their color is almost as good as sunshine. Wishing you a better day tomorrow.
