What began as a sort of dreary and sometimes rainy day ended with some happy sunshine and a bit of a blue sky. Our winter here has been very mild so far and I keep thinking to myself, “Okay, if you’re not going to show me some seriously pretty, incredibly peaceful, landscape-altering snow, then let’s get on with spring”.
I mean today we could have easily entertained outside in flip flops and short sleeve shirts. And that’s very weird considering this is January 27. I’m not complaining mind you because while the snow could be very beautiful to look at and delightful to play in, the cold and I cannot agree on what is an appropriate temperature. (I’m always in favor of one that is warmer.)
Today in the studio, I had a visitor.
He kept me company while I worked on this little guy.
He (or she) is a small ted created from two previous patterns. I wanted to see how he would turn out. When the head turned out okay, I kept going.
It’s not an efficient method of operation – one limb at a time, but each advance made me want to keep going until he was completed. And now he is and measures in at 4½” tall.
Thus I have created a new problem for myself – I want to make another but then I have other bears I want to make too. Such is the dilemma – decisions, decisions.
