Over the weekend I finished needling those brooches I've been working on, and cut and sanded the wood bases too. These 7 pieces will make their appearance in my shop today at 3pm CST.
As always, they tell stories about places I'd like to be, places I've been, places where I imagine one could find some quiet peace. You might have noticed there are no man-made structures in my pieces. That's on purpose. There might be fields and meadows, but you won't see barns or red balloons. Not in these pieces, anyway. (some other time, maybe) These are all very quiet.
Some tell of moonlit swims, some of trips to the mountains with my father. Some remind me of flying on cliffs above Lake Superior (remind me to tell you of my "flying" habit one day). Others of quiet places I've only dreamed of.
If these move you, or if you know someone who might enjoy them, I'd be so grateful if you'd spread the word.
I do have a number of other pieces started, I'm still in the mood for making brooches, AND I have babysitting help this week so you just might see another update before too long.
Thanks everyone! Have a great start to the week.
