week 47,48,49 in my “this is where i am from” year long project:
Well there has been an interruption hasn’t there – Weeks 47, 48 and 49 will be the weeks that never were. Hopefully I’ll back on track next week. I hurt my back on the 18th and I tried to ignore that because I really, really didn’t have the time or patience for my back to be hurt. That made things much, much worse until everything came to a grinding halt on the 20th. I’m nearly better now and dealing with the work overload mess this interruption has caused. This experience has gotten my attention. I’ve been working at a ridiculous pace for too long. I need to change things in a big way going forward. I’ll share that with you as I figure it out – right now it is 0% figured out.
And I I wanted to show you these – a couple weeks ago I posted a drawing of a clothespin ballerina ornament I made as a child – I made the drawing from memory – but my sister found the ballerina! It was packed away with family Christmas treasures along with another I made that I had forgotten about.
I think my dad must have made the ballerina arms for me and the soldier’s arms are wooden coffee stirrers (do they still make those?) – maybe you know someone little who would like to make these.
