On request, here is a picture of one of the legs next to two acorns so that the size is clear.

Hmm, this appears too cool on the blog.  I like the warm original better (the photo was taken with sunset light coming through smoke).

These are some of the bits that consumed my day.

This is the beginning of a little shrine I started this evening after I got tired of making bug legs (below).  The figure was a gift  from the always generous kats in the belfry, who just opened her etsy shop.

Rock and metal are so beautiful together.  I did not work with either today, instead I ate and drank with a large group of friends in the garden.  I need to remember to have more work ready next time a bunch of people are here, it might distract from the chaos in my workroom.

Tomorrow, besides pretending to be a lumberjack for a few hours I will be carving a compartment out of a book for an assemblage.  First I’ll go to the library – I need a good audio book for that kind of job.

porthole

I am out of tiny old bolts, I’m going to have to keep an eye out for more or age some new ones.

I almost never accept commissions because I have no sense of time.  I can’t tell if 20 minutes or an hour has passed, so often I set a timer for an hour repeatedly while I’m working to remind myself to look at the clock.  There are things I can ask other people, like how long it will take to get somewhere, but I forget to add time for signing in, finding a seat, etc.  To be minimally organized I keep a list of tasks and constantly revise it to move priorities to the top without writing in times or dates.  When I try to estimate what I can get done, say in the two hours before I am going to leave, I am generally way too optimistic, and find myself in the middle of something when I should be walking out the door.  Very frustrating, but I work around it so others don’t have to, and only accept requests from a couple people who know me well.
