Chapter 6 Check-In

So another week gone! Time to check-in again. This past week, I missed doing morning pages one morning, and that was today. I also slept in past my usual 5 a.m. wake-up. I'm woefully behind on doing all the chapter tasks as well. I'm usually picking up stones, so that wasn't much of a stretch. And I did bake something...more than once. I cleaned my sewing space, and then messed it up again. I'm in the midst of playing with my new passion--felted wool.
Besides lasagne, the extreme cold also sent me baking muffins, potatoes, and a pork roast. The weather finally improved, but only after freezing our laundry room, and a couple of the motel bathrooms. Fortunately it all thawed out without major incident or repair.

I've managed to stay fairly productive, despite the arthritis in my hands rebelling against the cold. No actual artist date this week again. I feel that just taking the time to work with my "stuff" is enough. Tucumcari is rather lean in terms of places for artist dates, even though we have two dollar stores. Perhaps in the coming week, I'll get out of town a bit. I've got to finish some projects for Christmas.

Hope everyone will still keep in touch via their blogs, so we don't lose our newly found momentum. Posted by Picasa

Way to go, Hilda, I love the little snowman! Get some of those gloves with the fingertips cut out of them.

Another nice wool project going there, Girlfriend! I've been kind of a lump since coming home from Indian Market - took a nap, called my dad. Now I'm thinking about watching Off the Map, while I try to get the binding done on one of these quilts.

Cool snowman! Maybe your artists dates could be spending the time doing something fun and different that you wouldn't ordinarily take a couple hours out of your week to do? On my first time through the exercises, I once spent an entire day knitting a hat ... it was a lovely artist date.

I think just working in my craft (I have a hard time calling it art) is enough of an artist date, and at this time of year, I have all the time in the world. I want to learn to knit! Of course I want to start off making socks right off the bat, and I've heard they aren't that easy.

Working on a craft project is a fine artist date! The snowman is really cute!
