Geez, I haven't known what day it is all week long. With all this snow and ice and businesses closed and kids off school - I am betwixt and befuddled.  I think my age is showing, ha, ha.

Been making arty centerpieces for a Chesterfield Arts fundraiser on Saturday night. It was a lot of fun and I had to stop myself because I do have real work to do.
Sadly, I don't get to wear the hats  because they will decorate tables and then be auctioned. I also donated a lovely piece of work to the event, I was a little sad to let it go.

And, I've been working on something arty to wear to the event. I think I mentioned this the other day but Oy vay has it been tough and I am a wee bit obsessed.

I first attempted to paint a sweater (yes, I realize now how stupid this was) and that didn't work out. At the time it seemed like a good idea, like that one time I started painting a rug. Till I realized when a yuck-yuck feeling it had (even with textile medium) and that I would never want to walk on it in bare feet. Yeah, well, same with the sweater, I wouldn't have worn it.

I made an artsy tie for John to wear and it turned out quite well and even looks like a real tie design with a lovely subtle pattern I created using multiple stencils.
I think I might have to make a little video about this, because it is a very cool way to use the stencils.

At any rate, for my own outfit, I have finally(!!)  decided I will wear a painted bangle bracelet with the dress I already have.  It is not quite finished yet, but I will share pictures once John and I are all dressed up tomorrow night.

Have a great weekend everyone!
