And also, although not yet on the web, we got our first shipment of Encaustic Waxes today. I know I said I was going to be playing with them in January - I failed of course but I have got my stuff out in readiness. The trouble is, I have a bigger list of must-dos than time permits. I am going to a retreat in Albany in March so there will be no excuse that week.
This is one of the pieces I am working on but held up by the activities above. it is a page - or rather one side of the page of a book I am making. I am working on a layer of the cotton wadding which we sell. I have cut a piece to size and pulled it into two pieces and am working on one piece for front and one for back. It is lovely to work on as well. Shan't show the cover yet but it is coming on nicely.
Back to that packaging, weighing and cutting stuff. But I am also sanctimoniously swimming ever morning and will be up to 20 laps next week.
