So, Where Are We Now? 🌴

A low-flung sun on one of the last days of the year.

It’s the shortest day of the year, give or take a few hours, and when you wake up at one-ish and the light is only 2 percent skim milk anyway, it’s even shorter.

🌴 December 21, 2014

I’m writing this part of the entry from the safe vantage point of the future – it’s actually a few weeks later and there’s been a lot of activity behind the scenes. I would like to chronicle some of it here. For example, I made several of these Warming Scarves, which I hope I’ve perfected via trial and error.

One of the scarves I made this year as gifts.

Next, I made a Creeper scarf for my little grandson and a Caterpillow for my little granddaughter. Special presents for my West Coast children and grandchildren are still in the construction stage, so they have to stay secret, for now. I realize that some of these projects might look a little unpolished, but they have secret functions that redeem their homespuney ways.

As I gather my wits and adjust to the idea of full-time sewing if I so desire, I will make a nice tutorial for my treasures that will go into the Cheaper and Better site. It’s all coming together now: The skills I’m learning from remembering how to sew have given me new insight into my computer and writing tasks.

Plus, it’s so relaxing and fun to play with all the cute things I’ve collected over the years. My goal is to give away everything I have while I’m here and able. If I sense that a family member likes something of mine, I try to make them take it back to their own home when they leave.

I can’t believe I made all these things, and more. It’s been a long, long time and I’m going to chronicle it all, both here on the website and in a book that Bill has suggested we write together called The Future Theater Companion Guide to Some of the Back Stories. Something like that – we’ll refine the title along with the concept.

So now I will say goodbye to 2014, a good solid year. πŸ”
