Wire, Words, and Octopus in the Studio

September brought a fun set of projects and another bit of adventure for me. And my surprising side project is ready for launch day!

The last couple of years have brought a slower, contemplation of my creativity in my favorite metals materials but has flooded back with the enjoyment of creating my stitched sculptures again. A bit more each day and it feels good to be productive again. The pieces will look lovely in a flowering garden come spring time.

At least once per week, I go to a nearby coffee shop with good outdoor seating. It happens to be a Starbucks and I couldn’t resist their seasonal offering of a yummy pumpkin scone. Warmed just right with pumpkin seeds and a wee bit of drippy frosting on top makes it a not too sweet treat. I hope they have them again next week :)

October 8th is World Octopus Day! Each Thursday, my friends and I get together for a Skype Sketch session to stay connected and keep our creative skills sharp. My favorite creature to sketch are octopuses and I’m ready for Octopus Day this coming Thursday, are you?
