Catching up

Now that I'm a few months into 2012, I've had some time to reflect on the direction I plan to go this year. I've also had time to start catching up on projects left over from 2011. With the first quilt done, I am steadily beginning to see the list be checked off, and so far the body is behaving, allowing me to make good progress. I've even begun to get back to listing things on my store and plan also to start classes again tomorrow, after a full year away from it. It feels so awesome! I can only hope that the progress will continue, because it's the first time, in a long time, I'm starting to feel as if life is settling out. It's amazing.

This little project above is a long overdue post of a project I was able to accomplish while sitting on the couch after surgery last may. It was supposed to be a tote bag originally with three of these little ladies in a row, but I bit off more than I had patience for, and only finished one. After it was finished it got set aside until almost September when I thought it would make a cool ornament as a going away gift for a professor who had brought me two sets of nesting dolls from her trips to Russia. She knew how much I loved them. I hope to be able over the next few months, as I continue this forward progress, to post more posts of the finished projects I'm managing. I hope you'll stick with me as I continue to share my works.

Here's to 2012, a very good year so far!

:( I gave it as a present to one of my professors who had brought me back two of the wooden doll sets from Russia when she went there.
