Hey, I fixed this one!
It has been two years since I posted and the only reason  for the absence is health.   The migraines have become chronic daily disturbances, and I have been in and out of hospitals and to and from doctors trying to curtail them.  This is the excuse for the lack of art posts. However, I am starting a new blog, "There's No Magic Bullet." to discuss chronic pain. So, if you want to talk art--stay here.  If you want to talk life (which includes art), check the new blog out.  It is still in its fetal stages. In fact, I have somehow managed to erase my "About Me" section on the art blog while settting up the other one.  My apologies, and hopefullly, I will become better at managing and designing the blog as time goes by.

Finally Back to Work

So, after two months of migraines I am back to work.  Just finishing a new bracelet and I find that as I get near the end of one project I am always thinking of the next five or so I want to start and then I have to really push myself to finish the piece I am actually working on and not drop it to start on another project.  I can't tell you how many unfinished pieces I have--probably almost as many as I have finished sitting in my studio.  But I am committed to finishing things now, since I will be showing my work at Newton Open Studios this May.  Come and see all the art that Newton has to offer.

Long Time No Speak .... Again

I just cannot believe is is already the end of January and I have not blogged since September!  So here is my New Year's resolution --only a month late, but no matter-- I will blog more consistently.  I recently taught a class on stitching and embellishing fabric and I have been trying to explore some new jewelry designs as well.  My pictures are not great right now, as I need to get the pieces to the photographer, but I thought I would keep you all updated.
