These are my plans for the rest of the year:
On 5th December I've booked a table at a craft fair. It's my first time in years and the very first time showing textile jewellery. The next ten days are going to be extra busy making. Everything I finish (including the above trio of dark and moody timekeepers) I'm saving for the event. The shop will be closed on the 5th and afterwards I'll be adding all the new and unsold.
And then quite soon, on 13th December, I'm leaving for an annual winter visit to my hometown of a hundred spires. I'll be back around the New Year.
There's a list of ideas I wanted to try out (an oyster and seaweed amulet bag; a book of colour - a surprising palette from a single dyestuff; 'Fruition' - a dark series about fruit and seeds; mechanical wings - a falconer's bracelet...) but the time of 2010 is running out. These things will spill over to 2011.
