Preparing for Spring

Posted on January 27, 2017 at 2:45 PM

Good Morning Everyone!

It has been quite a mild January so far, but today it is very cold. The cat is a little annoyed with me. He seems to be convinced that I am responsible for this turn in the weather. He steps outside into the swirling snow, turns back and looks up at me as if to say, "What is going on here? Why in the world don't you turn up the heat?" He simply cannot accept the reality of winter. He shakes off his paws and stalks indignantly back into the house heading straight for his cozy bed.

It's time for me to snuggle up to the heat of my torch and kiln. I am ready to turn my thoughts to springtime. Brian has brought me a bouquet to tulips to help set the mood. They look lovely and cheerful sitting in a white and blue pottery vase on my work station.

I am working with fresh, mossy spring green shades this week. I am making glass beads this morning and this afternoon I will put some wooden beads into a dye bath. Next week I'll be moving on to pastel pink. I'll also be working on a neutral colour group involving paper white, clear glass, crystal, pearl, grey and silver.

I haven't decided on my other colours yet. I have a number of ideas percolating. I like to decide as I roll along. I'll keep you posted.

Speaking of keeping you posted, to those of you on my mailing list, I will be sending out hard copies of my bi-annual newsletter early in March. Around that same time I will be posting my 2016 Spring/Summer schedule here on my website under my "Coming Events" tab.

Talk soon!

Rachel Joy.
