I can hardly believe how much time has lapsed since my last post. Right after I had urgent eye surgery. I had another hole in my retina repaired -- this was the second time but this time in my other eye. I had to be careful for 3 weeks after -- no stooping, hanging my head down, bending over or lifting anything more than 5 lbs -- which meant I couldn't really do much. I did manage to rest up which was a good thing. Right afterwards, however, I ended up with an intense pain in my arm -- mainly my elbow. Today I am finally feeling a bit more back to normal but babying that arm so as to not aggravate it any more than I have to. I am discovering that aging really sucks and wish I could trade a few body parts in for some new ones!
So I did manage to finish off some items which will be delivered to the Artisan Market in Sorrento and Shear FX Hair Studio in Chase later this week -- that is as long as the weather cooperates. We have had some huge torrential rain storms resulting in major flooding in our part of Canada.
Where I live (interior BC) is fine, however the flooding destroyed all of the highways between us and the coast. This means that there is only essential travel to the coast and supplies are being transported through at a snail's pace. Canada Post put our area on a yellow alert which means that the mail service will be very sporadic and extremely slow for a long time. So if you are planning on ordering anything from my online store, please allow an extra week or so for delivery.
So here are some Christmas sweater themed pieces I created using more silkscreens from Tonja Lenderman. I really love the sweater designs which were fun to create with. All of these pieces are on a snap so they can be interchanged.
