Nest Feathers and Twine - Formally Artist's Block Studio

The things that make a house a home and the stuff that holds is all together.

Years ago I started this blog with a mindset and goals that I have found have changed direction over time. I am excited to say that this blog has a new name.....Nest Feathers and Twine. I hope you come by and visit often. Feel free to get comfortable and kick off your shoes and join me on this journey of metamorphosis.

too tired to title this post....

this arty girl is one pooped puppy. 

days on end of going...going...going until i drop. 

i am so very grateful the beast (vertigo) has been fairly well behaved for the last several days.  it is still there with every step, but thankfully i have been able to run at a fairly good pace.

we have almost all of the scarves unbanded, tied, and stitched...which is way more work than putting it all in and we are getting ready to wash the first few batches.  i can't wait for you to see what they look like.  we had a couple turn out kind of pukey looking, but lots of neat ones...it is so hard to not keep them all.

i have been trying to think ahead to future projects and gathering bits of fabric here and there to dye, especially since we are up to eyeballs it seems in dye. 

yesterday i took lots of photos and added about 13 new items to the shop, i have lots more to add and planning for that to happen tomorrow...uh....later today.  i think the skeetos managed to find just about every nook and cranny they could to snack on me while outside messing with dye and taking those photos, and the yard work i did today.

 my legs look diseased from all the red bumpy spots from the skeeto bites.  this spinny girl thought she would take advantage of being able to bend over and not fall on her face and shave her legs in the shower....sorry if that is a tmi.....shaving my legs can be a luxury with vertigo.  one look  at the sea of spots and i thought that is a disaster, and one of those flesh eating infections  waiting to happen...running a series of sharp blades up and over these bumps and lumps.   oh well, people will notice the varicose veins and bug bites  before the hair i am sure...*snort*    besides maybe my porcupine-y like leg hairs will impail the nasty little boogers  when they land on me tomorrow while i am outside!

finally got the hubs to put about 50 nails in the top support board of our privacy fence after of week of honey when you a chance could you.....and before 5 when the crabby nosey neighbor on the other side is awake.  i learned that them there is fightin' words to a man....lordy....i can not tell you how many times i prayed that our crabby nosey neighbor did not hear the racket.   i am a plan ahead do ahead kinda person...he is a when i need it i will do it fly by the seat of his pants kinda guy and it is partly why i married him and partly why i could just.....ugh it drives me crazy sometimes!  hopefully in about a week you will see the reason for the nails.   one of those things i miss being able to do myself...the vertigo messes with my sense of where i am in the world, and well...i would kinda like to keep my thumbs and fingers functional for the arty stuff. 

so...i am usually a more visual show n tell girl and not so chatty.  maybe it is mosquito venom making me chatty...*snort*.  ok.  so that was probably funnier in my head. 

so i will share some photos and then i am off to try to go to sleep. 








just a wee bit of the photos i took yesterday....you will have to pop on over to the etsy shop and see a few more of the goodies.



another heart rock Max found for me yesterday to add to my collection. 

nighty night all....smooches.
