A new project and too much alone time…

My husband left Thursday afternoon for a two week trip overseas. I’ve been looking forward to a little alone time, but two days into the two weeks has got me thinking I might miss him sooner than I thought.
Over the last ten months, my closest friends have all moved away (as in “out of State”) I’ve never been a big time social butterfly, but since they’ve left I find that making new friends is surprisingly hard.
This time alone might be exactly what I need…..a chance to go out and do something. Alone.

On a lighter note…
I’ve started another stained glass piece.
Thanks to Tristan for giving me permission to use his photo!

  1. It’s cool to see your inspiration picture for your stained glass sketch. I was wondering how you designed your pieces. I live in the Orlando area and I have trouble meeting people too. It’s a weird place. Looks like I definitely need to check out the Art Center.

    • Thanks for the comment Beth. I don’t really have a technique for making patterns yet. I just sized the photo in photoshop, made it into grayscale and bumped up the contrast so the lines would stand out more.Then I cut and pasted sections into 8×10 pieces so I could print them on my home printer, then taped them together and traced.
      Phew. It sounds super confusing now that I read that back to myself. 🙂
      I see you’re into fibers, I’ve been trying to teach myself to crochet…..I think I might have the basic stitches down, but reading patterns just scares me! You should start a stitch-and-bitch group!
