Super Fluff

February 28, 2006

Well, okay. As you continue to read (a few posts down) you’ll notice that this picture and the ones that follow are supposed to be a part of Who needs a corner office? Well, Blogger didn’t do my bidding (bastards!) so everything is slightly backwards.

This is what Ozark Handspun looks like before it is spun. B has been known to call it Muppet Afterbirth, but I think Super Fluff is a little more, um, consumable by the masses. Posted by Picasa

Who needs a corner office?

February 28, 2006

It was 70 degrees today and, even though I had work to do, I couldn’t be kept inside. So, I brought it outside. Yep, Louet, skeiner, loose wool mix, a stereo, some water, and I was set. The boys and I ate lunch outside and then they played and played while I spun for four hours on my deck. Well, of course, I did take a few breaks now and then to climb a tree and play soccer, but you get the idea.

This may become a habit.

AHHHHHHHHHHHH

February 27, 2006

This is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen – certainly one of the most welcome sights, anyhow. I spent the better part of the day today thus far outside with the boys. They played and I hung laundry on the line. I took a little walk around the house and low and behold, I saw this gorgeousness:

CROCUS!!!

It’s coming. Spring is coming. Posted by Picasa

S&V

There is a wonderful artist who is local to Columbia named David Spears. This is one of his pieces. B & I spent so much time studying it and discussing before we finally came up with a color scheme together. He did all the work, though.

The frame on this came as 5 foot lengths of plain wood which he had to sand 3 times and stain 3 times with a special orange stain. The double mat is a new design – cool, eh?

This piece now hangs nicely in the home of K & L, which is also where The Man in Black hangs.

I’m so proud of B – he’s amazing. Posted by Picasa

Man in Black

February 27, 2006

This is the gift that B did for a friend of ours. It’s huge and the photograph doesn’t do it justice. It’s a dark brown burned frame with a double mat – black with white core and gun metal with black core. It’s HUGE and when it was still here at the house, I would stare at it for an hour at a time.

This amazes me about my husband. He can take 2 plain flat sheets of mat board (looks like posterboard but much thicker) and do a million and twelve math equations and end up with something like this. The frame? Started out in 5 foot lengths. More math. More vision. More cutting. He cuts the glass himself, too.

When it’s all said and done, I don’t know what is more art – the print or the mat and frame. Posted by Picasa
