Welcome to feather creations where I blog about different projects I've undertaken. They won't always be pretty but I'm hoping that they will be interesting and maybe thought provoking. Comments are always welcome. However, if you're moved to criticize, please make it constructive. I'm always open to learning new ideas and skills.

Marking Time


I've spent a lot of time trying to figure out if anything stood out for me in February ... and nothing does. It was just a month - 4 weeks, 7 days each - nothing special! The most that can be said for it is that I marked off all the physio and chiropractic appointments I had to go to to for my hip. It was a very boring, uninteresting and nothing month. So that's what I made - a boring, uninteresting piece that was just about marking time!!

Now that it's done I can move on to March - I have two ideas for that or maybe it's one for March and one for April. That could be it. Anyway, I should have them both finished before the end of May which would bring me right up to date. Yeah!!!!

When I grow up ...


I'm going to be .... at 51 I still haven't figured that one out yet. Firstly, I'm still waiting for that "magic moment" when I'll know for sure that "I'm grown up" and secondly as I grow and change what I want to "be" also grows and changes. So it's hardly any wonder to me that time spent in January was thinking about career paths and what my next choice should be. My mother was always amazed by variety in my resume - it is a bit daunting - however, I've often thought I wanted to be a "renaissance" woman when I grow up so may that's still influencing my thought processes. Anyway, January is about "Opportunities" and trying to figure out which way to go. This time I'll keep my day job until I'm a little more solid about which way to go before deciding I want a change - new direction for me.

More importantly, I've figured out the design for February. I need to back the piece and do the edging. Should be able to post it in a few days and then start work on March. In the meantime, I'm gathering ideas for April.

Next is to get caught up on a piece for fSA which was due last month but should be completed before our next gathering ---- I hope!

Cheers,
