You have to work at taking a snow day when your work is across the road. There was really no excuse for me getting in the studio at 12noon today, but when you’re self employed, working from home, you sometimes have to learn to take the holidays (and snow days) off, even if you really don’t have to. Of course, when you’re at a job away from your home, you can’t shovel paths in the snow for your donkeys. Discipline for the self employed is a fine line.
So I worked a little later than usual and got 3 potholders done for the Gallery 99 Show which opens next Thursday. Tomorrow I’ll got to the temporary gallery space, ( The front room in The Empire Theater building in Glens Falls) and start preparing the space with Diane. I’ll be doing a demo on Saturday at 5pm. A stitch sketch potholder from sketch… to stitch sketch… to finished potholder.
There are 25 artists in the show and talks (Jon’s is on Friday at 6pm) and music and of course food. It’s the first of many such exhibits with all the art $99 or less. One of the summer exhibits will be in a truck which will be parked in Glens Falls. I can’t wait for that one!
