I now have orders for just over 20 Painted Hankie Scarves. On Sunday I answered the emails and made my list. I don’t know how long it will take me to make 20 scarves. I imagine somewhere between two and three weeks. That includes packing them up and mailing them out.
In the afternoon I went with Jon to a couple of doctors’ appointments. He wrote about them on his blog.
One was to have a cast made of his foot so he could have a brace made to hopefully straighten his step. I was curious to see how it would be done.
I was imagining buckets of plaster and plaster-soaked gauze. But the process was much simpler than that. A thin fiberglass cast was wrapped around his foot and calf. It dried quickly, then was cut off still holding the shape.
By the time we got home, it was dark enough for the hens to be in the coop. When we pulled into the driveway, the sheep and donkeys were at the gate, their thirteen pairs of eyes glowing in the headlights of the car.
I did get to the Mansion this morning for my monthly art class and also painted some more hankies for my scarves. Tomorrow I’ll start sewing them together.
Bonnie, the Activities Director at the Mansion helped me roll our slabs of clay. I brought a box of things like sticks, buttons, and shells to draw with and press into the clay to create designs. Once they are dry, they can be painted.
