This past week has been one of those where I feel like I'm doing ten impossible things before breakfast. I guess I'm exaggerating, it's more like one difficult thing before breakfast each day, but still. Breakfast often comes late, or hurried, or today it was both. Monday started with a call that the person we've been caregiving for had another siezure, Tuesday I had a deposition to go to and couldn't eat before due to anxiety. Wednesday I drove a friend to a coffee/social thing, although I got some coffee and fruit there and people were very nice even though I didn't really belong at the gathering. Today we had to run downtown to pay a bill, and got breakfast late between that and going to our friend Heidi's studio to learn wet felting.

Obviously I ate some of it first, but how else was I supposed to cut out a little gold heart from the eggs, right? Anyway, this is supposed to be a gold heart with a bacon infinity sign going through it, for the Heart of Gold starship drive logo. Balancing little pieces of bacon into curved shapes is awkward when there are businessmen having lunch in the next booth.

I forgot to take a photo of the felt fibers when they were first laid down dry, but here's the wet matted mess I started out with early on. I picked a kind of greenish blend, which Bridgie called 'cthulu green'. I think she's hoping to use it to make more of these guys to sell in our Etsy shop.
Before we left though, I took a photo of this, which is the bathroom right across the hall from Heidi's studio space. She says everyone who sees it comments about the giant gears in the bathroom, but seriously, how awesome is this? What are they from? Who put them there? How did they move them?
Anyway, there's my artistic adventures for the day. The felting lesson stuff is a bonus because what I made with breakfast was so pathetic...
