I know, I've been gone a long time. With the holiday retail era finally slowing down, I can find time to spend with my shuttles. I'm working on the snowflakes for my coworkers and a few "special" requests from friends. Some I have to wait for the resin to finish curing, others are awaiting stiffening. I'm always grateful to make some lace for those around me, but this year it seems I've received more requests than I can handle. Part of me is happy, because it seems handmade items are more appreciated this year. The part that is sad, is because time is one currency I need more of.
