5 Things Friday

If you live on the east coast, then you know that it’s been a seriously dreary week.  My Wordless Wednesday post was of bright blue skies since I needed a reminder that they existed behind all of the rain/clouds/fog which have dominated this week.  This week’s five things were certainly influenced by the weather.

1. It rained so much that my morning walk turned into an obstacle course of avoiding puddles (especially that deceptively deep one which offers the potential for sinking and being splashed by passing cars) and the slugs that seem to be multiplying like crazy.

Even the geese were confused by the rain- they thought that the tennis courts were a great spot to set up for the day.

2. I got some work done on a new coaster design while proctoring the state test (MCAS) for 6 hours this week.  I think I want to felt them before selling, but I haven’t decided for sure.  Do you have a preference?

3. I listed two new items on my Etsy shop.  First, the felted bowl I wrote about Monday.  Then, the hemp basket I described yesterday.  I have some bright coasters and placemats ready too, those would have been good for this dreary week!

4. Since I was stuck inside, I worked on updating this blog.   The layout is new since last week, I really like the green, plus it’s nice and clean.  And I added the “Etsy Shop” page.  It’s up at the top next to “About.”  Go ahead, read all about me, and then check out the awesome products I have for sale.  It took a bit of finagling to make the page work, but I’m happy enough with it.

5. I was very sad to learn that Pom discontinued their glass containers for tea.  They claim it’s the greener choice but I’m just not buying it.  I was really looking forward to making a nice vase from one.  Instead, I bought a random plastic bottle that was skinny enough to fit in the entrelac piece I’d made.  Last night I cut the top off (after my brilliant insight to use a rubberband to make sure my circle would be level) and this evening I hope to finish the cover for this upcycled vase.

That’s about it for this week.  What have you accomplished over the past 7 days?

Again, thanks to Allison for the “5 Things Friday” theme.
