February Update

Hello! More flower pictures for you! This is the amaryllis that Pearl leant us when she went away for Christmas. One of these days, I am going to give it back to her :)

We haven't been up to much around here. We had a couple of really nice sunny days. Not warm like the West Coast, but nice and bright, with all the snow.

So that was ridiculously nice. The consensus seems to be that this winter has been unusually dark. Other than that, time has been passing quietly. I got some work done in the shop. Here's a new marquetry pic (something a little different):

And I finally finished the other two of these:

Along with some other stuff. Jai has been playing around a bit between making tops, but it seems like he has been working a lot this week. Probably because of the live show on Saturday night, which meant he didn't get any days off.

Stephen's new CNC machine arrived yesterday, and I went up there to work on a table I'm making, and to check it out. It's going to take a while to get it all set up, but it's going to be very cool. While I was driving home, they were talking about a house that burned down in Hampton, which is right on my route. So I stopped to check it out. They said it was under renovation at the time, and no one was hurt, but it's pretty incredible to see. I felt kind of weird taking pictures of it, but it was so incredible with the icicles all over it. I guess the water they used to put it out froze all over it and the branches in front, it was actually that cold.

I'd never seen anything like it.

Anyway, I think dinner is almost done. Jai is cooking up Grandma's Chickpea Curry recipe, and it smells delicious. Bye for now...

I recently found you via etsy - I did a review of your meditation bench on my blog about Canadian Home Decor. I love your work and found your blog really interesting! I want to see more pictures of your house, it looks really beautiful. I really want to see pictures of your finished kitchen! I can't believe you did it all yourself.

I'm envious of you - my husband and I have often talked about moving to the east coast and I dream about being a silversmith full time. Good for you for pursuing your dreams!
