After a couple of weeks of milder weather, and many weeks without fresh snow...it's snowing at last out here on the Central Alberta prairie. It's a lovely thing. Somehow, a steady snowfall gives one the impression that one has all the time in the world, because it's so miserable out that there's no point in trying to do anything outside one's cozy nest.
As a result, today's been a computer-focused day. I didn't even go out for the mail...
I've been catching up with correspondence and SAQA business (I'm Co-Rep for Alberta, part of SAQA's Western Canada Region).
And...I did the first draft of my tax return (in Canada the deadline is April 30), which involved making sure I had most of my receipts (a few are due in the next few weeks) and had prepared a statement of my artwork-based income and expenses for 2014.
The 'artsy-craftsy' side wasn't completely neglected, though. Yesterday marked fourteen months (!) for my Mark on the Body project, so the piece was duly photographed and the blog updated before I did today's stitching.
My friend Kathie Briggs nominated me for the Facebook Artists' Challenge, which brought a dilemma. To fulfill the challenge, one is supposed to nominate another artist daily, as well as post 3 photos of artwork each day for five days! Whoa! Not all of my artist friends are on FB, and many of the ones who are have already been nominated...so...I decided to post my work daily but nominate no-one. I've had no objections so I'm sticking to that resolve!
Oh...and today is my 1299th blog post! This means that when I publish on Sunday...that drawing for lace yarn for my knitting readers...it will also be Post 1,300. Who'd'a thunk it?
Tonight? Some hand-quilting after supper. With a video. Maybe DMTV or The Quilt Show or PBS' Craft in America...
Tomorrow? Borders on that medallion.
Sunday brings February, and a new month with Elizabeth and the Master Class.
P.S. Linking up with Nina Marie's Off the Wall Friday. Let's see what she's doing today, eh?
