heater love

As you may know I love winter but I have to admit I'm not looking forward to the unheated studio tomorrow. At least it will be warmer in there than outside.... but I think I may have to run out and buy a heater just to take the edge off the icy chill.
Jethro has taken to evenings in front of the heater and I have dug out Spot's old basket. He loves rolling around in it and young Ben popped some toys in it the other day saying 'Befro for later' (this was after he had chased Jethro under the couch and attempted to coax him out with a jingle ball).
It was an at-home-day today. I got to have vanilla slice from Woodend and cups of tea with Ramona, do an over the phone interview thingy, get an application sorted and in the mail and, most important of all, do the washing. But I am feeling strangely bored and very unmotivated at the moment and I have barely been in the studio over the last few weeks and feel very out of whack when I am there. It's like 'writer's block' or 'blank page' when I do get there, things to do but very unsettled and I flit from one thing to another, never quite settling.
Tonight I MUST make clocks! There are empty hooks on the clock wall in the shop! Dreadfully slack of me! But first I think I need to fill my tummy with corn chowder- heating from the inside out.

Oh and before I forget! Check the Water and Lace post over at Yarnbombing!
