The cold weather and snow lined streets have meant most of my walks have been within the mill, which is okay as there are plenty of stairs and much to look at. Pompeii stained glass moved in when the top floors became studios and have placed this piece in the perfect spot. There are many new faces in the building and each floor is like a separate neighborhood, not unlike boroughs around a big city. And should you leave your “neighborhood” and move up one level it is as if you have moved to a different subway line instead of one floor up. Funny how that is, but paths tend not to cross that often as schedules change with moves. This weekend is open studios again and it seems the snowbanks have already secured many of the parking spots, but I expect we will still have a good crowd. People want to get out and about in these weeks before the spring yard work begins, but don’t want to shovel any more snow. And so I am off to frame up some piece in preparation for Saturday, wagons ho!
