thank you a million for this custom order! They'll be in the mail to you tomorrow (which is already tomorrow, how ironic!)
In other creative news I got into some old school sawing today, while listening to Norah Jones...
These will be listed tomorrow along with some bigger feathers (can you imagine bigger?) in the form of a lariat...this artist also dove back into riveting (i love to rivet!)...and forming, oh and all of this is cold forged (no solder, no chemicals, just me at one bench-one station), music playing and hammering away. Am I sore? Yes! Was it worth it? Yes!
on a personal note:
Tomorrow I finally get to see the back doctor, after all this waiting, it may not seem long, but it felt so long of a wait between onset, xray, MRI and tomorrow~ some answers and solutions.
I cannot wait to find out how much physical therapy can help.
My brain is filled with questions like - am I sitting right? Should I really never fold my legs straight under myself (so I was instructed as a small child...to help with the clicking hips...partially dislocated at birth and discovered by my stepmother a few years later.) Should I stop doing my stupid human trick? (YES!) I will no longer be able to perform my amazing feat (get it?) where I turn my legs backwards at the hips down to the feet.
I'm so giddy, I want to hear about the types of exercises to avoid, and the ones that will strengthen my back. I crave my time at the gym.
(polar opposite of this giddyness I'm fearful for what my limitations may dictate to me for future metalsmithing)<---that's the Barney Fife in me...
I did sneak a peek at the CD I'm to hand over to my doctor tomorrow, a CD of my back. It's sort of cool to see into your own body. I think I know what the diagnosis will be...and I think Google has given us way too much information for voyers like me who look for a lay-persons diagnosis.
So, there you have it, I've been laying low, resting and today I got my ya-ya's out by making (sawing) many copper feathers for you! :-)
for that feeling you get when you are in the zone
