I have not done any metal work since last June when the shop elf and I moved to Texas. In the beginning, it was because all my tools and equipment were packed but once it all arrived in September I had no desire to work on any of my pieces that were in progress.
I don't know if I have over worked my muse or not; all I know is that it is absent or has taken a much needed a vacation but for the time being I am in a muse free zone.
Thus, until the time when my muse returns I shall be posting occasionally about my other creative outlets.
