Assignments and Friends

Assignments - So DH says to me last night as I was looking carefully through Spectrum 18 (one of my happy things to do - LOL) that he wants assignments. "Assignments?" I query in return. "What do you mean? Do you want prompts for writing, a goal for artwork, a media in which to produce something, a deadline to meet? What kind of assignments?" "Yes" was his response - LOL.

From samtyr  If you would like me to assign you seven questions, comment to this post and I will respond.  

1. Have you ever traveled abroad?

  My first trip abroad was to Mexico to visit my brother for the summer.  Absolute heaven.  I've also travelled to the UK twice.  I love to travel, my DH hates to travel...it makes my wanderlust a bit difficult to indulge in.  

2 & 3. What is the easiest/hardest medium for you to work in?

  I love working with glass and enamel.  That includes beads, mosaic, enamel, fused glass.  As much as I love painting and drawing, I'm not nearly as good with that and watercolor is still quite challenging.  

4. Are you allergic to wool?

  I am allergic to the chemicals that the manufacturers put onto their wool.  When I do my own spinning and weaving I don't have any problem with wool at all.  

5. Do you have a favorite quote?

I have two
1- "All you have to decide is what you will do with the time you are given."Gandalf, FotR which I will get tattooed on me eventually, and
2- "Go to the edge of the cliff and jump off.  Build your wings on the way down." - Ray Bradbury

6. Where would you like to retire?

  Minnesota is actually a rather nice state, although I miss my Colorado mountains.  Most importantly, I want to travel all over the world!  

7. What historical event would you like to attend?

  There really isn't anything that I would have wanted to attend at all.  I would much rather have hung out watching some of the great masters paint.
