Itching for Completion

An evening at home, all to myself, and I had planned to continue with constructing some grey felt storage boxes. I started cutting the pieces & then hit some sort of mental block. It needs to get done. I want to get this done. But here I am, time a-plenty and not getting it done.

I'm thinking about felt, feeling itchy & overwarm and searching for images of Joseph Beuy's work with grey felt. Distractions.
Pictures here, here, here, and here

  1. I think of Andrei Rublev when I think of itchy grey wool felt:

    Felted from getting rained on, snowed on, and being worn all the time, and 1400s Russia. Ah, but what a beautiful movie...

    But your boxes will be delightful and practical and no one will have to suffer through wearing them 24-7 in all kinds of horrible weather.

    Up with grey felt boxes!
