Even though snow threatens the opening tomorrow, I cannot be troubled. I have so much joy from finishing this project. After the opening, I'll post photos of the finished pieces. I learned a lot from the various processes used. I want to keep doing projects like these, at least until I perfect my technique.
I'm also flattered that a number of people have shared that they plan to attend tomorrow's opening. This community really is filled with folks who are generally positive, encouraging and supportive.
Check back around noon tomorrow to see if we end up postponing the opening!
