I hope you're doing well during this busy season!
I just wanted to share a couple of things I've completed recently.
I made this flag for a local business. It took 12 hours to cut, fuse and sew it,
(It is two sided) and the experience taught me that, although I've done flags in the past,
I no longer want to do this kind of work. A lot of concentrated work!
But I was glad that it came out well.
I also finished this little embroidery.
My friend Barbara had given me some pieces of her beautiful Liberty
of London fabrics, so I made this little girl (with a L of L jumper) for her.
I used colored pencils in addition to hand embroidery. A little cutie!
And last weekend my husband and I went to an open studio event where
we purchased this beautiful stained glass art from an artist friend, Joanne Jolly-Kay.
We hung it in our front window as soon as we got home and it's such a pleasure to
see it every morning when we get up. Love it!
Finally, I got a kick out of our cat Rosie tonight. I was watching the movie
"Winged Migration" when Rosie suddenly plopped herself down in front of
the TV and watched with great attention for twenty minutes! I think the sounds
of the birds caught her attention, then the motion of their flight pulled her in.
I hope that everyone who reads this is having a lovely
holiday season, not too stressful and including some time spent with friends.
I'm looking forward to a Christmas party tomorrow night with my
Arts Collaborative friends and colleagues!!
See you soon!!!
