my week







This week I made a sock monkey, knitted socks and started a shawl. I made a mat for my cardinal photos, taken by Kate of Chronicles of a Country Girl. She takes awesome photos and sells them in her etsy shop. I used a piece of stash fabric....one of my gorgeous gradients from Vicki. I painted the rickrack black, it was bright red. I'm very pleased with the project especially since I used things I had here. They are hanging in my kitchen and I'm loving them. I also played with watercolors and a did a bit of drawing. Of course, I was highly entertained by the kitties. Hope you had a great week.
