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 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.

fabric and a hawk

I finally chose my fabrics for the color palette challenge. Except for the white and black, I'm using Vicki's hand dyes. I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to make but I'm leaning towards a cover for my embroidery machine.
We spent a good part of the morning watching this guy eat his breakfast.
I'm taking some online classes from Carla Sonheim and this is one of her sidewalk photos. You try and find a picture within the cracks. I saw this little guy. Along with learning to draw, I'm spending time each day learning's a challenge!

Hope you have a wonderful day.....thanks for stopping by. :)
