I keep thinking that I must blog!!!
Clearly, thinking and doing are two very separate actions!!!!
I have been so busy lately
that I barely have time to breathe!!!
Where to start?!!!
Well, after I snow dyed some fabric,
I decided to use this piece....
for the Mosaic Tiles Quilt Along...
(I think there is a shadow from the dried up remains of our hosta plants... but I didn't dare venture out further into the snow!)
I haven't made a pillow for sooooo long and like so many of my projects,
it is not for me,
but rather for a special friend.
Then....I have also been working on Life Book 2014...
learning some wonderful drawing techniques
and having so much fun!
(hmmmm... this one has a copyright on it! How did I do that?)
I also made a birthday post card for my mother's birthday
with machine applique/free motion stitching, stamping,
and a little photo editing printed on fabric...
But I am not always at home!!!
Nature Boy and I went to our local art museum
to see a wonderful exhibit...
Ansel Adams "Early Works"-
There was also an exhibit of "Photo Secession"-
a technique used by photographers at the turn of the 20th century
to make their photographs look like paintings.
I am knitting my second pair of socks...
(these are for Mr. U)
As for the rest of my waking hours....
well, Sugar Baby decided a week ago
to return to public school after 4 1/2 years of homeschooling...
So what have I been doing with my newly acquired
free time (Nature Boy doesn't require too much of my time)???!!
Cleaning the house!!!!
(well it's either spring cleaning a lot late or a little early)
My cousin thinks our house looks Brady Bunch like..
not surprising, since this is a 1970s kitchen that still looks like the 1970s!
I am still going to the gym before the sun rises...
and when I have a minute,
sitting in my clean kitchen
I enjoy watching the birds share meals at the bird feeder...
(handmade by Nature Boy)
and finally, when Mother Nature dumps on us,
I have been known to pick up a shovel...
So you see, I may not have blogged...
but I have managed fill my waking hours with enough stuff to make blogging worthwhile!!!
Now, I'll just take a deep breath and off I go....!
