Sunday Art

In my search for something to draw I found "Flying Hands". My goal is to paint this on the wall in my bedroom. I  decided to draw it first, using graphite pencils, colored pencils and charcoal.

Back to "Normal"

My hand is back to normal. In my few days of resting I had some new ideas. I'm now working on more note cards and small gift bags for the upcoming holiday. I found the smaller panels of Shirt Tales fabric that mom had given me. They are actually supposed to be sewn as Christmas ornaments, but I just couldn't do it. So they are now going on drawstring bags. Twelve lucky people will be seeing these soon!

Project put on hold.

Yesterday we enjoyed the company of lots of family & friends. We had our early Thanksgiving dinner full of nontraditional food, games for the kids, honoring the veterans in our family & the hug line. The hug line still cracks me up! This is the second year my mom has made everyone stand in a line so all of us get a hug from everyone there. It reminds me of the video's I've seen of people on the side of the road with signs for free hugs. It's crazy, people get embarrassed but everyone gets a good laugh & lots of love! : )

While I was loading the car to head home the trunk decided not to stay open & came down on my hand. It's now swollen and hard to grasp things. So my projects are put on hold until I heal.

This is a picture of the baby dragonfly bag I was working on.

Found standing by the frog tank. 
The two frogs Prince & Charming 
are doing quite well in there little home. They still fight when it's feeding time, but that's normal.
