My very first Christmas card arrived today!
... with a note.
"No posts since September ...!?!"
Oh my ... posting is truly hard for me when
I can not share what I'm painting and stitching
with all of you.
I do post often on Instagram, love the ease
of posting photos of the everyday happenings
in my life on that platform.
I've heard from a few of you that have
wondered where I've been, here is a re-cap
|Gorgeous late summer night here in Florida.|
|The perfect little model.|
I truly wasn't positive I could
still sew like this!
|The next little artist in the family, |
chalk is his present
medium of choice.
|Ginger plants that were just the color |
I needed one day.
Yes ... they'll probably end up
in a design at some point.
|A morning with my brother and sis in law.|
Mimosas, Music by Munn Park Saints,
Of course ...
|Gecko and Dragonfly art blocks.|
|Love a flower show ....|
|I can needlepoint anything!|
I was gifted this super super fine mesh
copper last summer.
It looks like soft fabric until
you catch your finger on it!
But oh! the results!
|This one was snatched up by |
my long time friend and
fellow stitcher/designer Michael Boren.
|'Colors of Autumn'|
|ArtCraft Festival in St Pete and |
Palace Pizza in Lakeland.
Wonderful day of beautiful weather,
amazing art and pizza [gluten free] in
my favorite Lakeland spot.
|My kind of selfie ...|
the bird was an after thought.
Karen Hennessy of Zecca loves
to paint crazy birds and posts
many pictures of the real thing
that speak to moi.
I love to sketch them.
|'Ruth and Harley'|
Hard to see as this is straight out of my
sketchbook. There is a personal push to
draw every day .... no guarantee and no
beating myself up if I don't.
Ruth is my amazing friend and distributor

wall and hung it.
|'Magic and Grace'|

complete feel good piece.
|Anyone who has known me |
'since my beginnings'
