You may recall awhile back I wrote about wanting that big box of crayons – so many wonderful colors! I finally bought myself an even bigger box awhile back and I hide them. My grandson loves to color too and he has the box I wanted as a child but my big box, that’s for me and me alone – for now. I just love looking at them.
On snow – we’ve had a lot of it this winter and I love it. What does it say about me that I just realize how important color is and yet I love the whiteness that winter brings? Perhaps it’s the bright that I love, not necessarily the color. Then again, I add color to the snow scenes I paint so I must see it.
And stitching – I’m still doing it. I signed up for another Craftsy class, this time on art quilting. The first assignment was to use circles, squares and triangles for your design – abstract or floral. I did a small flower – don’t like it a bit – it’s dull.
She didn’t assign but did have a pattern for Winken and Blinken, I thought about Winken Blinken and Nod and started it… a few variations to make it mine. This one isn’t done. It’s going to stay hanging where I can see it for awhile, until I see what needs to happen next.
And then there are all those pieces discharged fabric, two of them got some embroidery added and became mug rugs.
