A Productive Day

This afternoon I started some mixed media pieces.  Several weeks back my wetcanvas buddy, Li Newton, posted a Conch Cottage from Spider Key.  I had an opportunity to visit the Key with a group of artists several years back so I dug out my sketch book from that time and here are three of the cottages I sketched.  These are monotypes but will end up as mixed media pieces.  I plan to add collage elements to them.

First, the Captain’s Cottage…

Just one of the cottages…

And finally, The Maid’s Cottage

Before the afternoon session I was stitching.

This morning I worked on a project I started over a year ago…. a quilt/blanket.  I started it as part of a class.  When it was done I decided it need to be bigger since it was going to be a blanket for our bed.  I put it aside but recently got back to it.  Here is the whole thing so far…
