These are some books I'd like to make quilts from. The Whimsical Quilts has a flamingo quilt that I'm dying to make.
Remember, I warned you this would be random. We're having severe storms tomorrow and I may not get my blog fix. I'm too tired to make a lot of sense so you're stuck with this.
This is a tote I made for a contest. The chefs are machine embroidery designs from Ytmar at Retroboulevard.
She's my most favorite machine embroidery designer ever. I had to make the cake myself. It's my favorite kind, no calories.
Just in case you ever wanted to know what I look like, this is me. With contacts and long hair. And reading glasses on top of my head. Bifocals have simplified my life now. Would you LOOK at those circles under my eyes.....I've always had allergy eyes. My boys gave me the grey hair. One side is John's, the other is Sam's. I don't know what the spots are on my shirt - probably cake. The high-calorie kind.
My mom oil paints. She's my favorite oil painter. She did this landscape years ago, and I want it very much. My aunt bought it from her, dang it.
But she did paint me this flamingo for my birthday last year. It looks much better in person. If anyone has any tricks for photographing oil paintings, pass them on. I need them.
Tomorrow I'm going to spend the day drawing. At least that's the plan. But considering that was my plan all week, and it hasn't happened yet, who knows. I hope I get to check in at your blogs tomorrow - cuz I'll miss you fiercely if I can't.
