FLOWERS

There is just something about these Corn flowers that are so intriguing.....the blue is SO blue.

This looks like a Zinnia-kind-of Black- eyed Susan. So pretty.

You know I LOVE these pink daisies! Flowers are such a happy thing; so intricate and wonderful.....I love that they are all different and have their own scent! Oh sweet summer....you are so fleeting!

BIKINI BREAD?

I don't normally show a lot of pictures of the same subject.....except this one today was a riot!!!



We were playing Barbies and when my husband came in from outside, she said, "Grandpa we are playing Barbies, do you want to be Ken?"

She made grandpa a sandwich for lunch, and while he was eating it she played in the kitchen sink....she loves to play in the water.....and off the top of her head she said, "How is your sandwich mister?" Like she was his waiter or something!


We had a big zucchini on the cupboard. She asked, "Is that a bikini?" I had to explain it wasn't a bikini....we later made zucchini bread....she kept laughing and calling it bikini bread. She makes me laugh SO HARD!!!

OLD CHAIR--NEW CHAIR

Let me think about how many times this poor chair has been given a new cover.....4-5 for sure....this one is sad and not very exciting.

This one is more exciting and very happy! I loved this fabric so much that I went back to see if the store had anymore......they do not, but are trying to get some from another store. I want new curtains!

WOMEN IN ART



This is pretty amazing. People's talent just amaze me. AMAZING is the only word I can think of to describe the amount of work (and knowledge) this took.

A NEW ADVENTURE

As if I needed a new adventure! I am taking an online art class from Jane.... a new concept for me. I have been making art journals for awhile now. Mostly they are a creative release for my brain. Here is a page as of late.....
Because this process is a creative release, most of the pages get really over worked and I don't like them in the end...I just like the process of doodling with markers and letting your mind go where it wants. Most of the quilts I design come from doodles in one stage or another so it seems productive! Hello to all my new friends in the art class!
