This and That

Isn't this a pretty picture.

Here's the story...

DH found a dead butterfly in the pretty...

He staged this picture using the little lovely! I think it is a winner...


BTW I guess I haven't been around lately. sorry about that, but I "Have" been busy.

I am taking a journal class from so I have been busy doing that..I was late staring the class so I am behind the others.
I needed some TAP (transfer artist paper) and I thought that was what I was ordering but when I tried what I got, it is not working very well ..
I ordered some from Interweave, so I am looking forward to receiving that so I can continuw with my journal.
Meanwhile I am working on some more Healing Spirits.
It is our long week-end here in Ontario .It is a civic holiday which takes place the 1st Monday in August...
Seems long week ends mean very little when one is retired!!
That's all for now, Hope to have something of interest for you faithful followers soon...
Hope everyone is having a lovely summer.

Beautiful Sky

Icouldn't believe the sky this evening. It cast a yellow hue far and wide...Unfortunately
the pictures does not really show that..

It was a full rainbow beautiful. I took the picture from the deck so I couldn't get the wide shot...
PS.... Are the overhead wires a hint that I live in a small town?!?!?

Postcards I have Made

Here are some of the Fabric Postcards I have made. A lot of them I have sold and are in Private Collections. Others I have traded.
I hope to be making more soon as I do have some pending obligations and I would like to put some in my Etsy Shop..
This is one of my favorite Art Forms.
I wish I could invent a 48 hour day!
I hope you enjoyed seeing them.

Another Doll

Meet Mrs Noteworthy, my latest creation...... She is little ( 5" ) a stump doll(free standing) She wears a dress with a music note pattern, pearl earrings and necklace, along with another pendant she always wears which was a gift from one of her music students. Her tote and hat are hand crocheted in a pretty shade of blue(her favorite) and over her shoulders she wears a hand felted wool stole. Those old bones need warmth even on the sunniest summer day.

She will be off to lunch on Saturday with some dear friends.I just know she will be the centre of attention.... She loves that. She will shower us with wonderful stories of her days at the Music Academy and of the time she spent with the New York Symphony where she played violin. Everyone is amazed that she still plays even tho she just celebrated her 98th birthday. Her fingers are knarled and stiff but she can still make those strings sing!

Mrs. Noteworthy will be a nice addition to my friend's Music Room.I know she will enjoy being there...
