Using up the leftovers.

 Yesterday I used up all the pieces I had left from
from making flowers for the FibR show.
Four little art quilts
 Everything is now priced and tagged.
Ready to go. We carried everything upstairs
so it is ready to load on Sunday afternoon.
 It feels good to be ready.
 I will be glad when it is all set up.
Well I am off to the studio to make something
MORE.
Never enough.

Hot and muggy

Just remember today when it reaches 90 degrees
that winter is coming again.
Go find a beach and relax in the warmth.
Chill out.
Enjoy the heat while you can.
 Or find a shady tree and sit under its branches.
Live for the moment.
Enjoy life.
This day will not happen again.

Up close and personal

 Love my day lilies.
They brighten the summer days.
Too bad the mosquito's are so bad.
I have to shot and run.
 I have one more painting to do and then I 
think I will take a couple of weeks off.
I love sunflowers so this should be fun.
Off to the studio.

Painting the dunes.

 I have 5 finished paintings so far.
I haven"t painted for over a year.
A little rusty.
 The water scenes are fine but
 the crane pic is not so fine.
 Water is like snow in painting.
You can make it look good easily.
But when it comes to trees I do not have the patience.
Two more to finish and than next week I will make
labels for the show and make sure everything
has a means of hanging.

Especially sunsets and water.

Closing in on the finish.


I am finally getting close to being finished.
I may be able to wrap things up by the 29th.
Working on my cushions for the chairs.
Today I will make the cover for the rustic bench.
 

 I may even have some time to make some more
flowers for the FibR show which is happening the
same time as Chairs.
Leslie took this awesome photo of the sun setting
on Lake Michigan. We all love that lake.
My son proposed to his wife at the lake shore.
Have a great day and I will retreat to the studio for the day.

Coming soon CHAIRS

 Slow but sure the show is coming together.
I WILL be glad to move on to something else.
Maybe a little time off of the sewing machine.
Wind swept sunset  just needs a sleeve and binding.
 I need to finish the grasses and  binding on the one.
I have started putting the small quilts on canvases
or putting slats in the back. I have about 12
small quilts. I have decided to keep about 5 for
Christmas gifts. I will sow them but put NFS on
them.  I look at them and think about how one of my
 kids would enjoy them. Sometimes they just talk
to me.
