Labor Day Weekend is for laboring.....
hard to believe that this time last year I was painting rooms in a house we no longer live in
this year's painting project was to paint the front porch and the trim around the back door -- both of which were showing a little weathering, and I wanted to get them protected before the bad weather sets in
we've been hauling in more boxes this weekend too -- I'm getting close to being able to park in the garage again!
next month we have a show and boutique, and they were still looking for folks to put together banners when I was at the last meeting
this was something low stress, quick and fun
and I have decided that I will be doing this big piece with just the line drawings -- no color -- because I feel that gives the best "ghostly" impression
this week I hope to get back to working on this piece
the next thing to do is finish the edges
it was suggested to me that because the whole look of these was weathered and rustic that having an irregular edge would be in character to the piece
and I agree
this was a whole new thing for me to try -- and I'm really pleased with it
I don't have another beading project started, or even planned right now, but I'm sure I'll come up with something soon
Mr Cute wants to be a Ninja Turtle for Halloween, so we've started working on a costume --
the pattern calls for this to be made out of felt -- gramma thinks corduroy is more interesting, and a little fabric paint more interesting still -- and yesterday his mama brought me some glow in the dark paint to add to this -- a really good thing for the evening of Trick of Treating!
something different and fun
we'll see how much work we get done this week!
