there actually has been quite a bit of work getting done this week
it's amazing how that dark outline makes the flowers pop up from the surface
the deadline for this piece is in July, and it will hang as part of an exhibit with my other class mates
and while all of that is in process, I'm thinking about some other pieces too
I have collected this assortment of paintings over the past few years from my dear friend in California
finally got them into a frame!
and now the hang in the family room gallery -- love seeing them every day
and Mr Cute put the green bean seeds in the trench at the end of the planter box -- I still need to get a trellis put up for those, but the most of the work is done
(so of course we are forecast to have SNOW in the next two days, so I'll be out covering all of those little plants with clay pots and newspaper)
I don't know what it is, but I love the texture and the colors
while the DH was cutting the slat that goes in the back to hang it from, he got his left thumb too close to the still spinning table saw blade
off to the ER we went, and he now has 8 stitches in the end of his thumb --- OUCH!!
in the future I will not be allowing him to rip 2x3s to make slats --- the ER visit is much more expensive than buying a piece of wood that is the right size already! not to mention the whole injury issue
I'm starting to work on a map to do a quilted piece of his face --- a project for after a couple of others that are on the design wall, but there will be one!
