Watercoloring flowers

This is one of several watercolored panels I did today using a stamp from Simply Simon Stamps September card kit. I stamped and embossed the image first, then used a variety of watercolor pens and crayons. I plan to trim the panels and mount on card stock to make greeting cards.

Squirrels, falling leaves and sewing

Well hello there stranger! Yeah, long time no hear, or should I say see or read or blog or ??? Whatever the correct word is, we’ll go with it! I apparently stopped blogging a very long time ago and just decided to give it another try. Problem is that this blogger platform is not the least bit iPhone friendly because it doesn’t do the word wrap thing and I’m a bit impatient with having to manually scroll right and left to read what I’ve written. Ok, rant over ....

Any suggestions for a free app that interacts with Blogger?

I love this time of year when the squirrels are busy and the leaves are gorgeous and falling down to provide a carpet of color in my back yard. I just heard that the reason squirrels are constantly digging is they forget where they’ve buried their nuts. Some of us can certainly understand that, right? Yeah, I thought so! Like that’s why I keep buying fabric is because I can’t find that special piece I bought last month or last year and since I found the perfect pattern I just HAVE to sew it now! Speaking of sewing, I just spent a couple of days helping my 47 year old Goddaughter convert a couple of vintage aprons into bib aprons. What fun! Teaching one-on-one is not my forte but all was well and we had a great time.

Most of my sewing lately has been clothing for myself, grandsons or daughter. I’ve also been sewing quilt blocks  from The Splendid Sampler. If I can add pictures I’ll share a few things I’ve been making.

Ok so I couldn’t get to current pictures, so you might just get to see an Afghan partially done.
Till later!

October 12 Take 12 Project for Ella Publishing

October 12 pt1, originally uploaded by lilypadsis.

This is part one of my pictures for this Month's Take 12 Project. I haven't found a 12 or 6 picture template on any of the free apps for my iPad yet, so just have 10 pics to share this month. The challenge was to show the changing seasons and Fall is one of my favorite seasons, so this was fun. I need to get outside to capture the fall colors, but wanted to show more personal things here.

My back yard in June

My Album 2-004, originally uploaded by lilypadsis.

I made two album pages for the Ella Publishing Take 12 project this month because I had so many pictures that I loved. This page shows a bit of the whimsy that decorates my yard.
