Life and Other Fantastic Things

This past week was quite busy with many things - but no sewing.  I played a bit more with the faux rocks for artwork - but at this point I have no pictures of them.

So, what did my week consist of that kept me so busy?  Monday I had company and enjoyed time with them.
Tuesday, I shopped for a few new art materials - and honestly did a bit of goofing off before I settled in and did the laundry.  I did buy some art materials, such as the "water putty" for making the rocks and some copper wire that I haven't played with just yet.
Tuesday night, I did volunteer usher duty for the local Performing Arts Center.  The National Tour of The Sound of Music was the show.  It was a wonderful production with a live orchestra.  I was able to stay for the first fifteen minutes or so, but I needed to get home so I didn't see it all.

Wednesday, I opened the water putty and made the first of the faux rocks.  Then, once dry, I painted them.  I also did chores such as getting groceries for Mom and filling up her medicine containers for the week. I filled my own medicine container also.

Thursday - Mom had a medical appointment -and got a new prescription. I spent most of the day with Mom.

Friday was a nice day - I did more volunteer usher duty for a performance of "Moon Mouse" by Lightwire Theater.  This company performed on America's Got Talent also.  The show I worked was a school performance - so imagine a theater full of mostly children -kindergarten to fifth grade- with teachers and a few parents.  I think everyone enjoyed the show-- I know I did.

Since a blog post needs a photo here are a couple of my art pieces from past years.

Until next time, peace!

Those are lovely, Gene!

I wish I had more time for sewing. Hopefully before too long. My husband is recovering from a major heart attack in December.

The Blue Fall Reflections is a verbal piece to me, while I can still appreciate the other two.
I want to see the rocks, and what are they for?

It is good to be busy. Doesn't the time seem to just fly by?

Your artwork is lovely, Gene. I still have the card you included when you sent my "Auburn" scarf.

I love your paintings. If I had painted something as beautiful as "Blue Fall Reflections" I don't think I could have ever sold it. It's amazing.
