What a mixed bag this will be today. When I've finished, I really will have caught up at last.
Artist Trading Cards
Teri sent me this marvellous Irish Zentangle ATC with shamrocks. Teri, you rock! I love it:
ATC/ABC Round 2. K is for Katydid
It looks like a sort of grasshopper to me - it's from Teri too and she is writing a Haiku for each of her letters this time round.
Teri also enclosed a fabulous lolly stick book mark:
It's decorated on both sides. Isn't it great. I have hung it up in my office.
I did K for Kiss
L for Love, Ladybird, Lovebirds and Laughter.
I have just made M for Marianne the Musical Mermaid! It is, as you can guess, going to Marianne in the Netherlands:
I am just working on my 'N' for next week's letter.
I finished the rag rug I was making for our new bedroom. The colours aren't quite true to life as it actually goes very well with the Amish quilt, show below. I have made it thick and tight and it weighs a ton.
I used the base of the rug I washed in the machine which fell apart!! Luckily the border was still intact.
I also promised, a long time ago, to post a photo of the Amish quilt Jim and I bought on eBay. I just love it and it goes beautifully on our bed:
This photo is taken from the side.
The last 2 are close ups of the detail in the quilt. So much work.
Sandy has taken to sleeping in one of my material boxes - when he's not on my chair:
How comfortable he looks!
Can you still see him? Yes, I know my room's a mess - that's just me. I tidy up now and then.
Today Jim and I carried on clearing the wood below the orchard and it looks so much better. I did take some photos but I might save those until tomorrow. Also some of Buster - as he hasn't featured for a while.
Happy Easter Monday everyone.
