This and that

Yesterday I did 3 loads of laundry, cleaned house then started playing with a new technique for my Art Diary (before getting little ones from school. Wed. is my babysitting day). I'll post pics this weekend, if it turns out. I saw on someones blog (I have to find out her name) where she did some stitching on the fabric to batting, then applied modeling paste, then some inks and bleach. Not sure what my results will end up being but the original post looked really cool. I finished stitching my piece while watching Tigers last night (they lost!) and I'm going to use Gesso instead of modeling paste today so it can sit and dry for a day or two. We'll see how this turns out and what it's good for! If anything!

Friday and Saturday I'll be at a workshop by Lenore Crawford. You have to check out some of her work. She makes her own patterns and enhances them with paints and thread work. There are about 19 in our class and I'm really excited to finally take a workshop with Lenore.

You have to check out this video! Talk about hand/eye coordination!! You really have to appreciate the fact he's flying this plane inside, let alone all the loops he's doing! It's really cool!


  1. I showed this to Lloyd, and told him "this is on Robbie's blog.." and he said "she does that too???" LOL!! You are truly amazing! (But I told him I didn't think you were taking up flying airplanes as a hobby.) Great blog! SueG

  2. Thanks, Sue! Bob is interested in the 'flying' so maybe after his 'golf life' he can fly! Have to keep him off the streets you know! Take care!
