Back to work?

Sometimes I think I never get a vacation!  Spoiled aren't I!  This a.m. after feeding the dog, bird, Bob; taking Kalee for a one mile walk, I changed sheets and started laundry; went to the post office and now I'm going to try, I say, try to work on my fiber cards!  Guess "woman's work" is never done is it!  Hubby has it made, as do most men...he doesn't even have to do lawn work here in Florida...just eat and golf!  What a life!

alright, I'll stop complaining!!!  I did get to 'play' with dyes yesterday.  Michael's had some good $1 buys on embellishments so I picked up a bag and dyed them.  Thinking I might use them on my fiber cards...but then again........

I still haven't a clue as to what I'm going to make this year.  I printed onto fabric my Flamingo doodle I posted about last time and then started some hand stitching on it. 

Not that folks who receive these cards aren't appreciating them but it takes so much time to embellish by hand I'm just not sure I want to hand stitch 20+ flamingo's!  Last year I did add beads by hand on each card but I must have been in a better frame of mind!  Yes, I'm getting lazy in my old age but that's what old folks do.  We get lazy, grouchy and just want to do what we want to do, when we want to do it! 

This is a piece of paper fabric I made on Sunday.  I picked up some muslin, painted on a layer of matt medium, then layered tissue paper and some of my doodles I printed out. 

So now I'm going to try and put my thinking cap on and see if or what I can do with this piece of fabric.  I actually made two pieces so we'll see. 

It's another beautiful day today...slight breeze and in the 70's.  I guess back home they had freezing rain and schools are closed.  Sure don't miss that!  Guess doing laundry, cooking, cleaning and playing with fabric "ain't" so bad after all!  could be worse...I could still be working! 


  1. I love your flamingo fabric paper! I'm sure something will come to you for a creative use for it.

  2. Ahh your post is very much truth as we become more mature. Work is worse than our lot of laundry, cooking and cleaning. All of your choices are beautiful. Fun flamingo fabric you created. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts Dear...

  3. Oh, beautiful colours, I got carried away stright away. I wish I didn't have 20 other projects to finish!
