Wow – these are late to the internet…. These are from October 2013.
Bethany & Alexis made these:
And I made these:
Art night had one unintentional collaborations night in 2012, and these paintings came about (albeit a year later) because I had more paintings to use up, more paint, and a couple friends who missed out on the first monsters evening. Original inspiration came from these folks.
A couple years ago I bought a little “charm pack” of batik fabrics at the large quilt expo we have in town every September. It’s taken me a while, but I finally finished a table runner with those
Then I worked on making a backing for the above piece (out of green scraps) and decided that I like this side better than the batik charm pack side, so this is now officially the front side of the table runner:
Still to do: go to the hardware store to see if I can locate materials with which to build a hanging system similar to ones I saw all the time in Japan. I’m not actually gung ho about “table runners”…..
After many years of folks complaining they can never remember where to turn in to my house, I put some reflectors up on one of the trees next to my driveway. This is a variation of the Latvian symbol for good luck (Laimes zīme):
What I didn’t realize is just how happy it makes me to drive past this. Day or night, sun or rain, this thing makes me grin. The next step is to repeat this on the other tree across the way, so that my place is easy to find from either direction.
