I worked on some paintings. I did a couple more leaf paintings and started another girl painting with flowers and also worked on some ferns. I also painted over several ugly paintings with red, which I find terribly satisfying. I think the old painting's lumpiness helps the new painting be better. See that girl painting, 'In The Garden' in the left hand corner, that's the one I sold a few weeks ago. This one is one I did for myself. It does not quite have the magic of the original, but I can almost forget about how much I miss the original when I look at it. The leaf paintings will be available on etsy. I also did an 18x24 hand embellished print on canvas of that 'In The Garden' painting. It turned out really good, I need to post a picture of that in case someone would like to buy it. I'm sure you are all sick of hearing me whine about selling that painting. :)
I started a sweater for Asher. While we were camping this weekend, Dave took me to Debbie Macomber's yarn store, A Good Yarn in Port Orchard. Gosh it's a neat store. I found a kit for a sweater I want to make Ash, but they were out of his size,( ordered it, they will call me when it comes in) so I bought this Rowan book because I liked this sweater and I already have this yarn. It's that Rowan denim yarn, that fades like denim, and I bought it at least 15 years ago to make a really complicated sweater with about a million cables and after all this time I only have the back done. So I might actually get this one done. I always forget how much I like knitting. A little boy sweater is about as fun as it gets. When it fades a little, it's going to look so good with his blue eyes.
