I Dunno....



I worked on this for a few days.... then I thought it needed a leettle somethin'. So I added the white curly-cues....not at all sure I like them. What do you think....should I paint them out? it's big (for me ), 24x26... so painting out the white will be super easy...

Bloglandia Ball!



Oh dear....I'm so very late for the ball! My pumpkin resfued to change into a coach and my footmen remained mice. I had to run all the way! But....what's that I see? I think it's twinkling lights! And, yes, I hear the music ever so faintly....I'm almost there!

Ahhh....Sunday



As a "freelancer", I work super hard for bursts of time (18/7 usually). But I still feel guilty when between bursts, I play in my studio (AKA the spare bedroom) on weekdays. So I'm all over "TGIF". OK..so this is what I did with my weekend....played with some of the tecniques I learned in Anahata's workshop!

Too bad you can't see the pretty glitter....((le sigh))..

BOOKS!




Michelle Ward's 12th crusade is "Crush". What do you have a crush on? Mine is on books!

The quote reads;

"I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library"

Jorge Luis Borges.

Ready for Fall!!!

Oh yeah...this is my time of year. I'm soo not a 'summer girl'. I dislike heat, burn easily (followed by freckels), get heat stroke, and generally just look ugly in summer. I've never had a tan (and believe me, I really tried when I was a teenager), and all the 'tan-in-a-tube products I've tried look just awful on my skin.

In anticapation of chilly days I've jumped into two swaps hosted by Melissa. Here is my offering for her "Dia de los Muetos" swap



I know...it's not at all Hispanic...but I just moved to Santa Fe and I'm really overdosed on the style right now.

Next up is Melissa's Holloween ATC swap



I just love this crabby little witch in her "happy hat'!

Gothica

I've been working on a project for the Gothica swap. Have you ever bitten off more than you could chew? Well I did this time! I thought I would make and entire "Gothic" book...telling a story!! I must have been crazy to think I could do all that on schedule!!!

As the cut of date loomed...I relized I was in over my head and made one of the covers into a "dangle" (I can't say 'dangelie' becaues it's too big for that).

So...here is the front...which will some day be the inside of either the front or back cover.....



And here is the back...which will one day be the front...or back of the book. Are you confused yet?



And here is the reason I can't finish the book....



I spent so much time figuring out how to sew this....I ran out of time to make all the inside pages!
