I havent been feeling well the last few days. I have another cold thats really got me down, but last night I was sooo bored and couldnt sleep so I sewed together a jewelry pouch for the jewelry I am selling in my shop. At first I wasnt sure how I was going to do it because I am new to sewing. My husband got me a sewing machine recently so I have been trying to use it and practice with it as much as possible. I actually love how it turned out. The fabric is vintage. It came from a collection of fabrics my grandmother had stashed away. She had soo many squares of vintage fabrics that I wanted to take it all. But she let me have this remanant that I really enjoyed. I'm really glad I figured out what to create with it. I think the new owner should enjoy this.. its a good addition to the necklace I think :) I just thought I would share.

[Next I decided I wanted to add a butterfly too... so this is the outline I drew in pencil]
[then I painted the butterfly. I wanted to add a few warm colors to contrast the flowers :) ]
[At the end of Day 3 this is how it looks :) ]
Almost done I think, yay! More to come soon!
[Starting fresh I added more flowers & since I had the light of day the colors show better in the pic lol]
[I decided to 'frame' the flowers and paint the entire wall a solid color. Its called Ancient Purple. But I painted it w/ streaks to add some design and dimension]
[Once that was finished I added the blue background and clouds]
I think todays progress was good. Tomorrow is Detail day lol. Then I'll need to figure out how to incorporate the other walls of the room in some way. I'm thinking of adding a butterfly or maybe a flying ladybug.. or a bird. Hmm. Not sure yet :) Thanks for visiting! Stay tuned for more!
This is just totally awesome in my opinion. Check it out!

Tonight we have church but I honestly think it will be canceled because its snowed a ton more since last night and I know its going to be dangerous for older folks and kids to walk in the parking lot tonight if it was last night. Im sure no one wants any one to get injured. I'm hoping the road crews come and take care of our drive tonight. They've been stopping and taking care of it for us because we do have a street sign and its paved so its technically a private road... Im thankful for that! We still walk because we dont trust the incline and the black ice but its so much easier for the walk when we dont have to crunch through a foot of snow and we know where we are putting our feet .lol.
These are just a couple of pictures that I took this morning and wanted to share. :)
[This is the view from our porch]
[And this is the icicles hanging from our porch. I took this picture so that you could see how big and long they are!]
Wishing everyone a blessed day. I'm going to totally revamp my studio today. I think I may even paint a mural as well :) yay! I'll share pics soon!
