I think that I can finally get outside to pull some weeds tommorrow. We've gotten some much needed rain for the last 2 days, everything is really popping up. Tonight is my daughters Memorial Day Program. She is very excited for it. I began a new painting on my grandmothers old wooden cutting board. I decided to do a decorative primitive style chess/checker board. My grandparents were artists who had a ceramic shop and I have a set of chess pieces that they made, so we get the chess board. Hopefully it will turn out okay and I will be able to put it out on my coffee table. I also finally posted my pillow covers in my etsy shop. They are recycled wool sweaters that I felted then stiched onto a piece of fabric in the log cabin pattern. I like them, I hope they sell.

I also included a few pics of my crows, I love crows. Not the best pic of quilt but it is the best my camera will do for now. Well God Bless and everyone have a lovely day.

Well now no ghosts ETSY

Nephew Jake, daughter Eden, neice Erika with Sam and Sandy

Well well well, I was able to upload my mini hexes to my etsy shop. Pray for the best, this is my summer vacation money. So yes, I am not above putting a guilt trip on people, I am catholic and a mother after all, buy my stuff damn it. Today was interesting, my daughter has my same sense of time, we were 1/2 hour late for her soccer game, and we thought we were 1/2 hour early. Okay-I will own up to it-I am ALWAYS late and this is pretty much par for the course for me. So my insane life (and I do mean this most sincerely, for I am truly mad) is getting more insane by the hour-this I will go into detail and speak of later. My minor was marketing so a teaser should be expected. Okay-I am going to attempt to post pics of the farm and some hexes in progess. Don't forget I am laughinggoat on ETSY-great place to shop and while you are there please look at one of my oldest and dearest friends shops-fairiehearth-her blog is roses radishes and rubbish. She is the most amazing musician and artist and better friend than can ever be had. I promise that you will not be let down.

My 4th attempt to publish a post today

Well I am having an awful time trying to get my pics up and this post published. Does anyone else have the post they are typing morph into their blog front page? I think that my library ghost is now attacking my laptop. Something is not working for me. Anyway-beautiful day in the woods, nice and warm and sunny. I put off weeding too long and now the ground is almost too dry to pull out weeds. So I am here trying to get my artwork out. I did get a few pics of my newest hex signs, o yeah the other happy note, my camera batteries are dead and my spare ones are awol. So I am going to try again to get pics.

Painting Barn Flowers

Well I think that I am finally getting the hang of how to blog and post pictures (kind of). It is a real pity that I am not adept at taking pictures. I do have some works in progress of my most recent paintings. Time to stop playing on the laptop and get out to my weedy garden and get some work done.
