Log cabin locker hook

   Just dropping by to show you the latest rug I made. This rug is about 3 feet long by 2 feet wide and is made of some vintage double knit fabrics from my Aunt's Mom.
  A total of around 30 hours it took me to do this rug.
  The cool thing about double knit is that like the cotton it is washable and very durable. It turns out a run that is a bit heavier than cotton but also a bit plusher, softer....
   All for today - gotta get off to work here in a bit.

Anniversary card

   Yesterday was my daughter and son-in-law's First wedding Anniversary so I made them a card.
Their colors for the wedding was teal and copper and I used the same wedding couple stamp( from Flourishes). The bow was done with a die from Accu cut .
   The little Iffel tower portion was done a long time ago but it fit perfectly as one of the places they went on their 'honeymoon' was Paris. I did a whole sheet with stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms and then made up a bunch of trading card sized pieces, this one with the Iffel tower and a little doodad .
  The background was drawn and colored by me, also awhile back but it fit well too.
  And yes I did fix the crooked bow before putting it in the envelope.....
    Have a great day!!!

Red and turquoise

   I have been doing a cycle of red and turquoise paintings lately. This is a small one at only 6 by 6 inches.
I framed it out in a float frame which I really like how it looks!!!
   Cold wax and oils, this one has a lot of texture and nice deep shades of red under the brighter red makes for some nice dimension.
   All for today - Take Care

A tangled universe

   Cant believe that I hadn't shown you this one yet.
  This was a zentangle drawing I did awhile back with a space theme. I finally got it framed and its over in my space at the gallery - HH ARTS in Fort Walton Beach Florida.
  Done with pen, ink and watercolors.
  All for today - Take Care
