When I went to the quilt shop, I didn't buy anything. I don't have the quilting bug. I made patchwork quilts when I was a teenager, but I don't want to make quilts now. Weird, huh? I want to make skirts, curtains, wacky pillowcases, and bunting. I still like to look at all the colors, the order, the books. Do you? I made the curtain below for Jenny's first house. It might still be there! Don't you love polka dots? What's outside your window? What do you WISH you could see outside that window? I wish I could see the sea.
Notice the red theme? This time of year, I like red stuff. Red is smart.
I have been meaning to show you this assignment my arty/blog buddy/art exchange friend Lisa sent me. She suggested I color the images she drew from pictures on my blog. It was fun! We're both starting school now, so we'll slow down the frequency of our snail mail missives, but I have enjoyed getting to know her better and looking at her wonderful art! The link to her blog is on my sidebar (Pen and Ink and Maybe Some Paint). I am going to try to draw more at school and encourage the students to draw more, too. I'll let you know how it goes.
|Here's the dress I'm wearing on the first day of school. Doesn't this teacher look serious? This painting is called "The Governess" and I like it. Do you?|
What did you do today?
Thank you for stopping by, by the way!
