About Me

My photo
I retired early because my legs don't like holding me up for too long. So now I can do things in my own time. I like to sell things at farmers market. Most of which, I've made myself, e.g. homemade soap, crochet dish cloths, hand towels, baby afghans and of course,..tatting.

And some more caps

Some more caps. I've run out of the light up ones. I even went back to Princess Auto, but there were none there.

Accidental Art

I had been working on this and left it on a counter top. My DH spent the weekend shampooing the carpets. I hadn't noticed until today. It got all splattered. Actually, I liked it, so I splattered it a little more. I hope it shows up in my picture.

Caps Again

Yep, I'm on hats again. Must be a sign of spring. I also, put a new table cloth on the dining room table. Another sign?

Two More Trees

Well, that's the last of my season trees series. Here are Autumn tree and Winter tree. I painted hoar frost on the winter tree, so it has a sparkly hoar frost effect. I don't think it's showing up in the picture. I'm learning to use water color paper and preferably a glue stick. Otherwise the paper gets a little warped.

Boat and background

I attempted to paint a background for my second sailing ship. I paint like a 6 year old.

Sailing ship #2

One more of Jane's beautiful sailing ships. I like to make a second from her completed pattern so I can pester if there are any errors. Old secretaries never die, we just become a nuisance. Hummm, I hope I spelled that correctly.
