Snowing outside, flowers blooming inside
It's been a long time since I've posted and I wouldn't blame you if you've abandoned me, but I have a very demanding job and schedule, and haven't had much time for creativity so I didn't have much to post. I've been diving more into photography lately (those these photos aren't my best - horrible lighting and snow coming down on me had me shooting fast to protect the camera), but recently I got my first paying photo gig and with any luck, I'll have me a new fancy camera by Christmas! In the mean time I have been working on this gourd project for my mother and father in law for FOREVER! I wanted it to be perfect, and perfection takes time. Still not sure it's done (in fact I added more color after the photos were taken), but B says it's time to let go, time to put it in the mail and be happy with what I've done. I'm actually pretty pleased with it. Done with wood burning and colored pencil, all Illinois prairie flowers, and my mother in laws 2 favorite insects. I'm so glad to be done with this project and on to something else I hope. I'll be posting some cool photos from some recent adventures in the coming weeks. B and I have had a wonderful fall, and even though I should have stayed inside on the first snow of the year and knitted, I couldn't resist, having a snowball fight with B, and taking my dogs to go play in it. Knitting will come soon.
Hope you're all well and enjoying this holiday season!
