Mixed Mania in Florida
Hello from Florida. Its amazing! Vacation is so quiet and time does go slower. You have fewer things to fret about doing. I find that I am missing having my pet with me.
This the cute little Pool beside our little yellow cottage at Madeira Beach, Florida.
I have been doing some stitching in the evening on this embellished piece consisting of scraps from my challenge piece for The Thread Studio. I think I'll call it Cascade, I love doing the varigated French knots using pearl cotton and embroidery floss.
I spent an afternoon painting papers with watercolour paints and watercolour crayons. I had just finished reading one of my Christmas presents: Mixed Mania by Cheryl Prater and Debbi Crane. Good Book and lots of ideas to try!
I will cut up some of the papers for other projects. Following are two pages I did in my ongoing sketchbook.
Lastly, a view of the Gulf of Mexico at sunset. That's Hubby walking on the beach.
Until next time, keep stitching!
