Creating on Vacation

Creative Cue ODD
I was inspired by odd socks of which we have many in our family. My son calls them socks without friends!

This week`s cue is TIE
I was inspired by different kinds of ties and decided to do a Zentangle of ties and knots in my sketchbook.


I continue to work on my class lessons for Fertile Earth. This is Lesson 4 still in progress. I am loving the look so far.

For lesson 3, I used Creative Chick`s photo of mushrooms and followed her stitching as well. I have now applied all the painted organza circles and I am adding the sequin waste as well. I love how Susan creates her layers in her stitcheries.
I spent today hunting for treasures at an antique flea market in Fort Walton Beach! I sleuthed out 2 vintage chiffon scarves, ribbon, a vintage hankie, dyed green cheesecloth, paper images of vintage photos and a 1950`s sewing pattern still in tact! All the fun is in the hunt and trying to spend as little money as possible. All this for $11 US!

You are creating some very interesting pieces from the Creative Cues. I also love your Fertile Earth pieces. I'm still on Lesson One unfortunately but am not in a rush.

Great cue interpretations. I like the description your son gives "odd" socks. I'm sorry to hear about the lost of your dog.

Those zentangle ties are great. I'm also enjoying watching the Fertile Earth pieces come together. I couldn't believe, when I scrolled back to the original prints, what your stitch has made of them - great stuff!
