A new beginning

Now what do you suppose this pile of fodder could be turned into?  Bet you've already guessed!




I've set working on the quiet book aside for a bit for two reasons...#1 I have a landscape that needs to be completed before Christmas and #2 I pretty much need to wait until the baby is born and I know his name before I can finish up the last of it.

############
There's something new here on my blog - if you look in my sidebar you will see that many of my landscapes are for sale.  I finally figured out the mysteries of receiving payments through PayPal!  The 'blurb' in the sidebar gives you more information on how to see the ones I have available as well as how to contact me.

- THIS is a cute little fellow to make for Christmas (or anytime).  Scroll down to the bottom for the English version.

- And THIS is really cute too!

- THIS idea is such fun - provided you had the raw materials!

- I found some more amazing gingerbread houses HERE!  I can't imagine the effort it must take to make anything this gorgeous.  Be sure to scroll down!

- If you happen to have any men's neck ties hanging about (most men don't seem to wear them anymore), perhaps you might find THIS tutorial of interest. 

Today I am going to start a little series of quotes that I hope you'll enjoy...."As I get older I realize:  I talk to myself, because sometimes I need expert advice"

    1. I can't wait either! It's always exciting to start a new landscape, although at this stage I tend to wonder if I've bitten off more than I can do!

    1. Thanks Judy! Thought rather than storing them I should try to sell a few.

  9. Can hardly wait for the beginning of the next fabric artwork. I don't think the day's quote applies to me. LOL
