Hah! I'll bet if any of you are keeping track of my posts and remember the title of my last post you'll be suitably impressed by how rapidly I'm creating hexie flowers. 34 to 66....a herculean task you think?
w-e-l-l you can just un-impress yourself because that's not what I'm referring to at all (hee hee). No. It's been a week of celebration here at Chez Magpie started off by Resident Chef celebrating his birthday followed a day later by me celebrating mine. Mind you, we don't celebrate beyond wishing each other a 'happy day' umpteen dozen times throughout the day. The most exciting thing was that one of my friends invited me over yesterday to enjoy our first (socially distanced and sanitized!) coffee date. Took my own coffee and my own chair but it was SO nice to see her in person. We've been doing the online video chat thing but that's not as good as the real thing. This friend and I have gotten together pretty much every week for over 30 years so it's hard not to see her in person. The two hours just flew by. Another friend dropped off a little gift for me so we met in the parking lot for a few minutes. All of those things, plus a couple of (oopsie) online fabric shopping retail therapy sessions made for a great week.
Now, on to what I've accomplished on the landscape...
I think you can see that the hand embroidery is starting. This is when the entire thing starts to come to life. Lots more to do yet though!
- I loved THIS - not sure where to get a door but perhaps there's another way to create one. So cute!
- Lots of eye candy in the galleries HERE.
- And how about the ones found HERE.
- You might enjoy a virtual stroll through THIS blog.
- And do check out the galleries of THIS great artist!
And your quote of the day is a smile....
