Color!!?

all... Here is a basket full of color! These are going to turn into a granny square blanket...that is what is in my mind at the moment...I am not super crazy about having to hide 50 million ends..so we'll see what happens. a sample of the motifs I may use for the new blanket..

I can't stray too far from my normal black and white work so here is a quick peek at a project that I've been working on for the past year or so. These are going to turn into a series of 4 art quilts. These are all from my fave park on the island, Snug Harbor. If you are in the NY area and have the opportunity to visit you should! I love the neptune fountain. I saw the Neptune fountain in Madrid and I have to say that it can't hold a candle to the one here. I printed these on fabric. It should turn out pretty cool...am looking forward to starting these.



Am about 2/3rds of the way through a new wrap. I like the flecks of color in the brown. It is very cozy.


Still submitting resumes...no luck as yet. Something will come up.


Tomorrow is my first html/css class. Am looking forward to learning something new. Will post more tomorrow on that!


I took advantage of the gorgeous weather on Monday and Mimi and I planted some potatoes in the back yard, tomatoes and basil in the pots in front. I wish I'd had my camera with me to take a picture of Mimi's face when I dug up some worms!! She is absolutely a city kid!


Keep dry!

Am Still Here!

Hi all... couldn't resist posting at least one picture...I thought I'd post my favorite from Madrid...it was after a rain storm...we stuck it out in the market just outside plaza mayor. we came out and looked toward the plaza del sol and saw this rainbow! I feel like this...like I am in a storm and soon a rainbow will appear and everything will be ok.

But anyway...enough of that!! I haven't fallen off the map..I've been teaching myself html/css...woohoo...let's see what kind of mischief I can get into!! Other than that I am working on the garden. Am planning on growing more vegetables this year...am assuming that I won't be employed anytime soon. I am sending out resumes, but am not having any luck. I miss the old days...You'd call up your fave employment agency, they'd have you come in and within a week or two you had a job. It was so much more personal. Now you are sending out resumes and you've no idea who is reading them. You don't hear back...there is no connection. Something will turn up eventually. until then, I'll take classes and make stuff. I am hoping for a sunny day so I can take those durn pictures and post them to etsy. I have to finish drafting the 'angry bunny' character I want to screen print on some tee shirts. The elephants really turned out cute. Mimi wore it last night to bed...she looked adorable.


well back to coding...wish I was in Spain!!!!!

night!
