Another book and "In Beauty she walks"














Another week and another book,I love to paint but theres something about stitching the book thats so relaxing. I think because when I paint I'm constantly on my feet moving around and then when I stitch the book I'm usually sitting down sipping coffee. I think I over did it on this painting,not sure if its too busy or if I like it the way it is. I guess its kinda abstract in its own way. My company came and went,it was a nice short visit and my mom never came which was fine so I had a quiet week to paint and sew. Hope everybody else is having a good week and enjoying some cooler weather,its still hot down here,we usually don't feel a change until late october ugggg. Be back soon!

Never tried to do any stitching to make a journal but I think it is happening at some point in Katie's class. So may have to ask you for some tips!

These journals are excellent Buffy--love them!!
It's nice to have time just to do what you want--isn't it? I can't wait to have a little more free time.
