I have few that I am finishing and done since January and will up date with these again soon. I promise or hope. Hope all are well and enjoy the work I have done.

Sorry it has been so long since I been blogging but life got in the way. We have traveled a lot visited family and friends. Had weddings and funerals, cried some and laughed a lot! I have finished several projects and started some new ones. I thought I put up some pictures of the projects and move forward. Glad to be back!




p1020466  p1020453  finished the eleven cross stitches stoles for the wedding. They took a long time but was worth every mintue when I saw Karen’s face!


p1020445 Sweater for Debbie! And now long did that one TAKE to get to her????!!! Forever! but she was great about the wait. This was the first sweater I ever did in the round and cut with steeks. EEEkks it is hard to cut your work! But I think it came out great. It is from the book More Big Girl Knits.


p1020219 a quick request from a friend to make a christmas sock for a new daughter in law.


p1020390 Rose bud hat for Alaina from Itty bitty hats. She loved it and knows she is just to pretty for words. The pink sling was a present for Mommy made two; one gray and one pink so Alaina could ride around all snuggly!




Last picture of Dad with Alaina days before he went home to be with God! We sure do miss him!


p1040100   p1030861  p1030895  p1030985  p1040116

Christmas in Chicago, Detroit, Marquette, then New Years in Florida. Then back up to Marquette for furneral and then Bay City for Wedding. The coldest was 31 below the warmest was 78 and many plane stories to tell of canceled flights, getting flights, not having the right gates, wind on the runways. But all worth it when your with family and good friends! Was gone from December 19th (home a day here and there maybe) back January 16th. Glad to be home for a while!



 p1020213 watercolor of Alaina for our 2008 Christmas card. Had a great time painting this one. Thanks to Judy it came out great!


Can’t find other project picture right now. Made a white sweater for Alison’s mom, painted a kitchen table and bench, dyed several silk scarfs, knitted wrist bans for Karin and finished and published mom’s poem book!


So now you know where we have been, seen, loved, and opened gifts at!


Put on my needles a light blue cotton swing jacket for Carol, lace shawl for Emily Ann, and bubble pants for Alaina. Organized my project for the next six months. Have them all lined up in the craft room and ready to go.


Glad to be home back to the grind and looking for Adventures! Hello 2009!

These are pictures of my watercolor class with my teacher Judy Huang. I think I am coming along with the new techniques I have learned.  Judy is a wonderful teacher and Karin my fellow student is a marvelous watercolor painter too.






Karin has just finished two pictures that are wonderful. One is of her husband Franco and I will ask her for permission to post her work next class. The other is not really one picture it is a series of churches. Karin’s family own a wonderful (and I mean wonderful) restaurant in Fayetteville Ga. It has long been Paul and my favorite. It is called City Café and Bakery. If you are near by you should visit! Especially during Oktoberfest! Well, back to my reason to tell you about class. Karin is putting up her collection of churches in the restaurant and has asked Judy and I to also do a church to be included. I think it was very generous of Karin to include me. I could see why she would want Judy’s work but I think she is just being nice to me!


Each church is from somewhere around the world and so very nicely done. I decide that I would paint a church from right here in Peachtree City. Since I have been doing a series of landscapes around town I thought it would be in keeping with my theme too. This is the “First Presbyterian Church” in Peachtree City.






I also wanted to show you one of my favorite pictures that Judy has done. I think it is one of her best! It is available for sale on her website under watercolor floral. Take a peek and see it up close!



the web site has the picture in detail and many other pictures of Judy’s too.


I hope you enjoy and when all the pictures are up at City Cafe and Bakery I will take a few pictures to share with you.

I have been having fun in my new watercolor class. I am taking classes from Fayette Art Center in Peachtree City. My teacher is Judy Huang. She is a wonderful artist and great teacher. I believe she has taught me in these short 6 weeks more that I have ever learned in any of my watercolor classes before.Thanks Judy!

 I will be adding the new projects as they come along: 


 This was my first picture done with Judy.


 This was done in an earlier class. The technique is called “Pour Technique” you take a well wetted watercolor paper best to use cold press then pour on the paper very water down pure primary colors (red, blue, and yellow). Then lay a sheet of with plastic wrap on top with wrinkles and all. Let dry several days. Then left the plastic wrap and see what you have then you begin to work with what your eyes sees and likes to bring your composition.
