This week, February 13th to 19th, I….

Didn’t have a great week… I have a health issue going on that is zapping my energy…

Managed to keep up with my photo of the day project but the mail project has gone by the wayside.  Too bad as I love sending mail.

Participated in FNSI and got a little bit done on a couple of projects…

And had fun at a soy batik and landscape painting workshop this weekend – here in my hometown, taught by my friend Dahn, and attended by six of my creative friends and I.  Here is some scenery…

Received this fun giveaway prize from Emma… the Dictionary of Tea tea towel…please click on it to enlarge so you can read all the fun definitions….


And this fun prize from Sarah….a fabric rotary cutter …. I can see making some scissors and other tools to go with it, perhaps in a mobile…


And this wonderful quilt kit from Elizabeth…in case you were wondering what inspired me to start a new quilt… check out hers….


I have a few swap items that I need to get finished this week… I hope I can get my energy back…
