What to do?

I’m signed up to go to rug hooking camp in June with

Heather Ritchie as my teacher, but I really have no idea

of what project I’d like to work on.

When I go to a workshop I like to try and take something

that I feel will be challenging for myself….rug camps are

good places to learn and stretch your creativity.

Here are a few ideas that I’m thinking of….

I like this piece above, it’s altered from a photo that I took

of Lonnie while I was walking him at the park a few years ago.

I love how the light is shining through the trees.  For me,

I think this would be the challenging part of the rug and I’ve

seen one of Heather’s rugs where she has light shining from

a street lamp. (You can see that rug HERE).

The picture of the distressed butterfly house and foliage

is another option….I like how it’s a bit abstract…another

technique I’ve not explored.

I really love this altered photo of Lonnie as well, but honestly,

I think I could do a fair job of hooking this on my own.

 

The next two are altered photos that I’ve taken as well,

but I just don’t think they are personal enough to warrant

spending that much time on, although I do think

they are very beautiful.

How do you decide what to hook when you go to camp?

Egg on my Face

This is what happens when you ASSUME

or

This is what happens when you have a BLONDE moment

or

This is what happens when you read something and interpret

it incorrectly

or

This is what happens when you are bamboozled.

 

 

I feel a little bit of all of those things right now.

I just found out, with the sponsored giveaway, that

they (Artisoo) choose a blog winner from the blogs promoting their

art, and THAT blogger and that blogger’s winner are the

only ones who get the paintings…..

I was not the winning blogger, which means

NO PRIZE for anyone here.

Don’t worry TRISHA….you WILL get a prize….it will just

NOT be the painting.

Feeling bummed and a bit bamboozled.

And the Winner IS…….

TRISHA

I ended up using a number generator from

Random.org to pick the winner.

Everyone left such wonderful comments!

Thanks for playing!

Trisha will be receiving Claude Monet's

“San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk”

compliments of

My choice is Georgia O’Keeffe’s “Cup of Silver Ginger”.

I’m a sucker for those chartreuse colors!!

I hope to have more giveaways in the near future!!

I can’t wait to see, when we get the paintings, if they are as

wonderful as they sound on the website….I certainly hope so!!

 

Didn't win? Don't despair!

If you really like the paintings they would like to offer a $30 coupon

A Taste of the South

Believe it or not, this blog post is NOT about food.

It’s about my darling husband, Kenny, and my wonderful

friend, Patti.

When we visited Patti in Florida last year, Kenny was quite

taken with all of the air plants and Spanish moss hanging

from the trees in Patti’s neighborhood.

A few days ago a huge package arrived in the mail and now

this is what our weeping pine looks like.

Thanks Patti for sending the moss…..Kenny was like a little kid

at Christmas decorating his tree!
