A quiet walk to the wildlife ramp down the street at sunset produced this view.
Still making progress on the stripey blanket ...
And a bit more .... That ripple stitch pattern was fun. I'm using only two kinds of yarn in this blanket (so far): Impeccable and Red Heart "Soft." They aren't exactly alike, but they're both worsted weight, and they work fine together.
When we painted last week, I found Julia two canvases! Big canvases like this are expensive, at least $15 apiece at Michael's. These, however, came from our local thrift store (yes!), at $3 each. Some painter brought them in, and I knew Julia would be happy painting over them and giving them a new lease on life :)
She applied a couple layers of white acrylic, and began adding black to reach a nice steely gray.
This is her final picture:
She wanted a painting to match her room decor. (She's really into decorating.) She has a good bit of gray and white.
So we're keeping going with our artistic sides and looking for beauty and creativity around us.
