I thought I'd share some Works In Progress with you.

Most of my journal time the last few weeks have been spent
writing about Rocky.

Before Rocky's passing,
I had started this lady.
I was quite excited about her.
I wanted to work on a few techniques before I put her on canvas.
This is from my journal.

I'm not sure now where I'm going with her,
but I'll start again -- one day.

You can tell by the wrinkles that this is definitely a WIP!
What a lot of fun!
Reading glasses are a must!

My book making supplies have all arrived.

Snap, I love the journal page with the woman and I look forward to seeing where you take's a magnificent beginning.

And your counted cross stitch is delightful. I spent so many hours doing counted cross stitch and loved it. I haven't taken up a needle in over 10 years...time passes much too quickly. As does our eye sight!!

Snap, That journal page drawing is amazing! Wow, and that's just a study? Beautiful. I wish I could draw. Both my sisters got that talent. Me? Not so much. I have to settle for word pictures.

Love the cross stitch, but I can't do it. It would kill my already overtaxed eyes (computer eyes.) must save them for work... But it sure is cute.

Thanks for sharing a page from your journal and such a beautiful pensive lady in your collage. The colors really speak when I enlarged.
And I'm glad we share the Blue Rider!

Your journal page woman is so beautiful - very Modigliani in flavor. I understand leaving her where she is for now though.
Have fun with the book making.

Thanks for the hugs today.They mean a lot as we go through this with our sweet old lady, Singer.
Much love !
