I sometimes wonder what cats seem to be observing that is completely invisible to us. I took these over several days.
What or who does she see up on the ceiling...
...down on the floor...
...on the ceiling again...
...out on the porch...
...in the hallway...
...and on the floor again? What are they watching so intently? I have always seen cats do this. I like to think she sees angels or spirit guides. ;)
Anyways, I did get out the good easel.
Because the base is clear Plexiglas you can use this for tracing, too. I love the way it hangs over the edge of the table so you can get really up close and personal.
I did tape up the picture of the church, tried to straighten my sketch up with my carbon fountain pen, and then erased the pencil lines.
This is as far as I got...because I got sidetracked yesterday...
Put together 17 "scrap cards".
I've always called these "scrap cards" because every time I make covers for my bookcards from 12" X 12" scrapbooking paper I can get two covers from each sheet of paper and then end up with a couple of good sized extra pieces or scraps. They're not large enough to cover the front of a card, but all the top parts of these cards are scraps from bookcard covers. Then I go through my regular scrap bin to find pieces for the bottom that would coordinate with the bookcard cover scraps.
I had already gotten that far with a whole stack of them. So...yesterday...I decided I needed some fast cards. The simplest and fastest way to put them together is just to grab some ribbon and a flower or big brad or something for an embellishment and that's that. Not fancy, by any stretch--but I love making them because they are basically a recycling of scraps project. And recycling always makes me happy. :)
It was also Caroline day yesterday--tada! I asked her to help me bring in the tall fans from the garage. How ridiculous to be doing that already in March, eh? And to already be asking Caroline to wipe out the window sills and clean off the porch door glass like it's spring. I wonder if it really is?
I set this little rug on one of the chairs by the table (new spot) and, of course, Karma slept on it while I finished the scrap cards...on into the evening.
As the sun was setting last night I saw this gorgeous bank of clouds angled across the sky...
...and grabbed the camera. :):)
I was watching (on Netflix streaming) The Human Experience. I am more than half way through it. Decided to take a break, dry my eyes, and blog. What remarkable young men and what a journey! And now I shall go back and finish watching as my heart unfurls.
Spread the love!! :):)
