Movement II...

...Yes! I finished a new piece. I didn't quite stick to it as I said I wanted to in an earlier post but...I did finish...being distracted happens to be a huge part of my quirky nature. Go check it out in my ArtFire Studio, the above is just a portion of the bigger picture.

Happy Memorial Day!


My Mother reminded me that in times past, today was referred to as Decoration Day. Funny how things change over the years. I do remember being told this before but don't remember the reasons for the change.
We woke up to a beautiful blue sky this morning, birds were singing and life was happening! I hope everyone is able to celebrate today in their own way, we'll be catching up on chores....as we played all day yesterday.
We went to a Fiber Art show, beautiful work...then to a few galleries and walked around downtown Austin. It was a wonderful escape.

Gorgeous Morning...

Beginning of another work week for me. At least it's pretty outside, cool crisp sunny morning. Goal this week is to keep going on the new pieces I started last week...to not get distracted and start something else!
Hope everyone is having a great week.

Swooosh....

Another week has just flown by me! I was so tired this a.m. that when the alarm went off....I dreamed it was Sunday and couldn't imagine why I had set my alarm. Thank goodness for small dogs with overwhelming desires to be let outside each a.m.!
Pictured above is one of my hand painted needlepoint canvas designs. If you're a stitcher, you'll understand when I say it comes with a stitch guide, so you too can have the above as shown. Contact me with any questions akimberlydesign

Happy Mom's Day!

Just think...a day to do whatever...where you don't have to come up with any clever excuses to yourself about why the wash can wait another day!
