what I want to do...

versus what I should do....
this can really screw with my focus, my priorities....
because until I can do what I want...
I can't totally focus on what I should...a quandary for sure.
Drew these organic forms some time ago, now I want to paint them....
...see the bag of threads nestled in the bowl to the center...
what I should be doing.

 Late evening stitching, Chance is in need of a couple new collars...
and its a quick way to play with color.

So this is me just checking in this week. Still have my marbles!
Have a wonderful weekend, 
hoping all my family & friends up North 
are staying safe and warm.

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!

Happy Valentine's Day! 
Hope you all give yourself a big hug and 
treat yourself in some way that makes you totally happy!
Just look at her sweet face.
My sweetest Valentine, little Emma. 

I haven't posted a picture of my 
growing up all too fast granddaughter in a while. 
She's almost walking at nine months!

Over the past year... 
I've been adapting my art to 
the painted needle point canvas.  
In celebration of today...
here are a few of the Valentine pieces 
that have made the transition so far.

The gals at Bedecked and Beadazzled
have pulled some beautiful threads to work this up.
The shop offer to the first
caller/emailer/private message via FaceBook
is 10% off the canvas and threads!

This almost felt like the forever project. 
Looking forward to sitting in the 
purple stitching chair newest project in hand.

I need to add here that the paint I used is 
Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan
The supplier is Black Swan Bazaar.
I had a lot of guidance from Richard and Yvonne,
two fabulous people that had a lot of patience with 
all my questions...I about went nuts 
trying to achieve that wonderful shade of raspberry!
