Small Crochet Flower

Small FlowerAfter I got tagged yesterday on Facebook about a Yarn Bombing there was a lot of conversation about that as well as making small crochet flowers to put in trees to make it look like spring until spring arrives. There are so many flower patterns but here is a simple little one that always turns out nice and can be made with 4 or 5 petals. Give it a try.

Paint for Life Party

Paint for Life Party

Yesterday evening we had a Paint Party to benefit a Relay for Life team.  Thanks Lynn for the great idea and thanks to everyone who came out to paint.

We did a lovely painting of Hydrangeas Along the Fence.  And everyone did a fabulous job!  Good work.

I originally painted this scene as a graduation present for my niece, Lexie.  You can see that here.

Jean's FlowersThis photo was recently posted on Facebook by a dear friend in Nashville who has this little painting that I did when I first started painting.  I’m not sure if there is a date on it but I would guess it was in the early 1990’s.  I am delighted that Jean is still enjoying this little piece of art.  Thanks for sharing it with me Jean.  It made my day to see it.

The demonstration painting from The Village at Orchard Ridge class is finally complete. (Here is an earlier look at this painting.)  Since we only meet 2 Fridays per month it takes a little longer to complete these.  And I want to be sure the students get their painting to the place they want it to be before we call it done.  They all did great!

Now to see what they want to paint next!
