The components for my pockets for Elizabeth at Creative Breathing/Blurbird Papercraft's Apron Pocket Swap. I have become the queen of the spray glue assembly line participating in these swaps!! Next up will be her Peppermint Christmas tag swap!!! I enjoy being challenged with a theme and stepping outside my "artistic" box!!!
Since I can't stand idle hands when I watch TV-I'm working on a punched yarn rug. Well...not technically. I HAVE an oxford rug punch..but for some reason I just can't do it...I also can't needle punch. I did find I could use my primitive rug hook and use yarn instead of wool strips and get the same look. This is my design from an old tapestry I saw in a book. The hubster thought it was a chicken. Um, no.. it's a PEACOCK!!!! LOLOL
Close up view. The colors are a teal, blue-violet, and plum for the Peacock. The background is going to be an ivory tweed. This will be a round mat for a chair or table when I finish. I have a friend who has peacocks that I think will love it.
Update on my mom. First and foremost--thank you so much for the encouragement and prayers. Her treatment schedule is pretty daunting. She will have chemo weekly for the next year and then radiation for thirty days. She's had two chemo's so far. She's doing pretty well--just tired and not much appetite. Still has her hair but the doc said it will probably start falling out in the next week or so. Her spirits are good and that's half the battle won. All we can do it put it in God's hands...He's the one in control here!
Have a great weekend!!!
