What happened?

I know, right?  Seems like forever, since I have posted anything.  Happens when things get busy. 
Anyway, here are a couple of new watercolor cards.  The, Queen, Jack and King of Cheese!  Plus a very tiny one with a little bird's nest.

And, guess who is already almost year old.  Two more weeks for this little guy!



He is getting around pretty good on his own now.  But there are a few tumbles, hence the bandaid.

Carrots and Bumbles

Here are the four 'suits' for my playing cards.  Shown is the Ace of Bees, the Ace of Carrots, the Ace of Wool and the Ace of Cheese.  Here are two more in the carrot cards, the 2 and 3 of Carrots:
Now two more for the bees.  The 2 and 3 of Bees:
These are fun, so far.  I cannot wait to get to the Jacks, Queens and Kings!

Playing Cards?

OK, Dave (the husband), suggested I do a deck of cards in watercolors. I said, "Maybe..."  Well, after having to decide on four suits, here is the "Ace of Bumbles."  Keep an eye out for the "Ace of Carrots!'  Keep in mind, it is only 3" by 4".

A Bridge and a Few Swans

Let's start with the swans.  I have been working on Curtis Boehringer's 12 Days of Christmas designs, off and on, for a while.  I decided to stitch with wool felt on a cotton background.  Here is Seven Swans a Swimming.  (That's a lot of necks!)



Seven Swans a Swimming

I have also finished Block 3, Packhorse Bridge, from The Raspberry Rabbits.  Lots of specialty stitches added to this one.  The sparkly threads for the water are one of my favorite parts.

Sunflower Caravan

Finally!!  I feel as though I have been stitching on Block 3 of Briarside Lane by The Raspberry Rabbits F O R E V E R!!  It is a fun, gypsy-type caravan with lots of decorations.  Take a look:


I was unable to make the wheels as shown on the chart, so I came up with something else!

Bumbles

There's something about the chubby, little bodies that I find appealing of those bumble bees.  So, another little sketch turned into a water color.
