mending with color




The  corner of this tablecloth had a spray of rust stains. Now garden islands are poking through melting snow.

Right now I have no plans to use this technique in a piece but let me think on it some.




If you are shopping online for the holidays, the last day to mail first class for Christmas arrival in the US is next Tuesday, but I'm calling it Monday, 12/19. ..the store inventory is current! Run Wild!

Last year the lobby of our local post office looked like the deck of the Titanic as the last boats were being swung out....

Love this a lot! Gotta start using those burritos I bought a while ago. Need to find something that would play well with this sort of peek-a-boo.

Love this - the contrast of bright pops of colour against the snowy white is stunning. Less is more.
