It's MONDAY....




HEY! Don't run away (like the blockhead in the picture)! It's time for Monkey inthe Middle Monday!

This week is merely a continuation of last week. Sadly, I didn't finish either one of the painting pieces I showed you.
But I did make progress, some good, some bad (unfortuantely)...
First with the bad...don't like the Bells...at all...not one bit....
It's very hard to read the writing and I'm not happy with the dots...
BUT I am starting over...Sometimes you have to do things the WRONG way to figure out the RIGHT way...at this point, though, it's all up in the noggin....think they wil be much better next week- I'll have something to show you by then, for sure....

Now on to the GOOD....
This is the almost blank canvas I showed you last week.....

Now this I am happy with....still only about half done, but so far it is progressing just as I had hoped (and seen in my mind's eye)....This one is already called for- it's a suprise gift for a good friend (and that's all I can say- any more would give it away), but I am definitely writing a pattern for this one....

I'm calling it Good Day, Sunshine.....for obvious reasons...

So anybody want to share what they've been working on?

This last picture is just a shot I took while I was getting these pieces photographed. I liked it- so for no good reason other than that... here are a few of my favorite things....

Happy Monday, Everyone!

Geeze Steph...I so wanted to be a part of this special Monday, but as luck would have it, my real world job kept me working all weekend! Such is the life of a Realtor...gotta show that property when you can! Hoping to join you next week, tho..

Love the canvas..can't wait to see the finish!

Hey Steph!!!!

You are WORKING! WOO HOO! I guess that means you are getting settled in? :) HIPPITY HIP HOORAY!

I'm with you on the bells ... but I can't wait to see what you do with them when you try again. I do LOVE the canvas! WOW ... it's so cheerful and Spring-looking. We could use a little SPRING here ... ugh, we're getting coated with yet another round of SNOW. *pout*whine*sob*

Have a wonderful day today!

xoxo,
Dana

Hallo Stephanie, I visited your site and now yr blog. I read in PFFP that you moved to NY, New York state or NYC? Excuse me for asking but NOBODY in NYC seem to like painting, prim painting etc. so I was just wondering if you were living in NYC.

I love the things you do and you have a lovely website and blog.

Thanks for reading. Hugs
