I made 10 more snowflakes, 318. And today I made this purse. It's strips of batiks, sewn to a black fabric, made into a purse. 319 Looks like a party, huh?

The weather was nice, so the lights are up. Think I need a remote for my camera.

Make a drawing explaining how something happens. Sheep ice skates, while chased by dog. Hook into fleece pulls off wool from skating sheep. A swinging chain rolls up a ball of yarn, and then drops it into a basket.
That's how yarn is made, isn't it? Poor sheep, sounds uncomfortable to me.
Birds, a flower in the drapes, and a funny looking girl.

Start with a squiggle. Then turn the paper around, until a picture grows from it. My squiggle was the curved line holding the peanut. Long way from the squiggle, but there it is.
The assignment was to draw something you see, then turn it into a person. I hope I never meet her.
More pictures of my husband, poor man. He tries to look normal.
My giraffes seem to be devolving. One has a Siamese twin.

Actual photos of the kids, really.

Blind drawings of Grammas' dog, Buddy.
This is a horse with a music tail.
This time, we did blind contour drawings of each kid playing the violin, while waiting to practice. Some of us kept forgetting to not look at the paper while drawing. Many laughs later, we colored them.

This is a selection of Picasso dogs and people. You start by drawing an eye, turn the page 1/4 turn, draw another eye. Then turn 1/4 turn to add each feature. Straight or curved lines are added to complete the face. Way fun, the 7 yr. old loves doing this.
