Well today was an unexpected fun day for me. Kept looking at that rock/sponge and thought, it need something else, something was missing, etc. etc. Finally dawned on me it needed some kewl fiber to make me excited. I knew I wanted warm colors and looked through my stash of yarn and didnt have the right one, so I make my own out of several color's I had. It was great fun to play with the fiber and now it looks much better to me and ready to go. Hope you like it too.
Love days like this.

Well now look at what our neighbor Tom found on the side of his house, baby coyotes.
They are so dang cute, he said he has an eye on them, maybe we'll get more pictures of them growing up.
Just had to share.

Well as I am this type of person, another NEW PROJECT, is in the works.
A new Beaded Rock, a/k/a Sponge!
I really wanted to bead a rock, but because ARTHUR doesn't like to hold heavy rocks a friend on BAD suggested a sponge, how kewl is that. So Ed, my d/h gave me his sponge for washing the car. I was so excited, just a little sponge, yup, but it will mean a lot to me as it was his and I"m doing this project. I"m posting how I started this so you can see if you would like to do your own rock someday. I sure hope it works out the way I plan for it to work out. I really dont know when I can start this, but at least its started. This picture is of the sponge that I started out with.
Enjoy the process.

Well I ran into a shop because I was early for lunch and look what I found, a new basket.
To me it was pure ART. There isn't much in life that I have to have, well except beads, but I had to have this.
Right now its on my living room table, but it could easily be on the kitchen table too or on the wall somewhere, lots of uses for this.

Here is Halina framed. She was a "Bead a Long" on my Beaded Art Yahoo group, the challenge was the use of the color yellow which most gals dont like, for me, it wasn't a problem, I love yellow.
Hope you like her.

Here is another UFO just completed this week. It was a Fiber Bag class by Rowena Tank here in Prescott, Arizona. I think I took the class about two years ago. I'm determined to get all my UFO's DONE this year.
This was done with fibers on a loom, learned about Warp, Weft, Tabby, Shed Stick, Beating etc etc. Then the fiber ends that stuck out were all hand beaded. There is a LOT of beading on this purse. A great learning experience for sure.

Here is my other passion, knitting.
This is a scrap sweater I'm making for myself in light, medium and dark blue's. I thought the blue's would be great to wear with jeans. I just took about two yards of each color and tied them together and am knitting away.
I have no idea how it will turn out, the fun of it all!

The flowers sure love this cooler weather. I've had a tomato plant in the house and it went outside today for a 'sun tan', he is very happy now!
Here's some UFO's I got done this week. More to do next week!

Okay guys, here's some pictures of beautiful Sedona, the bead shop where we stopped for some 'stash' and lunch and some Art shops. They wouldnt let us take pictures inside of the Art. sigh. It all was just beautiful and I'd go again today if I wasnt so tired from it all. But I did good for four hours, now that is good for me. Oh yes, and some 'dead tree's' for the dead tree friends! LOL
YOu know who you are!
