I realized one of my friends birthday's is way closer than I knew or remembered. So all the sudden I did the " what can I do? " thought process. After taking the etching class, I got the idea I could make her an etched mirror with the items I know she likes. Her and I both like working with wool and like doing the primitive stuff. So pumpkins, sunflowers and crows are the answer. Here is what I came up with.
It's hard to get a good picture of these mirrors, because you're trying not to get in the picture but get the detail too.
I saw a picture in one of my primitive magazines that spurred this picture, however most of this I drew myself. Which is an accomplishment because I was never an artist that way. My Mom was an artist and could draw pretty much everything and paint it in any medium you could think of. I can do the sewing and cooking and painting, my Mom could do, however, I didn't get the natural drawing talent. But as I get a little older, I am getting better.
That was the majority of what I got done yesterday in the sewing room. I did a little stitching on my UFO of the month "Henrietta Whiskers" while I watched TV. I got 3 square in a square blocks done and 4 squares sewn in a row. I'll be working on that more today I think and so I'll show more of that later.
My Sister and Brother in Law are only here for 2 more days. They will be leaving early Thursday morning so not sure if we will be doing something with them today or not. I know we are going to dinner tomorrow - but we may be doing that today as well.
Have a Blessed day doing something you want to do Lynn
