the picture is just lovely. would you come to my house and do a mural on one wall? then i can say , oh i knew her when.

cut out my kitchen curtains today. or rather i ripped the fabric. i find i get a truer line than if i cut it. i have to admit i hate the measuring part. got another piece of fabric, to recover the seat of a white glider that is in my living room. so many projects so little time.

That's a stunning picture. It's amazing what can be done with a sharpie. Do you do Calligraphy to?

I've taken that up in my spare time. What a lost art form.What is my problem with the G ?

I remember receiving letters where people actually wrote it. Today's kids just don't have or feel the need to pick up a pen and write. Most can't do it. In my day, ( sounds old to say it like that ) We had to have perfect penmanship or fail that class. I was always busted for doodling.. " Munky!.. Detention!.. see me after class." I tried to explain it's art. That didn't fly with my english teacher.. Ahh well I tried.

Munky.

That's going to be so gorgeous when it's done.

I haven't had caligraphy pens and ink since high school. They are on my list of supplies I'd like to get.

finished the kitchen café curtains. yesterday when i put them up, found the upper ruffle is to long. throws everything off. so tomorrow down it comes and will put in a deep hem. won't take long, just annoying. want to get started on covering the chair pad. patience is not one of my virtues.
