Winter Weekend

Blitz is the only one in the house that seems to have the right idea of what to do in a winter weekend.
I did some more sketching this morning and feel ready to reach for a very deep blue for Martha's skirt...
I got a base down and decided to hide the outline of bleeding hearts at the hem.  Wish me luck!
As a side note:  this is my darling frosty fern my sister gave me for Christmas.
Had to share...I love it!
Have a great weekend!

Happy New Year!

I don't make new years resolutions, but I do like the opening of a brand new calendar to head me into cleaning out book shelves, re-organizing life in general and checking back in on neglected projects and starting new ones. 
I was given a new sketch book for Christmas.  It has been really nice to just sit and do some breezy sketching.   
This poor girl is first on my list for color.  She has been patiently waiting for months.
"One and Many" is next on the list for paint.
We started this new year by having to say good-bye to our precious Faye. I really don't have words to cover it...
Looking forward to healing and making!
