It's been a bit since I posted, I know. It's been on my mind, but with preparing for the yard sale, painting, and attending appointments, I've been lax. Also, I've been spending a little more time on my email at night corresponding with my daughter who would just be getting up in Korea. Right now, until she gets her phone and internet, she is using a friend's internet. Once she gets hers and settles in to her work, we will be communicating perhaps less and in different ways. I am looking forward to seeing some pictures of the area where she lives. If anyone is interested she is going to blog about her year in Korea. I will add her to my blog roll on the side bar.
I've also been doing of little bit of this with my husband for the first time in my life.
It's been on my mind that August is the anniversary month for my 1st year of blogging, and I've been pondering what I could do for a giveaway. After my yard sale yesterday, during some down time here in my studio, I started going through some baskets that hold bits of stamping and painting projects. I got an inspiration to use 2 of these tree designs that I screen painted last fall. The hand of the print is a little stiff as I used paint (it is fabric paint) mixed with a medium. I added a small border and then I couldn't decide between the bright batik or the more calm batik to finish them. It will make 2 approximately 12 inch blocks which would do nicely in a bag or as cushions.
