Peace mandala




I had this nice silk ribbon but the colors weren't quite right so I dyed them with my inktense blocks. Fun!

Ranger oxide class

 Had a great time at the class. Here are my samples.


 So excited to play with my new stuff but I forgot my heat gun at the store so have to wait...

In the meantime I am so happy that Lucy and Riki finally had a play together. Only problem it was "THE YARN" they decided to have fun with! I only have one skein and bought it years ago.  I'm using it in my mandala project.

The ocd in me had to fix it.

Miss Lucy



I did not take any before pictures of Lucy. We were too busy trying to get her cleaned up and cutting mouse size mattes off of her. Someone else sent these to my husband today. This is the moment that she chose my husband as her human. She walked by everyone out there and laid right on his boot. I would say she is a good judge of character, all dogs are. I am so happy to say that she is now adjusting with the little black dog well.
 Riki is not real thrilled about sharing but he will get used to her. She is teaching him how to be a dog.
She has a bad earache, but no heartworms and going to have a small hernia and to be spayed tomorrow. They will clean her ear up while she is asleep, this little girl needs no more pain. She is the fattest stray but that is because she has the sit up and beg perfected! She is so sweet.
Poor sweetie had her operation. Tried to keep the cone off and look, she licked herself! I am a bad nurse!

Peace mandala

 Started working on the peace mandala. You would think I had never picked up a needle. Slow start, I only had a tiny bit of the shiny pink and wish I would have waited to use it until I was a little further along. When my friend suggested I use the peace sign idea with the lace it helped me over the hurdle. Wanted to use both but thought it was two different coat ideas. Thank you Susan.


 I was really trying to get to bed the other night when this gal insisted on popping in. I just love my Edgar Cayce doodles. :) You have to be really old to catch that joke.

zentangle mandala


Had some more fun with the rapidograph pen and parchment paper I found at that sale a few weeks ago. It is a mic but seems more interesting on it's side. Should I color it?

Jean jacket mandala




I think I'm going with this doily I crocheted years ago. It should be a good base for embroidering a mandala on it with the flannel colors. Going to hit walmart for the hoop and some more turquoise thread. I will be able to utilize more of the lace I bought last week if I go this way.

I really like the layered look with the hankie and dyed doily but I want to keep the coat a little more neutral so I can wear it with more outfits.

I may line the cuffs and color with the hankies. TOO MANY IDEAS!
