In the Works

I have been so busy! I have a new house I'm trying to put together and I've had a few large painting commissions.  Business is good and I can't complain :)

This painting is done now..........  a 30x44 inch pink feathers watercolor! Pheww!  I set a record for the largest watercolor I've ever sold with that one.  And since I didn't have an easel or board large enough to attach it to- I had to tape it to my wall :)


My hexagon blanket is going oh so slow.  I started it months ago and it will still be some months before it's finished, but it's going to be pretty! I'm working on tutorials and a pattern to go with it- so stay tuned for that this winter.


And.... I brought my bat invasion along with me to my new home.  I don't have any pictures hanging up yet so these paper bats are a welcome site on my bare white walls.

  2. Oh, that painting is beautiful! I'm also loving your blanket. You actually inspired me to learn how to crochet (it's how I'm going to pass my recovery time) but I found the hexagons too difficult for my first project so I'm sticking to granny squares.

    1. Good luck with the crocheting and the recovery- both are a process and take time. But crocheting is a good way to pass recovery time and I hope it helps you!

  3. Oooh Elise
    I learnt to crochet this year and although I am months and months away from even attempting a rug as gorgeous as yours - I will ogle your Creation and patiently wait for your pattern.

    1. Thanks Pia! I've been crocheting for a few years now and it takes a while to get the hang of it. I'm glad you are learning!

  4. Ah I love your paper bats. What a brilliant idea. We have butterflies in the bathroom a little bit similar.
