Yes I am!
The winter weather and being stuck in this place for months has finally caught up with me.
This is what happens when I start to go off the deep end.
I was sitting in the kitchen last night with paint and glue and fiber and fabric all around me.
I was covered in paint and there were bits of fiber stuck to my clothes.
I think my husband was afraid.
He just looked at me and asked, "What are you doing, dear?".
I told him I was losing my mind, so he  kissed me on the forehead and walked out of the room.
Anyway, here are the results of yesterday's nervous breakdown.
The blue painting is just that...don't ask me how I did it or what it is. It just is.
These next photos are of ribbon that I painted.
That's right...painted.
I wanted to dye them, but I didn't have anything to dye them with, so I use food coloring first and then squished a bunch of acrylic paint into them.

These next photos are of some textile collages of Spring.
Not quite finished.

I thought the bird was a robin, but I'm not so sure, now that I look at it.

Here are a couple of bits of painted paper and fabric.
Things to use in future projects.

This morning I had to clean up the mess from last nights fit.
Is anybody else out there going crazy from the winter blues?
What do you do to fight off melancholy moods?
I'd love to hear your methods of keeping your sanity.
Thanks for putting up with me.
Have a wonderful Monday everyone!
