Beautiful Morning

It seems like it's been forever since I've posted anything here.
This morning as I stepped outside, I noticed how lovely the sky was and I felt like I needed to dust off the camera and capture the moment.
I've done a little creating over the months that I've been gone, but nothing like I once did.
This year there won't be handmade gifts for Christmas as there usually are.
I've even hired someone to help clean once a week, which is something I swore I would never do.

A while back I tried working with some paper clay and made a few dolls.
this one is my favorite.

She lives in one of my favorite wall pockets.

I've also been playing with some textiles and textures.

Here I've layered recycled grain sacks, batik fabric and cheese cloth.
They are stitched together in a rather random way and would make a lovely background for a wall hanging or maybe a pocket on a handmade jacket.

I hope you've all been busy creating some interesting things and trying something different now and then.
You never know...maybe the thing you haven't tried yet is the thing that you can do best.
See you soon.
