Waiting for the bus...

A dark picture, but I like the soft blue of the sky in contrast to the branches of the tree. This is one of the early Fall nights, after the change from Day Light Savings Time. It's that strangeness of it getting dark so early, when just a couple of days ago it was light.

More of Fall...

More fall photography. I color enhanced this one on Photo Shop, which is the closest I can to painting at work (don't tell anyone).

New Crochted Purses...

I spent a good part of the Spring and Summer making these crocheted and felted purses. It was
fun and at the same a learning experience since I made each one up from out of thin air, so to speak, using no pattern (except for the smallest one, which was a pattern from Lion Brand).

The part I liked the best was making the felt appliques. All that sewing, stitch by stitch; it becomes very soothing and meditative.

Each one is also lined in a printed cotton fabric, that I didn't include with this post. You can take a look in my shop.

Thanks for taking a look!

Fall colors

Waiting for the bus home the other night, I got caught up in watching the leaves and branches of this tree moving in the wind. It was very calming, even mesmerizing.

And then, last night while waiting, I caught the clouds moving slowly overhead. I like it when the clouds are low and it feels like you can almost touch the sky.
