Full Day

So, it occurs to me that I have not sat down since my feet hit the floor this morning!

I’m taking care of two neighbor’s cats and watering their plants daily in this heat!

I swam and walked at Hillsborough Riverwalk with a friend!

Listed a new Stitch Kit in Etsy and worked on a house portrait.

7 pm I’m in bed!!

Sun

Heat of the bright sun

Radiates off my skin now

After a shower.

Art Prescription: and these are two shower days! Biked this morning and then walked this afternoon.

For an indoor cool activity I did list a new Stitch Kit in my Etsy shop!

This one is for kids and beginners! So fun!!

Weather

A jacket in June?

Warm layers for rainy walk

Smell gardenias.

Art Prescription: I don’t ever remember needing a jacket in June. It’s usually sweltering hot.

This is a pattern made from acrylic paint, a stencil, and colored pencil. Now I’ve made mini cards to go in my Stitch Kits.

Building Blocks

Roof without cover

Garden with freshly tilled soil

Plans for the future.

Art Prescription: All projects start with plans. As you build, you reassess each angle. Measure twice, cut once.

I’ve just listed my next Stitch Kit!

Introducing: Wren

Sketching

Rain pours down, sideways

Umbrella threatens to flip

Inside out with wind.

Art Prescription: Here in NC we’ve had a nice long cool spring. So nice.

I drove to three stores today to find hoops for my Stitch Kits. Ended up at JoAnn Fabric and waited in line outside with my mask and gloves. Only so many people in the store at one time.

Since I was there I picked up a couple of new fat quarters of fabric.

Next design: a bird:
