Scratching into December


Monday we organized and rearranged furniture in the house
for a dinner party on Tuesday
Five golfers and their wives.


A natural dyed scrap stitched down because it was my friend Diane's birthday.
She's my natural dye and mark making companion.


Handy Hubby flew off across the pond at midnight


Not a very creative week stitchwise
but we have scratched our way into December.
The year is nearly gone.


Goodness me
it is flying by.

For those of you in Ontario
my 'Rusty Gate'
is in the show 'Tradition in Transition' at The Joshua Creek Heritage Centre.
A show curated by Sandra Reford who has done a yeoman's job
taking the show to France and now to Oakville.
If you click on Sandra's name you will see her write-up about the opening
and over at Judy's journal you'll see more photos.


Have a nice day.

    1. So glad you've enjoyed the scratchings...It has been quite a surprise to me at how much I enjoy doing them. Never was any good at writing a journal! Oh, those Mondays...the start of a new work week...I remember the feeling.

  6. I too am wondering what will happen next - will you carry your scratchings over into 2013? I, for one, hope so. Wish I was able to get to Oakville...

    1. Yes, I intend carrying on. One day I will have a show about them hopefully. Next year I think I will have a sketchbook with notations to go along with the scratchings.
