It sounds like a great name for a project to help floods, hurricanes, earthquakes or other natural disasters. But I was just thinking about clearing the last few sewing projects off the dining room table so we could go back to eating in here. It's funny how your mind wanders, isn't it? The title would be a good one to help the military as well.
This place looks like a little of each but the battle is between my priorites. How do you separate the things you need to do from the things you want to do. Sometimes we're lucky and it all comes together, clearly it's a disaster of some sort....creativity seems to come with it's own debris field so I'd better start clearing this one up before I move on to other projects.

I went to find my sketchbook and came across this photo of my tulips so I used it to decorate some letter paper and drew a tulip on the envelope. With the sketchbook on hand I reached for the lilies and ended up drawing lilies around another letter before settling down to start some regular drawings.
Having the pencils handy I eventually settled down to do a serious drawing of the lily, unfortunately I did it on a note card instead of in my sketchbook and I ran out of room on the page.

After the sewing the sun came out again so of course I headed for the garden. Here are a few of the latest pictures:

I did this oil painting about 20 years ago and just sold it recently. As I thought about this image I'd always wondered what it would have been like if I'd made other color choices. Doug ran it throough the computer and came up with these:
I printed these pictures because I was curious to see what they would look like together and of course since I had the photos they had to become todays mail which of course made me think that they would make a nice set of notecards...which made me think...
Well, you'll just have to come back and find out-won't you?

It's funny but with all of the other fresh flowers I have to work with I just kept thinking how much I missed growing sunflowers this year. No matter what else I tried it all came back to sunflowers so I'm painting this and reminding myself to buy plenty of seed for a border of them next year. It's a lot more fun than a privacy fence and the birds love it.
Meanwhile as I looked over the flowers and the photos of them that I shot, I decided to share the garden with an Aunt and Uncle so the little pencil drawing was on the corner of the envelope that I sent the letter and photos in. I didn't draw anything on the letter itself because I had a cute little garden themed folder to fill and write on. Yes, mail is my very favorite thing!
