A list of lessons


(a new take on an old piece)

*I can't saw in a straight line
*No amount of sanding can straighten those wonky lines
*I have very little patience (especially when things aren't working out the way I want)
*I love my sweetest Stu
*He is the master "saw man" and can saw in a VERY straight line
*Sewing makes me happy

(can you see the gritted teeth haha!)

(wood mounted prints for my upcoming display)

*on Fridays there s no better place to be than Paint Party Friday :)xx

  5. I have a sweetest too that can saw straight lines. Which is great for me because I don't care about straight or exact measurements. But most people do and that is why I keep him around (and he can cook too!)

    Your panels are beautiful. And your stitched postcard is so awesome!

    Have a great weekend!
