Doctor's office jungle

 My breast cancer doctor's waiting room is like a jungle! So many plants... I love it!  I see inspiration for stitching, beading, #carvedecember, and stencil making for starters.  This one was next to where I was sitting:

 100 days until the end of the year.  Goodness!  I love being part of a good challenge and this one seems like a good way to clean up some projects before saying good bye to 2021.

Sun prints

Sunny fall days are especially nice for sun prints.  I find it difficult to get outside and play when it is hot, humid and terribly bright.  Yes - give me a nice fall day and I'll play outside all day!  It looks like a perfect week to make prints to use this winter when I need a reminder that winter doesn't last forever.

Quick table runner

 Today I'm heading to my son's for the weekend.  Last time I was there he asked if I could make a runner to use on top of a small cabinet they keep by the door.  Seems that throwing keys and man stuff on it wrecks the paint job.  Funny - that didn't bother him 25 years ago!!

Back when he graduated from high school, t-shirt quilts were the rage.  He gave me his t-shirts, but also said that he would happily wait.  Now it's been 11 years...  So when I finally had a brain storm this past week, I set to work right away to make his runner.  Using the high school t-shirts and Afghanistan army shirts and his request of brown or black - I made the runner also satisfying my desire to try mock cathedral window!  Talk about multi-tasking!

Slow stitching

 It's nice to put a project away for awhile, and then re-discover it months later. I find new inspiration and motivation after taking a rest. This is one of those pieces that may take years to "complete"...

play time with matty

 Playing with mom's neighbor is always fun!  Nothing better to stimulate creative than to play with a 4 year old for an hour.

His favorite part was cutting her up!
