On Monday, Jes and I drove into Chicago for a family visit and trip to the Art Institute. I've had a protestant religious project floating around in my head for some time and keyed in on a few pieces of religious art. This triptych was behind glass, so there is a bit of glare 😞.
We had a wonderful day exploring the museum. I hadn't been in a few years and Jes hardly remembered his last trip. We must not wait so long before going again.

Index Card a Day... This, I have been keeping up with! It has been fun looking at old photos to pick out one to stitch into a card each day. The prompt for this one was, "yellow". I used an old piece of batik fabric from my stash for the background. I mean, really old... I can't even remember the last time the art girlz got together to create batiks! Anyway, it is now used and out of my closet. Yes!!!

It seems that blogging keeps moving to the bottom of my to do list. Why? I find time to stitch each day, garden, eat, exercise, play, etc., but the computer doesn't get turned on. It's too hard for me to post from my phone. I think easing back into the routine with a post each week may be the answer.
Let me tell you about my grandmother Helen. I came across this photo of her the other day when I was looking for pics to use for the Index Card a Day project. Imagine riding a horse while wearing a dress! And just look at those shoes!
