Little things

I've been playing around with some little things. This is collaged and painted paper. I've also been playing around with some embroidery. The next challenge is to combine the two. I have some ideas about that.

I've also been doing some little tasks. Like weeding out the 8 gajillion pounds of clothes I moved into this house 4.5 years ago and promptly never wore again. And I've been to the recycling center twice today. The second time I remembered to take a picture of this big collage they have hanging from the ceiling. It's made of recycled stuff. Cool, huh?

The recycling center is on the wrong side of the tracks. And I got stuck for a minute on my second trip. But I'm taking time to appreciate little things. Like sunshine, tulips poking up in the yard, how sparkly my car looks since I went through the carwash on Wednesday. And this opportunity to photoblog while I waited to get back across the tracks.

Nothing worse than being on the wrong side of the tracks!

I'm not ignoring you, Nikki, but have been going through my own little rough patch. And having to rake another 12 bags of leaves hasn't improved my mood much...

But spring cleaning - Bravo to you! It should help to shed some of the old in more ways than one. And yes, the sunshine has been wonderful. The dog has been forcing me out into it when I break for lunch and it has been grand.

Coming up for air - will have some journal quilt pics on blog soon and an e-mail off this week for sure.

Gee, too bad you didn't have a few more French knots to do while you waited!

Love the paper!
