Summer playing has begun. I love when I can move my work outside and do those things its hard to do inside all winter.
I've started painting some canvas.
I think I'll knit it on some supersized needles to make a net like scarf for wearing in warm weather . Knitting with cotton yarn is kind of weird-it doesn't feel quite right when you are used to wool- but its still fun to do, especially with yarn you dyed yourself.
I am linking up to Paint Party Friday. Thanks Kristen and Eva for being such gracious hostesses every week. Stop by and check out all the great painting going on by some fantastic artists.
I also have a piece for Try It On Tuesday today. The theme is I Believe I can Fly. So I made a journal page.
The words say "Pete loves chasing bugs and he has a big tongue."
Pete is one of our dogs, and I can't say it really looks like him, but I still like how he came out. Its cartoon Pete.
Check out all the great mixed media pieces pieces at TIOT.
The long 4th of July holiday weekend begins here in the US. Its our Independence Day celebrations. The hubby has today off, as well as Monday, the actual holiday, and I think today we are going to be squeezing in a little morning boat trip on the lake before he has to go to dialysis later in the afternoon. I am hoping we motor over to Meredith (which is the town across the lake) for lunch at this restaurant I have never eaten at but want to try.
Other than a little rain tonight it is suppose to be a gorgeous weekend (if you can believe the weather people- it is always suppose to be gorgeous in their forecasts for holiday weekends). I think we have a couple of days of boating planned, both today on the nearby lake and tomorrow on the ocean. I think my daughter's boyfriend is coming along tomorrow, and we've only met him once, so I am excited to spend some time with him to get to know him a little better.
And on Monday we have our annual July 4th cookout out at my mother-in-laws. All of my husband's immediate family will be there, sisters with their husbands, nieces with their boyfriends.
I think by next Tuesday I will need a vacation from my vacation.
Happy weekend everyone!
