Hi everyone. It is quite cold this morning, and a little grey, but I am having a an enjoyable morning. I love a lazy morning when there is nothing compelling I must do. :)
I love lounging bed reading for a couple of hours. I must admit it's a little guilty pleasure.
I haven't seen the show but I have been enjoying the book. It's a light read with lots of photos (actual historical photos and show photos). Now I want to see the Netflix series. Guess I need to "borrow" my daughter's Netflix password and take a watch. She'll be home next weekend so maybe she'll be interested in watching it with me.
Yesterday my screen porch got it's winter plastic covering. It's always a sad time, but it is the right time. Seeing yesterday we barely hit 32 degrees (0 degrees C). I would have raked those leaves but most of them were frozen on the ground.
I think I am slipping into hibernation mode.
I started knitting a sweater with yarn I bought last summer. It will keep me busy while I lounge next to the woodstove or watch TV.
And this lady helps keep me warm while I read. She really wants me to shower her with attention. I guess since she's a good girl she does deserve a rub. :)
So an the arty side of life, I managed to get 2 of these giant books that were on discard in my school library.
They are each huge volumes of around 1000 pages and the bindings are in excellent shape, so they should make good art journals. I can either rip out all the pages and have a good thick binding or I can rip out half the pages and have a book to alter. :) Lots of choices.
And I do have a journal page to show you. I am linking it up to Chris's fun challenge at Art Journal Journey.
One way to stay warm (in the 101 Ways to Keep Warm challenge) is with a nice cozy quilt.
I am also linking up to Try It On Tuesday and their latest challenge with is Home Sweet Home.
I had a lot of fun just coloring all the quilt squares. The above photo doesn't show the stitching I did on the page, so let me show you one that highlights that.
It's still a little hard to see the stitching but you can see the threads. The black stitching on the edges is actually a stamped image.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend also.
