Hi - I have been busy lately and it has been a while since I have posted anything. We went on a trip to the Bay Area to visit with family and I was able to go on a lovely garden tour in Palo Alto, CA. After forgetting how to use the macro settings on my camera, I finally found a manual and was able to play with the macro function to photograph the flowers on the tour - what fun!! Here are some close-ups:
I have also been working on a doll that I am donating to a fundraising event for a local Montessori Charter school. Her name is Carmela (inspired by her caramel colored skin)! She is a petite 14 inches long. Her corduroy jumper was upcycled from a lovely baby dress that had beautiful embroidery and smocking details. Here are some pictures of her before she heads off to the Mother's Day Tea fundraiser:
This weekend will be busy again for me because my 9 year old son turned 10 and we will be celebrating!! I'll be working on a new doll and we will also be having 3.5 cubic yards of topsoil delivered so that we can plant some grass seed under the area where we hang our hammock. I had a bunch of concrete removed from that area and am looking forward to trailing my foot on the grass as I spend some lazy time reading in the hammock this summer!
I hope you have a lovely weekend!
