I just can't help it.... I love witches. Well, let's just say that I love all things Halloween, instead. This week it is witches, next week, it may be skeletons! I have been organizing a work room to sew and hold ALL of my fabric (I could open a store) and unpacking family treasures from my Mom's house. It is a great task, indeed. I am finding treasures long forgotten, both family and made of my own two hands. I came across some sketches of my "Goodie" witch series. Aha! The concept was there and with a little tweaking, this gal was born. That in turn set off a whole new bunch of inspires.... I think I need an assistant sometimes, I have soooo many designs.
Another subject, very dear to my heart is the classic crow. How many ways can you make a crow? As many as it takes, I say! I absolutely love this one. A touch of realism, a unique 3/4 view done with simplicity. Both of these offerings can be found at TDIPT Mercantile.
The Summer is going at breakneck speed with family events. Tim's family has now grown with the birth of Great Niece, Maggie.
His Niece, Julie has married also ~ what fun that was! A big welcome to Sergey ~ We've learned a few things of his Russian heritage. I learned that I'm not fond of caviar, no matter how expensive it is.
Tonight, we are all waiting and ready to welcome another new member who has been taking his time getting here. We hope that Wee Baby Daus gives it up and gets here tonight. He will be another Great Nephew for Tim.
The days are going quickly and are filled mostly with blessings and joys. Like anyone else, we have our share of bumps, but thankfully, nothing major. We have watched so many dealing with a heat wave, so much worse than ours, along with wildfires and damaging storms. You will find no complaints here. Instead, a great appreciation for all we have ~ for the daily simple joys, for health and family, and for the ability to work from my home. It took a lot to get here, but I appreciate that I can enjoy the love of Primitives that have become my heart and soul.
