Here are a couple of closeups.....sorry about the blurring:
I am toying with the idea of beading the centers of the coneflowers....what do you think? I did not put a hanging sleeve on the back of this one, and am thinking about stitching three loops of black braided rayon cord (top left, center and right) across the top and then using a small wrought iron hanger.
Then I started puttering around on the yet unfinished "Rusty Gusty". I've decided to add a few more photo transfers of my mother's family, plus some text from their immigration papers. I hope to have more to show you tomorrow. Barker is going to get groomed and C is having breakfast with his buddies and then running errands tomorrow morning, so I'll have some productive time to myself.
We are having roasted root veggies (parsnips, carrots, sweet potatoes) plus scalloped oysters for dinner tonight. Our friend Durwood gifted us with the most wonderful Pacific Oysters...and I know they are going to be terrific scalloped, as they were yummy raw last night. It is very cold here: the windchill at 4:00 this afternoon was 15. BRRRRRRRR!!!
