sewing / drawing


Here it still sits. I've got to get started on this project of mine. And it looks like I need to clean those windows. / i forgot to send this on friday. it rained on friday so our teacher brought in her dog for us to draw. it was the first time i had really experienced drawing a live model and i really like how it came out (even though it's near finished yet). she was so cute, she stayed in the same position the whole time. i know evee couldn't do that! haha now that you know it's a dog i'm sure you can tell what kind.

i am just like ELK except i like only my dog and one other,and i couldn't sew my way out of a paper bag. i love Taylor's painting not finished, please give us a shot of finished. how does an artist know when a painting is finished?

I found your blog through a comment you made on andie's blog. I love the name "spread your wings"
A mother/daughter blog ~ how cool that you are doing this together!
My daughter is only 4 but we dream of all the adventures we will have together and cherish the ones we are having right now.

hello Leslye, (aha, you know andie... i love the marvel that is blogland lol!)
your profile description nearly made me burst out crying - our eldest son left for university (200 km away) in early march this year and since then i have been finding therapy in making aprons for everyone i know (to help me "cut my apron strings", or at least let them stretch a little! i am weird, i know, but it helps my world keep turning...)
we mostly chat on skype or texts.
what a wonderful idea, blogging together!
looking forward to a wee peep inside your worlds.
love and sunshine

i knew it was a dog the minute i saw this! look at her little toenails...well not so little but i could see that lovely swoop of her leg. that's a lovely image and your excitement about he project is wonderful to read about :)

If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
