Punching and Paddling

I decided to make a new piece with the sheep design. This one I added a date and the word, wool on the sheep.
I also used a higher height for the design and border and the lowest height for the background to give it a sculpted look.
I like how it came out, it reminds me of old siganage. It will be up for sale tonight, on my ebay site.

I am working on the patterns. For some reason the scans did not come in as good as I planned, so I have a bit of cleaning to do, so I can give you the best possible graphic when you print them out. They should be ready this week.



Today I was finally feeling good enough to get out and go paddling. And, the weather was perfect for once.
We went to Burlingame state park. It is a large lake and lots of shallow waters, so I can paddle and jump in for a swim when we get too hot. It was really nice getting out in the boat, finally and enjoying the water and scenery.

I love being out on the water! It's so peaceful and serene!

We had cooler weather here today though...it almost felt like fall!

Thanks for the kind comments on my bathroom too! I appreciate your visits!

Have a great week!

Debbie, I'm lovin' that punched sheep. So cute and the colors are so perfect.

I also so enjoy your pictures of your paddling. I would never be able to do something like that but I can live it through you, I guess.

Hey, Debbie - the sheep design looks fantastic!!

Isn't it nice to have a few good days here and there? Today was another rainy one... The summer that never was!

Hope your table works good for you. I need something to get me motivated! I've been in a funk for a l-o-n-g time now!

Talk to you soon,

Debbie, love the Fraktur sheep pattern and imagine it will be a Have to Have ;) before long for me.

The kayaking looks like such a peaceful and athletic at the same time way of life... Jo
