A scarf and a painting

Hi you all, thanks for all the welcome back messages you left yesterday! I didn't get too much done; I unpacked the cases, sorted stash back into the right places, and got the shopping, including my grilled chicken! Today I will do the washing and in between running up and down the stairs to the washing machine I will make my postcard for Darcy's postcard challenge on Friday.

Today I want to show you the last scarf I made in Bad Honnef, and another picture that I made for one of the docs there. I used acrylic paints in several layers one over the other, adding details with some sequin waste and pen and ink. The Hebrew writing down the side says *Keep me as the apple of our eye and hide me under the shadow of your wings*, (Psalm 17 v. 8) hence the wings.






So, that's all for today, I will be back tomorrow with some crafting *made in DĂźsseldorf*. Have a good day you all, take care and thanks for visiting!
