wall hanging for a neighbour. She wanted
something with yellow and green and
flowers. I used some small tulip
serviettes from my stash,
glued them with gel medium to
the canvases, and then gave the edges
a coat of paint - finished. I mounted them

not really impressed with them, but the
recipient loved her hanging, so that's the main thing!
At this point I would like to welcome the nice ladies of
the T gang. We had snow this morning, so I was outside on
my balcony before it was light taking photos. I mounted one of them

And I love making patterns in my soup - perhaps
I'm in my second childhood!?
And this bread twist was delicious - filled with tomato and cheese,
and with lots of seeds on top!
My Scandinavian bird hopped down to have a look:
And the rocking horse came over too - I think she wants
to send best wishes to Elizabeth & her boys.

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
