Prothonotary Warbler

I'm back at last! Sorry for the long absence. Lost my blogging confidence for a little while. I've set myself a new goal to keep my posts regular. Hope this birdy will brighten your day! He looks a little chunky but I love the colors. What do you think?

Fresh Blueberries

I love this time of year when blueberries are 2 for 1 (for the big box!). My son and I also love to pick our own when we have the time. Here is a watercolor I painted; I like the color contrast with the unripe berries. Have a lovely day!

An Old Dog and her Couch

Happy Birthday Molly! Fourteen wonderful years!! I just ran across an old children's book called "Amos: An Old Dog and his Couch" by Susan Seligson & Howie Schneider, and I thought the illustrations looked just like our Irish Setter Molly, who just about never leaves her couch any more. Lest you think this doesn't count as craft bloginess, look at that lovely quilt Molly is lying on, made by my Mom and sister. Many of the fabric scraps they used came from leftovers from sewing clothes for me when I was a child.
