Another oldie....

hooked a while back as well....under the influence of Karen Kahle, a wonderful rug hooker in Eugene Oregon. It is an incredibly beautiful day here...I think I may just have to go take a beach walk...I can see the sun sparkling on the ocean out my window and the Channel Islands in the distance.....15 to 20 minutes and I am there! Of course I can always do a few errands while I'm down the mountain.....there has been so much going on in my emotional life since the first of the year that I need a break! I have decided to make the Chinese New Year in Feb. my new beginning. I did manage to get my Art studio somewhat straightened out so that at least I can get to my painting table! For some reason, my studio becomes a "store room" for all the stuff that I collect and don't know where else to put it. Then it is too crowded to work in and I take over various parts of the house. The dining room table has a sewing machine as a permanent fixture and other fiber related things and about 5 pairs of scissors. Today I hope to get some felt work done...funky beads and other things....now for that walk....the sea is calling to me!

my dearest mary....

your pieces always call to me.. i adore the little house.. this home. you have such a wonderful way of capturing a cheerful, joyous side of life. i love that about you. your cottage is so friendly... i feel as if i could walk right up to door and step into this world of warm sunny oversize flowers.

i know it has been hard lately... but this art is a sincere reflection of who you are... a warm... wonderful person... giving... thoughtful. don't let your days be sad... you are who you were meant to be...

sending loads of hugs and good wishes your way!!!

This piece is so wonderful, Mary! I just love your work.
I've been very unsettled recently as well and spent today putting my workroom (and house) in order. I like your idea of starting fresh on Chinese New Year.
Enjoy your walk. It sounds lovely.

Even if this is from "a while back", I just adore this piece. Your sunflowers are so happy... and you KNOW I love the bird and heart and home. It's lovely.
My biggest hugs, Shari
