making the most of ...

It's on its way. The dreaded white stuff. Or at least that is what they have been telling us for a while. It's hit the Windy City so it is on they way. Hopefully will stay more north. Let's face it- Cleveland and Akron are used to that stuff. I was raised in Akron so I should know LOL.

So I'm making the most of the last of the colors, I saw a Woolybear catipillar and it was very black on each end with not must brown in the middle- mild and short winter...if yu can trust that sorta thing. But it is Ohio. The Lord asked Job if he know where He kept the snows in storage once. That I could answer- in Ohio for at least 5-6 months of the year.

That being said, I have painted yet another fall pic. My Grandson gave me a gift this morning- a pretty brown maple leave. It is always a treasure when a young child gives you a gift. Even if its a dead leaf or a dirty o'ld rock. 

I have been given the honor of being loved by someone who has no money to buy a gift so he gives what he has found from his world. And it will be pressed into my Bible with a note with a date. I feel sorry for my heirs. For when they go through my cedarchest looking for some great thing, they will inherit a very large box of weed flowers leaves and rocks. I hope they love them as much as I do! LOL

Anyway, Here is yet another "playing in the paint" of leaves...

Wow, that is beautiful! I hope the snow misses you too. I just got plowed out this morning from our snow yesterday and the temps are really dropping. Brrr

Thank you very much!!! :) It's that nasty cold rain that has a quiet little tick to it when it hits your car window that tells you its not all rain lol and ya, its getting colder. Oh well, the sooner it gets here the sooner it can leave :)

I would also treasure the leaf. Nice painting   

Thanks! Very much! :) I have a whole yard full of them but this one is awesome! LOL

Nice art work Sis. Zoey-Mae. What is one person's treasure is another person's junk. When children give, they do it from their heart. Bro. Doc

Thank you! and Yes they certainly do! :)

Have a good rest of the day. Bro. Doc

Thank you very  much! Its been a good day hope you have a blessed weekend with the Lord! :)

Good Afternoon Sis. Zoey-Mae, tomorrow will be the fellowship in our Assembly. We will also be honoring our military vets. Sermon will be the second part of Hebrews "Yahvahosha and the Messengers". I am doing a series of sermons on Hebrews. This is the best day of the week. Always glad when it starts at the end of Friday and we have 24 hours of rest, study, worship, singing. Take care and I hope you either do not have snow or very little there. Bro. Doc

Gifts given from a dear child all their own, are the most precious.  Treasure them all.  This painting is beautiful.  I love the colors and the  delicacy of the picture.  One of my favorites <3

Thank you! And I get blessed twiced because I get to share it with you all! :)

you have the best treasures of love

I think so too! Thanks! Hoping you have and awesome day!

O' lovely I really like that. 
O' yes snow... here in PA we had rain/snow mix today but it wasn't bad-mostly rain, as I walked to appointments. Pant legs were soaked, what I get for being shorter with too long of a pant leg lol... but glad no snow on the ground yet. Hope we have a mild winter with very very little snow shoveling. 

Thank you- yea, our weather was like that today too. My daughter has the same trouble with her pants :) same reason too. She is four foot something, not quite 5ft. and her big brother is 6ft. he gets it from my side and she gets it from her dad's LOL :)

I'm 5'5" 1/2 (that 1/2 is important lol)... but my limbs are shorter...my daughter & I are the same height yet she can reach everything & I can't..her legs & arms are long...I must of missed the line when they were handing those out LOL 
My mom will see me & say you need to hem those pants girls..I'm like I know I know... it's a pain & usually breaks a needle in the machine so I just step on them. 

I gety that! I sew a lot and needles breaking means one of two things- either you are pulling the fabric too hard through the machine while sewing or your tention is too tight. A needle that is too thin will do that too as well as one that is already bent on the tip. :)

If you want a easy cheat other than sewing by hand- fold them under and staple them. Then use a marker to color the staples so they don't show.

This will work in a pinch but remove them before you wash so you don't snag the fabrics. I was a seamstress for our highschool and summerstock in college. LOL

Thanks for the tips {#floating.gif}{#thumbs_up.gif} Much appreciated.

Today I cut the fabric & batting to make bowl cozies for my sister's holiday gift. I've tried them 2 other ways and didn't like the thickness (different material inside) so I got the microwave kind of batting and will give this a whirl to see if I like it better. 

How goes the cozy wars LOL any luck? Thought of one other thing you could try. I normally use this for a Bible/book cover... I use a quilted placemat. You just cut and sew 'cause the quilting is already done and they come in such pretty colors and prints. For a bowl cozy you should be able to get two to a mat. :) 

Let me know how it goes! :)

O' that's a good idea on the quilted placemats. I'll have to try that.

I made 6 bowls. 1 with that insul-bright in it & warm batting, (too thick was a pain), next tried just the warm batting, (it was okay much better), but then I went & got the microwavable batting... this was the best to work with. I don't want to microwave but they can be but the batting was nice. Especially since you have to pin them with all the darts together. It was the first time I ever made bowl darts but I did just fine. :)

So I got 2 reversible bowls for my sister.'s gift that are very nice- one side is navy blue the other side is navy blue with white deer print. I made the the size to hold a normal like cereal bowl type. Will see if she likes those before I bother making her bigger bowl ones. The 4 bowls that I wasn't thrilled with work totally fine & look good-not perfect but I seem to be the only one who can see it's not perfect lol so will just use those at my house or give 2 to my daughter to use. :) 

How's it all going on your end? what's project you working on right now?

I'm soo happy for you! Oddy enough I have not been sewing this winter yet. or even started my baking LOL. Since my last painting with Gracey and Walter, I have been doing research about Ireland and have just about finished a new childern's story about them. 

I'm as crazy about my writing as I am with my painting. I want it believable, though it's children's fiction.

They had started out in taken place in the Northern part of Ireland- Glenvegah National Park but since I have started this one I have changed that to a place closer to my ancesteral homeland- Cork. Red Abby to be precise. 

The only thing left of the abby is the bell tower. Which is great because that means I caan make it "look" like anything I want since the story takes place when the place was active abby. 

Ok you asked... an Irish writer a question, afraid you are getting a novel for and answer LOL! 

I gottta tell ya one more thing before I stop. I found my most favorite Disney short and got to watch it yesterday. It inspires all my art.

WD's very 1st Silly Symphony: The Old Mill. It was released in 1937 and featured the song "One Day When We Were Young" by Strauss.

Best 9 mins of film every made! (its on Youtube if you wanna see it) 

O' that's very cool. I love children's stories and a friend of my writes them and wanted me to do all the art for it (since I draw, paint etc...) my style art is much more cartoon rather than realistic. 

I think it's great you put that kind of love & knowledge into your stories.
I have Irish family lines on both my dad's dad side & mom's mom & dad's side. :) 

Daughter & I just started watching the BBC show "bellykissangle" based in an Irish community... Here's what it's about   

A young British priest adjusts to life in a rural Irish community where life revolves around the church and the local pub. Everyone knows everyone else's business, and everyone usually has an opinion on it. While characters come and go, the small-town qualities remain.

It's good so far :)

Ireland is my top 3 places I want to visit. Our friends just went there like 2 years ago. They regretted that they stayed in the tourist sections to do stuff & didn't actually experience more of Ireland as it truly is. 

O' cool.... I never seen that of Disney. I'll have to look it up. :)

That is cool that u have Irish on both sides of ur family. I'd love to go there one day too. :) I've see Bally kiss Angel. Its a great show.

Yes, it seems like a very wonderful place to visit. 
O' that's cool. Glad you liked it. I look forward to seeing more of it when at my daughter's visiting/hanging out. 
Hope your story is going well for you. 
Wishing you a lovely week & holiday season. 

Thanks! :) Hope yours is nice too! :)
