Orchids

My friend, Kim, is a whiz at anything having to do with a needle and thread and has made award-winning quilts and other textile pieces. Recently, she helped me out with a sewing project and happened to need something new and cheerful to hang in her house, so we bartered our skills. Because she grows lovely orchids, I thought this subject would be perfect.

We both love our new pieces! Have you ever bartered with a friend? If so, what did you exchange?

Draw A Bird Day, August 2019

I’m a bit late in posting this bird; I posted it on Instagram on the 8th but am just now getting around to posting here. Cattle Egrets are native to Africa but somehow reached northeastern South America in 1877. They continued to spread, arriving in the United States in 1941 and nesting here by 1953.

I’ve been working on some larger pieces lately and will share those soon. Hope your August is going well!
