Wooo Hoooo!

I was just released from jury service which means that my Spring Break Stay-cation starts a day early!

I've finished the vines for Love Entwined and am ready for some leaves & flowers.  Although I used bias strips for most of the vines, the bottom vine that forks into 3 for the flowers, I did as back basting rather than fuss with all the short stems.

Bright and early Friday morning, "Momsicles Popsicles" gets pulled out of it's hiding place and is my sole purpose in life for the next 3 days.  This is one of those projects that ends up spread across 3 rooms while I work on it, and requires a chunk of time without distractions in order to make progress.

I actually have a good bit of that orange popsicle pieced (after I took this photo), so my progress should look impressive.

Check out Terrece Beesley's website!  She's the artist who gave me permission to reproduce this great watercolor painting!  Her prints (as well as the original Momsicles Popsicles) are available at this link.

I hope to be able to make some daily progress posts over the next week!  Hope y'all don't get too tired of me!
