Hummer

Hummer

    I, finally, had the courage to work on the hummingbird watercolor.  I added metallic, gold paint to the pigments to give the bird an iridescent look.  This went better, than I thought it would.

Doily

Doily

      Finished the doily in time for the fair.  It measures 12" across.  It's from Jan's, "Tatted Treasures," pg 63.  This has been on my bucket list, from the time I received the book.  Maybe, one day, I'll make the matching flower picture that goes with it.
