24 & 25 thing a day

I have been busy with several things going as usual, ADHD- ( I am getting meds for it, we'll see if it hurts or helps) anyway day 24 is the painting " Breakfast" and day 25 is the plied angora I am still working on. this lendrom wheel is hard to use the ply for fine angora and hunking it on the bobbin... I am trying to finish just a little bit on 1 bobbin. the other bobbin I will put in a baggy and wait til I move to spin, more to ply it with. I still have 2 whites, to ply. anxiety is taking its toll on my health.

19 - 22 spinning angora

I have been spinning the most luscious angora from Connie Delamater s farm in MD. A great friend and shepherdess. I am also writing a cloth pattern. I was not happy with the first one and tried to fix it several ways, but when I looked at it again today, it looks better than I thought so I am knitting another to check the pattern.
I am not feeling well and can not pin point whats going on I went to the er friday night with the lung disease, now my sugar is running so high I am tired and can not think.. hope it clears up soon.

thing a day problems

This week thing-a-day had a few problems, which was ok as I had gotten behind doing mostly spinning , I need to empty these boxes of angora to use them to pack for moving. yesterday I did paint my gourd and knee- underpainting, they both need more, but thats what I worked on. Had to work today so have not done anything but a little more spinning.

tree and drums doodles

I made paper that I enjoy drawing on and it is made from my pc papers that I would have thrown away, my way of recycling. These 2 are just doodles for 15 & 16 of thing a day. I want to make more paper, I have many trash bags accumulated of shredded papers and egg cartons. but everything is packed to move when the house is sold or auctioned so I can not play with that for now. I am writing a few patterns for cloths that one can use only 1 ball of cotton and make 2 cloths. will post when I finish, it will be a while, designing this is new for me. hope all had a great weekend. my older son Fred took me on a casino ship for V-Day. we won and lost all day and had a good time. My younger son Jayson e-mailed us a picture of one of my g-daughters, she is a doll.. made my day !!

plein air, gym, drums on the beach

Forgot the camera !! Today was my day. I joined the gym for the 12 week -free, choose to loose challange- hope to drop 30 lbs, I had gained back.. exciting.. then I walked on the beach for about a 1/2 hour sat in the sand and just enjoyed the day- 60s and sunny. Then our Plein air group met at the art attack, adult ed school to promote the art classes they have and to sketch out on the 21st world wide sketch crawl !! I did 3 will post later , have to take a pic etc... met a great kid named mathew that played drums- which was leading up to my next adventure for the day, I went to drums on the beach, and he was going so I knew someone ( even though I just met him). Drums on the beach was so fabulous, excellent, exsillerating (spell?), I loved it. The moon was the fullest it will be this year goreous, campfire- how cool is that and people beating drums, shakers, tamberines - it was mezmerizing, I can not wait for the next one.. They have it once a month and I am so there. !!! again forgot camera, got a few pics with cell phone, do not know if they are any good until I unload. what a great day... needed that.
