Flower #5 flower doodle

Thank goodness it is Friday. Even though I work for a few hours tomorrow. I’m glad to have most of the day off. I really needed the break from the past few days.

It is raining with a nice breeze. I smell food from outside. It kinda smells like fried potatoes.

I spent the day watching movies and tv shows. And cross stitching. It’s been too long since I picked up my needle for stitching Derby.

Here is where I am at now…

What’s next?

At least one less column! I had to return to the fabric store to get more DMC colors. And I bought a new color of yarn…I want to knit an oversized wrap to use at my office. It gets cold in my office.

That will be another post in the future.

I did yoga and finished my doodle flower drawing. It done on a 9″x 6″ paper.

I will be concentrating on finishing my next painting.

And the rest of the month will be starting and completing a large flower painting. You will have to stay turned to more posts to see it. Sneak peak is coming soon.

(maybe I’ll add in some small flower paintings)
