Colorings…

A friend of mine mentioned that I hardly ever post pictures of my colorings, so here are just a few.  I love to color, it’s relaxing, creative and gives my hands something to do when I’m watching TV.  I use gel pens almost all the time but also colored pencils as well.

One of my most favorites is this heart one:

Mine and My Mother’s…

I’ve done a lot of these counted cross stitch maps of the Vineyard and each one has been for a special person. This particular one was for my daughter Patty for Christmas 2008. Imagine my surprise when I looked in a long forgotten box and found the one below done by another very special person in my life…

… my mother. She must have done this over 80 years ago and it is in amazingly good condition. Thank you mom for a beautiful surprise.
