Productive Sunday

I may have mentioned that High Fiber Diet is having a show of small, journal-size (8.5" x 11") pieces at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship for the month of December. I made a couple that were pretty uninspired. (Here's one of them.) So today I decided to make at least one more. I have made beetles before. I like beetles. Maybe they are trendy. I keep seeing other people's beetles. Jane Davila does great beetles. Anyway, I like this piece better than the others I did. The other two were both abstract. I admire other people's abstract work, but I think I do better when I do representational work, even when it is an un-natural beetle.

I also put the binding on the Good to Be Green piece today. I am losing my binding prowess. The binding is a little wobbly. I need to work on it.

I have been communicating with Sandy Donabed and Rayna Gilman who are both doing kitchen renovations. Well, Sandy's is actually finished and it looks fabulous. Rayna's been pining for a $1000 faucet. Yikes! I had no idea such a thing even existed, but her comments about faucets sent me on a faucet hunt and raised my awareness of what constitutes a good faucet. All this led me to eBay and today I bought a faucet on eBay. I hope it's a good one. I got a great price and it looks awful nice in the picture. Then I went to Lowe's and got the stuff to stain and finish my oak table and oak boards to make a leaf for the table from. I am spending money like I had it.

Now I am going to go fix a tasty dinner which will not contain even a hint of turkey.


  1. this beetle is wonderful and I love the background too...

  2. Love the beetle! Yep, no idea what it is about them, but they are great!

  3. That is one great beetle. I love the background.

  4. I'm in serious lust with your beetle! Now if someone would come up with a beetle-inspired faucet we'd be all set. Can you imagine a metallic, matte-ish finish in a rich color? Yum.

  5. Love the beetle-very colorful. However, all pales in comparison to the stunning Sofia. Glad you had a great Thanksgiving. It's all about the holidays now-kids make it a wonder agin.

    I love this piece...the colors are great and there is something about beetles...especially colorful ones like this one.
