February is a busy month….lots of number crunching to do.
But, this week was filled with a NUMBER of other wonderful artistic excursions.
Thursday night I got together with friends to drink a little wine, talk a little art, and keep the hands busy while doing the above, at the bar.
Leann set us up with the craft of the evening….black and white thread, black and white felt, scissors and needles.
It was fun for us and the other patrons to see us girls stitching away….coming up with some rather unconventional (of course) and interesting results:
Janice’s….looking like an industrial building in Detroit:
Leann’s happy skull, using her much admired chain stitch fill in:And my whatever…thinking GRID….result: oil rig platform….…..On Friday, my friend and neighbor Patrice and I wandered and lunched in Northville. It was a sunny afternoon, and it felt so good to be out and about. We meandered through the different galleries and the Northville Art House….
Both of these outings were great medicine for the winter blahs and recharging the creative batteries. Highly recommended……get yourself on a field trip!
