I've been through a weird and busy week, filled with dull jobs
and unpleasant things that needed to be done urgently
this is my top 3 against little nervous breakdowns when your
free time is rather limited:
1 watch a good movie
2 take care of your plants and make sure there are always
fresh flowers in your house
3 make small walks in your neighborhood and take your
camera with you.
Painting balls also helps; those on the photo had a three layer
The rider in bearskin comes from 'True Gritt'.
Have a nice weekend all!

When looking back at my flickr pages, I'm a little embarrassed
about the poor quality of my pictures, especially those of my
sampler are really no class, brrr.
So, if the weather is ok, I mean, when there's enought light,
I will try to make some better ones, soon!
The pictures here are from a small piece of sampler; I was trying out
some leaves and flowers in different stitches; the black shapes are
a combination of crochet and embroidery, it was fun to do!
The cute cat is Amy, Luc & Zjé's pet, love the black pads
under her right leg :^)
Have a nice evening & sweet dreams!

Finally some sun today!
It gives me energy :^)
I was painting balls for a new set of mobiles,
played with the blocks for a while,
then browsed in a book of Oscar Schlemmer
and made some pictures of the light that occasionally
lit up my room.
I tried a few compositions with the wooden
plates, but I'm still not quite sure what I want.
We'll see :^)
Have a nice weekend all!

New life and wild times gone by...
I've got a few stems of an umbrella palm to take root; they're
now for about two weeks with their leaves down into the water,
so I wonder when the first roots will appear.
Maybe tomorrow :^)
What about the the Nepenthes, could it be a carnivorous
becomes harmless once he's domesticated and cared for? The thing is,
the plant is doing very well but makes no more traps; the last
one was about two years ago and has now completely dried.
Or is it just laziness?
I would do the same of course!
Goodnight & Sweet dreams :^)
Tree of Life, love!!!

Strong winds, thunder, rain and hail almost the size of a
stayed indoors for two days with a sore throat and a running nose,
wrapped in a woolen blanket reading
Manhattan Transfer and browsing some magazines and photo books
I wish for a bit of sun, no wind and a peaceful thick carpet of snow and then
make a nice walk in the woods!
