Below you will find a couple of shots of my new rug "Summer Jewels", or as I tend to call it, "The Last Big Rug!" I've been hooking like mad for the last week, and this week at least two hours a day. Backgrounds can take forever, but fortunately for me, I'm loving this dusty blue as it contrasts next to my designs. Since I've used several designs and colors in this piece, deciding on a background that works throughout the rug was a bit of a challenge. But.... I'm completely in love with this shade of blue!
Below is a quick shot of our "Big Willow". My kitties think that being on the screened porch is the same as being outside. A couple of our neighborhood outdoor cats like to come to the porch screen door and mock them with their freedom.
I walked along my favorite creek trail yesterday, and was so happy to find clumps of bluebells! I think they are such a gorgeous shade of blue, and just the most delicate little things....... sending you springtime wishes for happy and wonderful days ahead!

p.s. My good friend and teaching buddy Relyn of Come Sit By My Fire is profiling bloggy friends about their personal passions. She has included me in today's post, and will continue with other passion profiles throughout the month of April. Thanks Relyn for inviting me to share a tiny bit of my world on your lovely blog! xoxo

If you've been following my blog, you know I've completely immersed myself in pastels for the past year. I would like to share with you a piece of awesome artwork by my instructor, Audrey Bottrell. She has enhanced my life with her marvelous instruction and patience. I have met new friends and have joined a lovely art group, who are at this very moment, watching over my shoulder as I create this post. I'm currently giving a little demonstration on blogging. Please hop over to Audrey's website and check out her work. Absolutely amazing!
