A hodge podge post

I thought I'd start this post off with the ladies in red. They are doing what they do best...napping. This is "their" chair in my craft room. At least they provide company for me when I'm painting. Even though I have to turn the Ipod up sometimes to drown out Ruby's snoring, it's still nice to have their "support".

Today's high was only in the low 60's...chilly for AZ. Here they are soaking up the sun. It made me laugh to see them sitting there like a couple of old ladies. They have the life, don't they?

Above is a set that I did for one of my favorite customers, Jen. It's on it's way to the UK.

This is my messy work table after an all day painting session. Being a fairly neat and organized person, this made me cringe when I stepped back from it. I had to go grab my camera.
And here is some Harriet progress. I know this picture is just awful. I tried to take it without much sunlight left outside. The gate is really different. It's all done in satin stitches. One of these days, I need to get back to the A&E, but I'm enjoying this one too much right now.

Oh your companions are just sooo cute! There's something about them in those pictuers that just says contentment! lol! I still think your work table doesn't look a bit messy or disorganized. And your Harriet! OMG! Spectacular! I can see why you're enjoying her so much! I'll just sit here and drool all over my laptop now......

Your 'girls' are so sweet! Yes, they do have a grand life, don't they? Harriet is wonderful. I can see why you can't tear yourself away from her to return to the A&E.

I always love to see what you have been painting. You always come up with new great designs.

Great progress with your stitching.

Your girls are too sweet. I imagine they are good company through your stitching having only men in your house. I don't know what I would do without mine.
Good heavens, you must be the most organised painter I have ever seen, and I have seen many. Harriet is looking prettier by the day. I can see why you cannot put her down. Happy stitching and painting.

The bunny set--FABULOUS!! So is your progress on Harriet. :)
