Freezing by the Dock of the Bay or Sew What?

yesterday i decided to bring my lunch to the park.
not such a good idea on the picnic front.
freezing!  my tuna sandwich was eaten in my van.
but i did manage to stay outside long enough to
take some pics of the view i enjoyed while inside
my warm car.
i even managed to share a bit of crust from
the bread with the gulls.
it was a little break on a sunny day and i felt
re-energized when i got back to my studio.

here is what i finished yesterday.
i started working on this collage a few days ago.
it took me forever to get all the different elements to a 
point where i was happy with how they
played against one another.  i went for the
ribbon trim because this collage in particular
feels a lot like a patchwork quilt to me.

Any preferences?

Friday Photo-Op: Juicy

It feels as though Spring is trying
hard to break-out and decided in honor of that attempt
I would share with you this eye-popping photo which I took
in a friend's garden.
Enjoy your weekend which will hopefully be filled
with lots of colorful moments.
As for myself, my weekend will be spent doing
some celebrating of my husband's birthday with
Indian food, a movie or two, and hopefully
lots of photo taking.
