Scraps are like old friends. I open a bin or drawer and I think" oh, I remember you". This is a tiny bit of the scraps that live in my closets, drawers, cupboards and plastc bins. I pulled this small lot this morning with no particular project in mind. Not very tidy. The table is covered but you get the idea. I need to sort them and if I`m lucky an idea will come forth. Over the last month I completed placemats and hot pads for my kitchen table. I have lots of WIP`s I`ll share in my next post. Mostly Halloween and Christmas projects
This was last nights sunset. Awesome colors and I love the starkness of the Joshua trees. I`m honored to live in this beautiful area.This is looking towards the Lost Basin mining claims area. There was lots of mining in the 1930`s and earlier. We used to metal detect the old dumps and camps. I don`t know how they coped with the heat 100 years ago. Clicking on the pictures will enlarge them.
This is my favorire sunset picture of all time. Same view, same Joshua`s. My husband snapped this picture after a late afternnon thunderstorm in 2008. He walked outside at the right time. Many of you have seen this picture before.
I`m still working on the major yard clean-up. I start about 5 in the morning and stop shortly after sunrise. I have allergic asthma and despite wearing a mask, if it`s windy I go inside. That limits my time. Lots of wind lately. When I`m inside I`m chasing the cat out of the flower pots.
Thank you for visiting.
