Belated Happy New Year……….

It’s been difficult to get back into a routine after the holiday….but I think I’m getting there, finally.  I see lots of classes and new projects springing up all over the blogosphere.  I did sign up for Alisa Burke’s new class that starts next week.  I discovered a new (to me)  craft and sewing blog: Craftsy  I signed up for a machine quilting class and a free quilt block of the month class.  I hope to continue working on my quilt I started about two years ago 😀  My goal for the new year is to finish two larger art journals that I started last year.  One of them is nearly finished. I misplaced my old book with the faces sometime during the holidays.  I found a small book that has to do with loan payments and that will be my new sketchbook for faces until the other one is located.

    Looks like you’re getting back into the swing of things. I always like seeing your face drawings…and I like the collages, too.

    I know what you mean about getting back into a routine. I’m currently unemployed (my choice) so my sleeping schedule is all a mess & my motivation is floundering a little as I enjoy this time to myself. Love your face drawings.

    Beautiful work, Mary!
    p.s. I couldn’t sew on a button – I think I would be in trouble! 🙂
