Give away closing on Friday

I will draw a person times two from my battered old cap.
 It is getting worn out, do not want to put it out to pasture though
Ends Friday
jazz up a moleskin front and back with a pocket

Not really a project, but a give away

 I did make a video, and it is on YouTube
A bit of easy summer fun, even the children like making them

By the way, Lilikoi plants are Passion-fruit vines, you need two, so I show them both below.

This is a give away, I will send out a bundle to two winners
The address is only needed when your name is drawn,
Either email to me or put in your 'happy to win' comment

I hardly ever receive an address,
cannot search about the net trying to find you

for the phone

a cell phone pouch with shells from the Islands, and lots of old silk and beading
That is glove stitch around the top. Remember how to do that?

shell pouch


I  have been given 2 new Lilikoi plants
So thrilled.
Here they are so cross my fingers they have fruit
Nice and green and cool looking when it is so hot and humid in the Islands

Cuff from the Nomads

I have created a little collection of items using antique trinkets
They are items I have collected in Asia minor.
  Had them a long time and need to use them.
I love the look of tribal and nomadic art
So.......I made this cuff from sari silk, old dyed textiles and an interesting metal piece.
The little bells tinkle merrily

Exemplaire a Monet

I created this booklet of paintings and quotes by Monet
He inspires me a lot when I make pictures and drawings.
In the back I included his color palette only 7 colors
