Very nice, Terri. When, in my spare time LOL, I want to go to some of the paint parties here on the Island. There are a lot of different artistic classes available. Just finding the time to get to them is the problem.

Yes, they are acrylic paints. Like painting with them as there is no odor.

Terri that is cute. Is it acrylic paints?

My Vino and Van Gogh picture that I painted last night.

Well, will try again to post. For some reason first did not go through. Yes, Cuenca definitely has lots for the artist do do and lots of things to see and do.

Ally, think the word you are looking for is pointillism. I agree with you on seeing more of BB’s work as she does some wonderful pieces.

Cindy, sounds like you are keeping busy even if there is no creativity involved. Guess you could say painting the deck could be creative. When you start sewing again, hope you post completed project.

Will Post the Vino and Van Gogh picture when it is finished. My crafty group has obtained a place to turn into a gallery. The owner will not charge rent and wants nothing in return, although we are going to give him 10% of all sales and he will handle transactions when no one is there. First Féria, or show, is Sept. 18th, s need to get a lot more of my drawings framed, perhaps even frame a few photos, have to see how well my printed does as it has been acting up.

Cindy- sounds like you are very busy getting your canning done. Tonight when it cools a bit will be making my red pepper jelly that I give out to my sewing buddies at Christmas. I started a few years back so I get big hints and they return my jars so I know they like it! Also making freezer peach jam today. 

Terri be sure to post your finished parrot thread painting.

Here are a few thread paintings that I have finished for upcoming show in November. And I will post a picture of the one I am working on right now when I finish it.

Great projects, Terri. As Ally said, you have a lot of opportunities to attend some terrific  classes. You are certainly staying active and involved. 

Look forward to seeing your latest project, Ally. It will be a treasured gift for your brother as and SIL. 

No TP or sewing here as yet. My time is being spent watching grandson and keeping up with our garden. Relatives are getting jam, jelly and o th her various things made from our bounty for Christmas.  Have 15 pints of potatoes on canning right now. Made relish the other day. Feels good to be doing this again. Once the weather changes hope to get back to my machine. Oh, and also am in the process of painting my deck and eventually my house.

Terri- thanks for sharing your lastest read painting project, it is lovely. Aren't the inktense pencils and block great to use. 

Pit sounds like the area you live has a lot of things going for a artist and different workshops. You'll have to show us what you did at the Vino and Van Gough class.

i know it is not thread painting but BB does beautiful art with the pointillist not sure what it is called.  I keep trying to encourage her to show it on here.

i have finished a couple of thread paintings I will have to post them. At the moment doing a thread painting for my brother and SIL for their 40th wedding anniversary. It is taken from a photo he posted.

I have started a thread painted art quilt based on a colored pencil drawing I did of parrots. Painted the background and one of the parrots. The other parrot will be thread painted and then attached to the quilt. Have just about completed the thread painting on the limb. Finished a thread painted appliqued wall hanging I call Creation. Thursday night I will be attending a Vino and Van Gogh class, should be fun.
