Ending 2011 & beginning another year

I am ready for the new year to begin.
I begin a new series on skies.
Winter skies, Spring skies, Summer too.
Morning skies. Sunsets. Storms.
The list is endless.
2012 here I come.
Being in the studio for hours on end is my goal.
But first a day of quiet with my mate of 49 years.
Good by 2011.

Winter or Spring?

My daffodils are up 4 inches.
They think it is spring.
Next the Robins will be back.
Maybe we are going to skip winter this year,
I got the furnace room cleaned.
7  large black garbage bags of junk
boxes and etc.
Now I can go to the studio without feeling guilty.
Got my work done.

Studio time again

Time to go back in the studio.
Christmas is put away
Just have to clean the furnace room
and than I can create all winter.
That is if we ever have winter.

Softly falling snow.

 Overnight the snow started to fall quietly.
Finally looking like winter.
 It coats the branches and falls on the butterfly wings.
Marks the pathway around the garage.
Today I will finish taking down the Christmas decorations,
Than to the studio for some serious creating.
Finally 3 months to myself to vanish into the studio.
Making sky related art.
Making landscape quilts.

Best gifts ever.

My children know what I like.
Quilters see a different star at Christmas.
My DIL found the 8 fat quarter  star of batiks.
My Daughter brought me 8 yards of fabric.
I can see the water,trees, and sky in these fabrics.
They were too generous.
My granddaughter gave me a Raku vase,
Grandson Andrew brought 2 spicy candles
how did he know I do not like fruity or flower scents.
My sister brought new towels to the mix.
My friend Doris gave me 2 canvases.
Plus I received gift certificate to Hobby Lobby
in case I need more art supplies.
A lovely bird calender.
I am truly blessed.
The best part was food, fun and laughter
of 22 people together for Christmas.
