Halloween is almost here

With fall in the air and the end of October approaching, Halloween isn’t very far off. Here is one of my bird images from a few years ago. The original was done in colored pencil.

New Cross Stitch Designs

Spring  Time Cross Stitch Design

Spring Time Cross Stitch Design

Throughout my childhood and early adult years I did a lot of sewing and stitchery. But over 30 years ago, I moved on to do other forms of art. Recently I thought it might be fun to make some cross stitch patterns from my designs. There are 4 designs I am working on and will be making kits from these designs. Here is the first one, it is called “Spring Time”. The original is a colored pencil design.

It has been fun getting back into doing cross stitch. I’ll have some kits at my holiday shows.

School started here in Sequim today so I thought another image might be good. This one has only appeared in the calendar I did a few years ago.

With the hot weather upon us, think about taking the family to the beach for some fun. If you can’t go, then dream about it as you look at “Family Day at the Beach”.

Irrigation Festival is Here

Irrigation Festival Parade

Irrigation Festival Parade

The 121st Sequim Irrigation Festival is starting tomorrow. Until the late 1800’s the Sequim area was a dry prairie. In the mid-1890’s irrigation ditches were dug to bring water from the Dungeness River to the prairie. This began an agricultural revolution to the area. We celebrate this technological feat to this day. you can learn more about the history of the Sequim Irrigation Festival from our website: http://www.irrigationfestival.com/history/

The Irrigation Festival runs over 2 weekends from May 6th to May 15th. This year I am one of the co-directors of the Innovative Arts and Crafts Fair, one of the many events of the festival. The Innovative Arts and Crafts Fair starts May 6th from 5pm-8pm and continues Saturday (10-5) and Sunday (10-4).

In honor of the Sequim Irrigation Festival, I did this colored pencil drawing many years ago.
