New Pretty Papers!

Last month, I subscribed to "Somerset Studio" magazine - and yesterday, I received this pack of 24 art papers in the mail! There are some really cool papers here to play with. That is, IF I ever get to paint again ....

I haven't posted in a couple of weeks, cause I've just been to lazy to do anything! Then, last week, I decided to start a Prayer Quilt Ministry at church, so I made a quilt and got it all ready for church on Sunday. I also did a little bit of work on the "box"!

So, my goal this week is to FINISH the box! I'm finally past all the curly bits, and am now working on the top - the end is in sight! I truly think it is turning out great - but I will be glad to get it out of my house!

And, on top of everything else, my husband has some cancer in/around his bladder. So, we've been going to Gainesville to the VA Hospital a lot. He'll have another biopsy in early August, and then more surgery after that. I'm praying for a good outcome for all of this.

I have gone to Barns and Noble and treated myself to Sommerset Studio on many occasions but didn't know that if you subscribe you get some fun papers. Did you know they were coming as part of a deal?
I love that magazine; it's so full of creativity.

So very sorry to hear abut your husband's diagnosis, Nancy. My mom has had bladder cancer twice and has had surgery twice on it. I to am praying for a successful outcome for your husband.

I can't believe you've made a quilt so very quickly!! And I do look forward to seeing your completed chest as well. I suspect you will indeed pick up your paint brushes again. Sometimes it helps to get lost in a piece. Many hugs.

Hang in there and let your emotional release and find its outlet through your art. He gave us our art talent fora reason.

We will all be hoping for only the best of news.

I look forward to seeing some new art.
