I’ve saved the file of the winter barn before I add Christmas things to it. Late to be working on anything for Christmas now. But, it took awhile to make everything balance (a lot of counting lines and spaces) and then fix everything else once I had it balanced. I could have left it wonky, but out of respect to the early barn builders, I wanted to get it as right as I could.… Read the rest
I haven’t made (or finished) anything new in awhile. This isn’t much but it makes me feel a tiny bit better to have something. A little ASCII art queen, with crown and sceptre.

My Mother’s birthday is coming up so I made a flower. This isn’t the one I’m giving her. A bouquet of real flowers will be delivered for her.
New flowers. I wanted to make a lot of flowers and put them in a Valentine. But, it didn’t work out that way. Instead they are in a frame, like a painting. Fun to make them and I didn’t have to make it all fit into a heart shape.
