May/June Update 2 (plus July)

Well, it's the middle of July and I'm still writing about May and June. Oh Well. Actually, not a lot of writing. Mostly pictures of the jewelry I have been making when I wasn't reading a book or watching all eight seasons of Supernatural on Netflix! I honestly did not expect to like that TV show, who knew? Anyway, this is what I have finished in the last 2 1/2 months:

Oh, and I forgot I have also been working on some quilted/embroidered pieces for as yet undetermined future uses. I may use them for soft handmade book covers, coasters, little keepsake bags, pencil cases, mini wall hangings, etc. Not sure. I sit and work on them when I watch TV and as they stack up I think about what I might make with them.

May/June Update 1

My craft activities have been hit and miss the last couple months and somehow I never got around to posting anything about them, but I have been doing a few things.  I finally finished a set of four Butterfly collages that I started sometime in 2012. 

As I worked on each collage I improved on the processed I used and was happier with each completed piece. After I finished this set of four, I decided to continue working on this theme idea and prepared four more background canvases for more Butterfly collages.  These backgrounds are again collage on canvas but with paper and paint instead of fabric and paint. I plan to make the butterflies again out of fabric collage layers. 

I'm not sure when I'll get around to finishing this second set of collages. Hopefully, it won't be another year from now, but I'll be sure to post something when I complete them.
