Time is slipping by!

I can't believe it is almost Easter!  Where does the time go???  Maybe that is what happens when you keep busy!  Anyway, I have made a lot of tote bags for the ETSY store and also managed to finish the saw painting for the 4-H club raffle.  I have gotten lots of nice feedback on it.

Here is what it looked like before I started!  Not too attractive and probably wouldn't saw much wood!

Here it is after it has been cleaned up, sanded, and primed with rust preventing primer.


And here is the finished painting!

Since I don't do a lot of painting, I had to mess with the paints and brushes a little before I got the hang of the technique again.  It is a scene from the Rogue Valley here in S. Oregon.  Table Rock on the extreme left, Rogue River running through the middle and a nice big bull elk watching over his domain on the right side.  Our 4-H club will be selling raffle tickes for $5.00 for one and 7 for $20.  Several people have expressed interest already and my wonderful grandson already purchased tickets!  There are a lot of hunters around here, so maybe the tickets will go fast!  We will be selling tickets for a couple months.  (The proceeds go toward getting rewards for  our 4-H kids.  Tack is spendy!)

My next project will be a quilt that has to be finished for graduation.  I have purchased all the fabric so now the fun starts!  Hope the time doesn't get completely away from me!

Thanks for stopping by.  I would love to hear from you, so leave a comment below if you like.  And here is hoping everyone has a blessed Easter!
