(a close up of Dulcy's collage...wallpaper, beads, vintage emphemera and more.....all stuff in Sheri's awesome stash!)
I've had so many perfect days lately I'm positively giddy!

The pattern is from Nola and I do think it's an adorable pattern. I've tried to put my own spin on it, by changing a lot of the lines and making the colors coordinate with Cleopatra.
I took several pictures of her in different light and took them with me to help with the colors while I was hooking.
I'm sure I'll make changes before I'm all finished, but it's nice to start on a new project.
I have finished the "Swirly Tree" rug. I'm not 100% happy with it's shape...it seems a little wonky (see how the bottom right corner kind of drops down more?) and I think I just need to steam and tug on it a bit more, but here is a pic of it. Also, on the horizon line on the right I need to pull out that little piece of peach that snuck in there....funny how well you can "see" things when you photograph them.
The beading is fun to do and adds another dimension to it. Also the rolled strips that I used was also fun....I guess this is what I would call a "process" rug....trying out new techniques on a smaller rug before jumping into something larger.
Now for rambling.....I have to renew my driver's license on Wednesday, so today I left work early and ran around trying to get all the documents that I need......
Social Security Card
Something that proves your residency such as a utility bill, paystub, etc.
Not sure if I need my wedding license or not, but I'm taking it with me just in case.
On the good side, got in and out of Social Security in about 5 minutes and the same with the health department.....YAY!
Go forth and be creative,

After we left Nokomis, we headed back to Venice beach and found a place to park....we looked and looked for shark's teeth, but came up empty handed. The sand on Venice beach was a lot more black than the other beaches we went to. Interesting how you can go not very far and the shells and sand are so different from beach to beach.
Another perfect day

Notice the sweatshirt, Toto, we're not in Florida anymore! Can you tell that my hair is getting longer on the top?
