Patchwork Beasts....

Am pretty psyched about participating in Jude's patchwork beasts workshop.

I can't wait to transform some of my favorite beings and non-beings,(bears, corgis and whatever!) into fabric.   Can't you just see Gizmo as a patchwork beast??
 Or how about some of the grizzlies and  black bears I saw in Montana?  Perfect.

This is going to be quite an adventure.  The workshop begins on July 15th.  It will be great fun to follow along with the "traveling companions: on their blogs - while we take this journey together.
Today - I'm looking forward to spending some time in the art cave.  It seems like weeks since I've been in there.   So while my husband is bbq-ing, my daughter is getting ready to go back to UNCSA tomorrow and the corgis are (what else..) sleeping - I will be doing something with maybe my journal, or my trip photographs.

 Something that makes my heart happy.    Looking at this picture I took in  Glacier, Montana where I was a week ago today - makes my heart happy. 

Do something that makes YOUR HEART HAPPY today.

I can so see Gizmo as a little beast! Fantastic pictures. I hope you were at a safe distance of those bears!!

I did I did!!! I rode for about 4 hours...through the cool maples along the back roads of CT. I smiled and sang to my helmet the whole time.
I think corgies will make "perfect" little beasties...Have fun!

I definitely can see your Corgis as fabric beasties! Can't wait to see what you do! Love all your pictures--

Went out on the boat today and fished a little and watched the fireworks--made all of our hearts happy!
