Wine Barrels with Herbs

My half wine barrels are brimming with my Herbs
& tomatoe plants too.
Not bad, considering this is in the Mojave Desert.
Love it...


This is called Xeriscape Landscaping ... NO GRASS.
Our St. Francis statue oversees it all ...

My Izannah Walker Workshop Doll ~ Tamar Angevine

Not much to look at ... but, I have finally started the doll pattern provided in Dixie Redmonds Workshop.
Am using Wool Roving for stuffing and can't wait to start sculpting.  
Again, these will be named after a very distant relative ,
and will make two just in case I need spare parts
Tamar #001 & Tamar #002

My First attempt at X-Stitch


I recently finished 'Dutch Strawberries' ~ My first attempt at X-Stitch.
I love the Strawberry Motif. Soon I will be starting another Sampler with strawberries 
'The Heloise Williams Sampler'.
I really love this one and wanted to experiment with a smaller one first. Guess I am hooked.






Next is getting it framed

... 

It will fit a 5" x 7" frame.





*** 

 O.K. ... It is framed.


Actually, I decided to mount it on 'Acid Free Foam Board' myself.
The frame was purchased and I am totally pleased with it. 
It has a Tortoise Shell faux finish look.
