100th post.....

My 100th post....that deserves a Give Away methinks!!! I cant believe I have been blogging for 2 years now (yes its taken me that long to get to my 100th post!!!). Please leave a comment (making sure I can contact you) if you would like to go in the draw for my one of my Wee Owls or maybe a Klimt Doll - the choice will be yours. I will announce the winner in my next post which will be in a weeks time.
Meanwhile, some *slow* progress on my slow cloth... Since my last post it has grown from 61/2 inches to approx. 15 inches. Our life revolves around horses so I thought for my first block I should include a horse image. I've been playing around with placement...not sure if I'm happy yet. The triangles (trees) are offcuts from a quilt for my son, but I am not sure about them yet. I will play a little more before I stitch anything down - it could look completely different next time you see it! I have been carving some stamps again. Below a couple of little owls.

And below another little owl who is winging his way over the Tasman.

The weather has been quite strange...maybe that is why I have been feeling a bit unsettled lately...a reflection of my environment?


An eerie but beautiful dusk.




The colours were just beautiful, but only lasted a short time. Click the photos for a closer look.
Have a wonderful, creative week.

What beautiful pictures Jacky. I really love the country and one day would like to move to the bush. Sunsets are the best in the country. Congrats on your 100th post. I reached mine without realising so I thought I'd wait for a giveaway on my 200th which is shortly. I love your owls they are so cute. Take care

Congratulations on your 100th post Jacky! (well done you). Your blog is always a pleasure to visit. And I am *loving* how your slow cloth is progressing. How apt to have horses in your design.
Love the photo's of the sunset too.
And the stamps you are carving are brilliant. Adore those owls.
I won't put my name into the ring for your generous giveaway. As I am blessed to own lots of your lovely art already.
A big yay for you!!

Catherine V. Bainbridge said...

Congratulations on your 100th blog. here's wishing you many more to come!!!

I love this square, the gentle color palette, what a delicate combination. I like the trees as they are.

I know those strange dusk skies... usually right when there's going to be a storm. Everything goes a kind of weird golden color. I actually don't like that too much! But your photos of it are gorgeous.

Ooooh a giveaway! Maybe I'll be lucky this time! Fingers crossed :)

Zorana said...

Congratulations on your 100th post. I'm so glad that Dot convinced you to start blogging. I'll have to find how many I have, I don't think I ever noticed the number. The owl stamps are very cool! Also - I'm in love with the "eerie but beautiful dusk". Lifting my glass of green smoothie for many more posts to come! xo

Lawendula said...

Such lovely artwork again. And another cute little owl on its way...
And great: 100 posts!

Suzanna said...

Hello Jacky...100 posts! That is terrific. Your owls remind me to go look at the burrowing owl which has a special preserve near here; I've not visited them yet and would like to be in the drawing for one of your wee owls.

I like to see you playing with the horse cloth, just following feeling. Great stamps! How do you make them? I love it that you printed on text.

Your fabric piece is enchanting and I love it. I love horses too but I'm not a rider. I just like to look at them and go to Saratoga Races to see them. Your photos are gorgeous. I can't imagine, are they in your back yard?

Hi Jacky. Thanks so much for the comment. I can't seem to get my head round online classes though, I wouldn't know where to start! and I am very much a ''hands on'' person. I am not ruling it out completely though, Karen
