Morning Chores

An extra hour in my day works wonders for me. First thing this morning I checked Lady Cardinal and can report that all is well and maybe we will have babies this weekend or shortly thereafter. She was off the nest and so I took a quick look see to make sure there are still three eggs. Yes.

Then I cleaned a little mess I left in the kitchen last night. Fixed my to go lunch and while I was at it I removed that open package of frozen okra that has been there ForEVer and that I know I'm not cooking and also the package with only two frozen hush puppies. It's gone now and that was my major chore for this morning. Makes me feel so good to get these things done.
You probably need to go find something of the like in your freezer too. Let it go.

I knew what my morning art was going to be so I got ready for the office before starting. That way I can play right up until time to go. And yes, I painted in my best clothes.
I have a project in mind with fabric. It's something for me that I need.
It has been on my mind for a while and today was the day. I pulled out some fabric scraps and plastic doilies and acrylic paint and this is my altered project fabric. My day is so much richer when I start with ART
Real works calls,
Expect me back.....sharon


  1. oooh I love the look of this. I recently have been gathering things to do some fabric art. It's been too long that I haven't worked fabric. I will be anxious to see what you do with it.
    Where do you find those plastic doilies, I can't seem to locate them anywhere. They are so much more open than the paper ones.

  2. Well Sharon, funny we are in sinc again. I just this morning before reading your post went through my freezer downstairs and found a few things that look fuNNy! This was done before reading your post!

    These are interesting looking art pieces you have going on!

    Thanks for the Cardinal update

  3. I love your altered fabric, can't wait to see what you are going to make.

  4. I love what you made first thing too!

    I got your painting and print Sharon and they are gorgeous! I especially love the tall houses and the tiny words on them. Those words are mine now and I love your paintings! Thank you so much!

  5. So glad to see you painting on fabric and with the plastic doilies. They are hard to find, but well worth the search. I got a long square one the other day I am anxious to use, if I can stay home long enough to find out where I put it! Glad the bird eggs are safe and that you are watching them for all of us. Now to go check my freezer.

  6. Sharon I gasped when I saw these photos... your altered fabrics are never cease to amaze me and I just cant wait to see what you do with these.

    Scrummy, rich, delicious, busy fabric... love it!

    p.s. you are so organised in the mornings.

  7. I can so relate to the random junk in the freezer. I can think of about three things I should probably throw away as I'm typing this.

    I am very envious of your stenciling. Mine always looks a little "off". Have you taken the stenciling class by dispatchinla? It started this weekend. I'm so excited!

  8. You must be very neat not to get paint on you...I love the fabric art you are starting.

  9. I'm rolling on the floor - I must go check my freezer but I'm afraid of what I might find in there! Okra, huh? I really love cornmeal fried okra which I haven't done in years. Love your art!

  10. Which reminds me... I need to ask my MIL to find some plastic doilies for me. She is a professional auction attender. :) Not really... but she goes to a lot and delights in finding our requests. :)

    Love your altered fabric!! Whatcha making? :)

    LOL! - I can guarantee you I don't have okra in my freezer but I do have a lot that needs thrown out. :p

  11. Can't wait to see what you do for your altered fabric project. We wait with baited breath.!

  12. Hi!!!
    I am a spanish girl.
    Your thing are beauty!!!
    kisses from santander(North spain).

  13. Hi Sharon:

    I am sitting here with a lovely shade of green all over. As I have been having visions of acrylic paint on fabric. One can have these vision while watering and picking many things in the garden.
    I of course love what you did. Also that long fabric with the great design on it. I have some skirts from a thrift store that is also making me want, you know about want and you just go ahead and do.

    I also threw out things in the freezer that were bugging me.

    On vacation we visited a potters home, I saw a long piece of wodd haning in his studio tnat had the bark gone and lovely patterns on that bare wood from insects. He used it for designs. I was quite excited as one could use that for stamping also. Great background things to interet the viewer.

    I have to come back when I have a little more time, so much to see here and so many things to read.

    Such creative interesting work.
    Such a lovely person to talk to, that is you.

    Hot in the North and Dry, Emelie

  14. Sharon, I LOVE THIS PAINTED FABRIC!!!! And, I'm so glad you decided to paint it...even in your good clothes. Also happy to hear that Lady Cardinal is well along with the little ones...I've been waiting to hear about about the we all have that kind of stuff??? It appears so. I'll remedy that immediately! You certainly can get our enthusiasm up for the oddest things...isn't it FUN? thanks, and stay cool, pat
