It's "Maker Monday!" 
... my series of posts where I feature something the daughter or I are working on, 
and encourage the maker lifestyle.

So. I am posting my "Maker Monday" post here, on a Tuesday... 
Sorry I missed posting yesterday, but I had a horrible migraine (still lingering)...
But I am so excited to share with you my daughter's painting that she finished. It was a commissioned piece, and I think it's absolutely amazing. The frame is a resin material frame that we picked up at yard sale this summer.... painted silver now, it goes wonderfully with the painting. The lady who ordered the painting was so impressed, she has commissioned a 2nd piece.


And I have managed to make 3 more scarves out of the remnants that were gifted to me... which means I have a total of 10 new scarves completed, and several more at a friend's shop that I will be picking up in a week or so if they haven't sold. I have been naming them all after books I cherished as a kid... and am thinking of offering them in some sort of fundraiser for our local library.
Here are the most recent ones completed... Seuss (red), "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" (dark blue wool) and "Treasure Island" (brown and teal variegated mix).

And for those of you who follow me on facebook, I've been doing my Holiday "Give-Away" and am up to day 8?
I think of giving away something I've made. I hope to go through til Christmas Eve.

See you all tomorrow...
