Mid-July update, and Esme's first faces

As with all summers, this one is flying by faster than I had imagined it would. I've only a moment in between projects, so I'm making this my shortest post ever.

I'm still in home improvement mode, working my way around from room to room, refinishing, re-organizing, repainting. It's pretty gratifying. I've been doing a little (very little) writing, some painting (on canvases), and I'm in the throes of finishing a quilt for Esme. Ada's baby's quilt was done on time. Esme's has been delayed for two years already! Time to get it done. Plus, it's just so inspiring to work with the fabric.

Of course, I am still making little things for an Etsy shop-in-the-works, and things look good on that front. Next week, I will be listing my first paintings for sale.

Esme and Ada are little artists themselves. Esme has been practicing circles for a few months now, and just recently started adding features to make faces. Here are two of her latest beauties. She asked me to put one on the wall, which I was proud to do. We keep looking at it and smiling!

More to come from the blogfront soon. Hope your summer is full of happy moments, too.

The second painting is fantastic with that semi-side angle of the head. I'm impressed!

Happy summer to you, too, Kirie.

Esme's first face looks a little French and face two looks like it belongs to an octopus. She clearly gets her talent from you.

Missing you! Let's catch up soon.

I love the unselfconscious artwork of children. My niece Olivia, still new to being an older sister, once drew a large, long self wearing a somber expression, then a tiny, curlycue'd upside down baby with a funny little grin on it's face. It was pretty funny.
