Another week goes quickly by

Another week gone, still I have little time to are some highlights.
Emili was visiting and created this safety poster for the annual Quad Graphics poster contest. Last year she won first prize, see this post. This year's theme is distracted driving...... Her poster reads"don't get stuck in the web of distraction" and features distracting objects caught in a, hamburger, dogs, construction cone, etc.

I have been using up many small balls of crochet cotton. Making bags.

First, I made this huge tote, unlined, it is for me.
Then I made a smaller purse,
linedand then a drawstring bag, also lined.

I have the urge to make a few more, but I am almost out of crochet cotton.

What is this strange photo?
It's my slippered foot, and leg and belly. the wind was blowing too hard,

I was trying to photograph a project I am doing with oil pastels...maybe when it's finished.....that's all for now.
