Twentyfive things

Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.(To do this, go to “notes” under tabs (or the + sign) on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your 25 random things, tag 25 people (in the right hand corner of the app) then click publish.)

Rainbow Fairy

Partially done fairy, using paint (acrylic fabric paint including irridescent and pearlescent) cotton floss and seed beads. I do not know the name of the artist who did the painting that originally inspired this. I loved the radiant yet soft colors so wnated to see what I could do with it. It changed considerably when I sketched it but I tried to stay true to the colors. Now I am trying to figure out what it will be. I'm not a quilter but think maybe this will be stitched onto a darker background fabric and see what happens from there.

ring around the moon

It took my breath away! Laurie told me it was caused by ice crystals and that's right. So much magic in a little ice crystal or two? I promise myself I will examining the moon every night She is visible to see what else she might want to share with me.
There are coronas, pillars, halos and rainbows that she sometimes displays as well as rings.

See Keith Cooley's moon page with lots of interesting stuff by clicking the link above. (Ring around Moon)
