This is my favorite painting this year. It's not botanical, but I was so touched by a picture of this kitty, that I needed to paint it. They eye "liner" is a bit dark, but I think it gives a focal point.
I'm also working on a crochet shrug that I found on Lion Brand's website. It's Vanna'ls Glamour Bridal Shrug, pattern number L32000. I'm using a white cotton yarn because I plan to wear it with summer dresses.
I really like this pattern because it's a lot of repeats. I'm better at knitting garments than crocheting, but I think this one will turn out well. I spent the morning flipping over the pool and folding it because it's too late in the season to open it. So I threw down some grass seed where it sat. It's supposed to rain today, so...perfect timing. I also planted two rose bushes that I got for $5 each!! Busy morning!
