I have been behind on other projects this spring due to an unexpected injury. My old , blind and deaf jack russel terrier, accidentally bit my left index finger while I was trying to get a stuck Denta stix out of the roof of his mouth. I thought it was nothing to worry about until three days later it was still very swollen and starting to hurt down into the palm of my hand. So, a short trip to the emergency room ( I thought.) the day before Easter turned into 3 days in the hospital and surgery on Easter Sunday. I guess my tendon was involved and infected thus the big ordeal! I must say my finger is still not right but thank goodness it wasn't my right hand. I must thank my husband for doing all my chores I couldn't do for awhile
I have managed to get a few things made for art competitions coming up. I also have finally gotten some of my flowers and garden planted, more to go. I also completed this portrait in acrylic for my son and daughter in law of their dog that they had to put to sleep .
I also have had a gourd for quite some time that was speaking to me and saying it wanted to be a garden fairy!! I finally acted on that notion and Echinacea was born!
She is very worried about the butterflies and bees in the world due to overuse of pesticides and herbicides. Therefore the sign she carries in one hand says go organic!! She is for sale if anyone is interested.
Until next time....
