Raining Buttons

It has been raining most of the weekend here in the Pacific Northwest.  I find doodling in the evening keeps my hands busy and I enjoy creating patterns and playing with color.

I created these two pages of circle patterns recently in my new art journal and they remind me of buttons:


I found this quote on the internet:

“I cannot count my day complete, ‘Til needle, thread and fabric meet.” – Author Unknown  I used to find joy in cross-stitch, then beading and now mixed media art…

For me today, “I cannot count my day complete, ‘Til pen or brush and sketchbook meet!”

Wishing you a Sunny Sunday, Friends…

“In the crazy quilt of life, I’m glad you are in my block of friends!”  – Author Unknown

Cheers!  🙂

  5. Love your buttons and the quote. I did some lino carving while it rained but at the end of the day I sketched what I was carving. We had very little wind just rain and some glorious rainbows.

  6. Aww….love that quote, if I didn’t see that comment above, I would have blown right by, a reminder to take it slowly. In this cyber age, we are all in a hurry, inadvertently, your post has reminded me to slow way down and enjoy what I look at or read. 🙂 Isn’t this weather awesome? I know for you further in the NW, it has been more intense but we are feeling it. Love your doodling, what a wonderful way to spend a Sunday, enjoy the rest of it, my Pacific friend. 😉

  8. Enjoyed your quotes and your “buttons!” Personally, I am hopeless with a needle and thread. Sewing on a button is the extent of my talent in that area. I always thought cross stitching was quite beautiful-like painting with thread! Sounds right up your alley.😊
