Not ready for this!


SNOW this morning -- I wanted to be outdoors a few more weeks. This weekend we are attending an outdoor, cowboy wedding. The high is supposed to be 31 degrees.

(Below) You are wondering what this is. It's 1 of 4 drawings of a little brown jug, for the Guild Ardis Wannabe (artist want-to-be). I changed it to greyscale, pixelized it, altered contrast, and tried to erase the background. I am foolishly trying something of which I know nothing in Corel Paint Shop. The goal is to reproduce one finished picture of a little brown jug, in 4 shades of the same color. Maybe this drawing will end up my entire project and not make it to fabric. This will involve 4 fabrics - maybe fused and each section cut out and refused to a background. Sounds like a plan but ??? I am posting this especially for Deb who co-chairs our Guild challenge - she'll understand! 8-)))

I want to live there. If it were snowing here I would feel so much better! Is there a Whole Foods within a 2 hour drive of you? I need to move and Chris wants to live in Nebraska.

Those plastic chairs look a little surprised themselves to be wearing a snow suit!

Good luck on your Jug project. Sounds like a very big time-eating computer project. :)

SNOW??!?!? and would you believe here our upstairs AC is broken and at night it's 88* up there where we sleep - it's like we are camping - without the bugs -or so I keep telling myself looking on the bring side of things until the AC man comes to fix it.

All week it's been in the high 90's and extremely humid! Hotter than the 4th of July - hard to believe that other places it's snowing!

Good luck with your pixel project... sounds cool!

Love from Texas! ~bonnie

The snow was so pretty..and welcome moisture. Cold enough we almost started the wood stove fire.

It's raining buckets here - and I think I'd rather have the snow. We've had so much rain this last month or so I'm considering building an ark! blessings, marlene

Oh you lucky quilter to have snow so early. We are getting rain and the leaves are turning. I love the color contrasts in Fall. The beige of the harvested corn and hay fields. The greens of the grasses and leaves.
I bought one good sized but muddy pumpkin. It is getting a bath with the rain. It looks so shiny and clean now.
You must have a computer geek hidden somewhere inside you trying to get out. My hubby likes playing with those picture programs. Not me!

Really neat with your creative project here. And snow? Lordy bee that sounds perfect. Here - oh it's still too hot for me to go anywhere really. 91' today. :< Not good for the M.S. I'm really ready for the weather to catch up with the season. Although, well, I'm just going to be content that the suns up and I'm feelin' fine, how about that?

Warmly, *karendianne.

No snow here yet but it finally froze I think. The snow can stay away as far as I am concerned until a light dusting on Christmas Eve.

Will be interesting to see your jug project as it progresses.

Please take all the snow that you want!

It snowed here last weekend (9 inches) and has dropped more throughout the week. More flakes are falling today. At this rate, I will never get the leaves off of my yard and I will have cabin fever by Halloween and go crazy by Thanksgiving.

Our wooley-worms are dark, which typically means we're going to have a hard winter. BUT...keep the snow for awhile, we're drowning in rain, but we do not want the cold. Our milo isn't ready to harvest yet!

Diane said...

I am soooooo jealous. It is only 94degrees here. That is a 63* difference. Can I come for a visit? Please? I will shovel your walks...

GARI said...

Brrrrrr!! We used to live in northern IL and I really got tired of snow and cold. I have been enjoying the 90 weather we have been having: I haven't had to stop wearing shorts yet. Good luck at the wedding.

Snow here too. I made it back from NE yesterday in a turn and burn. I feel like I drove all day. O, yeah, I did! 4 hours each way. You can do it -- the jug I mean.

an outdoor wedding in 30 degrees
brrrrrrrrrrrrr they sure do breed then tough in the Pan Handle.
Well done with the little brown jug, but beware using programmes like those do get a little addictive, a bit like patchwork lol.

julieQ said...

Brrrr! We have not gotten a frost yet, but it is much cooler here...Hey, what an intriguing new project!

monica said...

I thought of you when I saw the snow on the Weather Channel map. In October? Mercy! It's very nice here in Tennessee, if a bit rainy.
