Scavenger Hunt Sunday…


Another week gone by and here we are at Scavenger Hunt Sunday.  Prompts this week were:  Asian, Wavy, Draw, Soft and Texture.  Here are my entries.

My son Evan, who is now working at Quinnsigamond Community College (YAY!), was on Spring Break this week so we went out to lunch at one of our favorite Thai restaurants, The Thai House, in East Brookfield, Massachusetts.  Here’s my cup of tea for ASIAN.



Nice WAVY, green lettuce:



A few years ago, Greg got me some drawing lessons for Christmas.  I went faithfully for about six weeks until I ran out of the free-to-me lessons and then I quit.  I enjoyed the lessons a lot and worked fairly diligently while I was taking them, but I just couldn’t keep up the discipline of practicing once I stopped taking the lessons…sort of the way I was with the piano as a kid.  Oh, well…  Here’s one of my practice DRAWings that I dug up for this Sunday.  Note that I decided to draw one of my favorite things,
 implements for coffee making.



SOFT yarn…I am in the middle of making an African flower afghan.



I brought these forsythia branches in last week to force and they are a nice bit of cheery yellow in our kitchen right now.  I took them back outside this morning to take their picture and used a bokeh TEXTURE that I found on picmonkey.com to jazz them up.

You are endlessly talented. Love the coffee makers. The afghan is pretty. What can't you do? Do you sing too?

Oh, you don't want to hear me sing. I am one of the people who in high school, Mr. Svarda would have asked to lipsync. I cannot sing and cannot play music except on my iPod.

Nicki said...

wait, what, you have forsythia? You are definitely ahead us in the Spring department. (and with all that snow - amazing!!) Great drawing and I do really like those colors in your yard/afghan pieces.

We have loads of forsythia but it is not blooming outside yet. I forced this one to bloom by bringing it inside in the warm (well, relatively warm) house. It's pretty.

Brian King said...

Great entries (as usual)! Love the detail and colors you get in your close up shots! It looks like you have some drawing talent, too.

Deanna said...

You are just full of talent, drawing, knitting, photography. I am duly impressed. Your drawing is nicely done, love the knitting and your photography is always spot on.

I really need to get a forsythia...mom always had it and when I see beautiful pics like this, it makes me wish I had some.

Jean said...

love your drawing... i feel the same -- i loved piano, learned it, but lost it b/c i didn't play enough... i have too many interests and want to try everything.

knitting/crocheting is something i want to learn (eventually)... again, too much things i want to learn.... *SIGH*
