    I hope to join in this weekend on making a few things.

    What FUN!!!!
    I have not heard that name for years and years.
    My maternal grandmother always called these flowers "The Lady in the Bath" flower, (very close to what your Aunt called them.)
    Granna was very proper, and from the Victorian Era, which is where "The Lady in the Bath" flower name was used exclusively.
    Fond, happy, memories. Thanks for the stroll down memory lane, AP!!!!!

    Day Two

    The first time I have tried a "real" tangle, using patterns I found on timefortangling.blogspot.com/2018/11/

    It is also the first time I have tried to shade a "tangle." WG.5 was too light, WG1 was a little dark. Oh well. I know you are supposed to use pencil but I don't keep fixative on hand so I avoid pencil.

    It is really hard to see, but the inner heart is shaded with light pink and the outside of the heart is shaded with gray. If you are on Instagram you can see it better here:

    I haven't tried fiction podcasts, but I do listen to audio books. Currently listening to Cherringham - a Cosy Crime series by Matthew Costello and Neil Richards, narrated by Neil Dudgeon (of Midsomer Murders). Not free though, sadly, but not expensive.

    Having said that, since I have an account with i Heart Radio, I'll have to see what fiction podcasts they have.

    My first few cards for the art-a-thon. May not get any done today - I have a PT session and then some errands to run. Plan to so some more over the weekend.

    Edited to add - I've attached the images again, but there appears to be an extra attached thumbnail that I don't know how to get rid of. Sorry!

    Love the Valentine you just posted!!!!
    Unfortunately it appears that you tried to post 4 cards, and only one ATC showed up, and I see 4 Valentines in your gallery.
    Maybe try to post here again?

    One of the things I really like about the fiction podcasts is the episodic nature of the storytelling.

    But audio books are wonderful. And I do enjoy mystery/crime books and television. Thanks for the recommendation, Iíll see if it can be had from the library.

    Happy Valentine's! I'm enjoying all the art. I have some backgrounds ready and some bits and pieces also so today I'll be working on chunkies. Hopefully I'll have something to post later today or tomorrow.

    This year our tree turned into a Valentine's Tree. I have done this once or twice before so I already had a few hearts that I had made along with some vintage Valentine cards and small glass balls. I have filled in with ATCs and chunkies on the bottom branches. The cards are only being held in place by the branches but so far it seems to be working. Pink in the predominant color with some shades of red, rose red etc. I'm still adding to it . . .

    Hilla is a wonderful artist and creates so many nice things for me to dispaly.

    I also have a table by our front door that has more art from more people. It's so enjoyable to have it out on display where I can see it.

    Hi! I actually got something done. Was looking for something else and came across some old spray ink backgrounds. And these butterflies. And the heart background is decorative paper with slight embellishment. They are simple but I like them.

    I tried to fit too much in on Thursday which meant that Friday was decidedly go-slow but here are the cards I have now managed to finish.
    These were uploaded yesterday:
