Clematis Flower Pin

The pin size is 4" wide by 3 3/4 " height.


I designed a panorama of Marianne. Friday we biked
and made it to the end of the bike trail in Springfield
Corners and went back to the parking lot in Middleton.
The weather was beautiful It was about 12 miles round
trip. We had pizza at the Roman Candle. She never had
been there before. The pizza was wonderful and we ate
on the sidewalk.

Farm scene


The last stop we looked at the teardrops in
Sun Prairie. They are so cool and we hope
to have one someday!

April Photo

It was taken at the UW Arboretum in Madison.

April 2007 BJP Page

My April BJP Page is done. It is a Magnolia.
I used canvas photo. It is free-hand without
looking at photo. I love the warm color of
dark dusty rose flowers and brown leaves.
It feels like Autumn. Hard to believe it is
almost September.

August Update

It has been a very busy summer for me.
I wasn't happy with my March BJP page. My girlfriend,
Georgia told me to work more on the fabric background.
I was impressed. It is so much better that it was before.
I am done with my May BJP flower pin this morning and
right now I am working on the fabric for the background.
After I was done with my Clematis flower pin, I started
to make free-form peyote stitch to make coral forms,
and I use shells, pearls and corals on a black felt bracelet
base. I really like working with free-form peyote stitch
now. It has been so long since I used peyote stitch.
I did not have the time to post pictures of my vacation,
April and May BJP pages yet but I will real soon so
come back !

Door County Vacation

Hope you are having a good summer. I can't believe that
August is here already... We just got back from vacation

at Door County and we had a wonderful time. We went

biking and walking alot.The weather were gorgeous.
We went to 2 lighthouses at Cana Island,
Bailey Harbor
and Eagle Bluff, between Ephraim and Fish Creek. Dean
got a
flat tire at Bailey Harbor so I biked alone after that.
He did not bring extra tubes or tools to fix his bike but he
will bring them next time when we go on vacation... I
took alot of pictures and I will post my pictures soon.
I would love to go back to Door County again.
