For Sweet Feet....

In the spirit of keeping my resolution to paint more, I painted this little (7"x7") oil sketch of a pair of boots one grand-daughter is 'hand-me-down-ing' to the other grand-daughter. They were left here with a lot more hand-me-downs for us to deliver when we visit the younger one in a few months. The boots are sweet little suede ones, and I kind of feel like the suede texture shows well in oil.

I am also hoping to weave this week. This is where I had to stop weaving for other things, about a month ago. I hope to weave about 3 inches this week, which will take me up to the red line I added to the photo. I guess posting this is a way to motivate me to meet my goal! Even though this isn't a big piece, and 3 inches isn't a huge goal, I have a lot of other things to do this week as well, so I think it's about all I could possibly do. At the top of today's list is de-Christmasing the house. That will take all day, so I doubt that any of those inches will be woven today.
