Paint Party Friday

It's Friday again and time to Party with the best :) 
It has been a productive week here . My energy seems to have finally restored itself and I'm loving it . 
I'm still Painting flowers and dreaming of summer. Inspired by the unseasonably warm weather we've been having here. With BRIGHT sunshine ♥ Makes me want to plant flowers but I know it's not a wise thing to do so I paint them . 
A 8 x 10 inch canvas board done with acrylics and ink. 

a 8 x 8 inch gallery wrapped canvas with 1.5 in sides. This one is a mixed media canvas. 

I have a couple of sketches started but no pictures of those. 
The rest of my week was spent working on my fiber arts. 
I crocheted a wool hat with my first batch of hand dyed yarn and then I felted and shaped. 

I also made one with some purchased yarns.

Now I have to decide what type of hat to make with the second batch of blue yarn.

Winter has returned now so it will be a lot of cuddling by the fireplace and cooking I think for this coming week. :) Soups and breads sound real good .
