Oh my goodness! I want to know how to do this? It is absolutely lovely. Yes, it does look like Toulouse Lautrec, or perhaps a Degas? I love the colors and the gaiety of it all. Fantastic work, Sue! Thanks for sharing something so fun and unique!

Wowzah! What a beautiful piece of artwork... is it embroidery? It even looks like the old technique 'lace making' (don't know the english word for this technique) Awesome!

A friendly street light illuminates the dark path as does bright hellos! Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning. Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue Recuerda mi Corazon

Gathering Myself

Today I'm taking a little me time, doing what I love to do, just digital doodling. My mind has been on dolls, motherhood, Mary and the coming season. Recently an acquaintance posted about  ' Rag Doll ',  this is me at the moment, I feel a bit like a rag doll, the stuffing has been knocked out a little.

By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering... On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'
