my new lens

 For my birthday, Tracy bought me a new lens for my nikon today....a 40mm/2.8 macro.  So I was having fun with it.  It's amazing and just what I was looking for.
 I've been drawing again in my old drawing journal...this time with pencil instead of pen.

 Hi Sherlock!
 If anyone read yesterday's post, this is the owl I made over the weekend.
 This is a purse I made from leftover scraps we were using to make scarves.  The face piece is a hand painted, hand quilted things I did several years ago and never used it on anything.  It was just the weight I needed for a flap on the purse to keep it closed.

 This is the scarf I made.  Mine was super plain compared to the others...hopefully they will post their scarves on their blogs because they are much cooler....but this is something I will actually wear.  I LOVE color in my art but not to wear.
 Playing with my new lens in Tracy's journal.
More of Tracy's art.
