Here is the painting I got for myself for a birthday present. It is called The Runicible Spoon painted by Natalie Nolan. Went and bought the fabric to make the skirt she requested as a barter. Have her measurements and have an image in mind, now to sit down at the sewing table and start creating.
The scary thing is I have actually had people walk in the living room and not notice the new addition to the room. Strongly suspect that many people are overwhelmed by the house and its decor. Oh well a creative bunch dwells there.
