Decided I need a Folk Art Coat to go with my Polka-Dot shoes. So I just painted one with acrylic canned paint. Want to get a red hooded sweatshirt to go under for the sale Sat as it's going to be Cold!

"Going Glamping" (Glamorous Camping) was my 3-Dim entry in the Harrisonville Fine Art Show this week  and I won first place!. To be fair there were not many entries in this category, but I was happy! I designed  cute little camper blocks on black felt after seeing the idea on friend Jamie Fingal's "Twisted Sister" blog. I didn't know exactly what I would do with them, but they ended up giving  me  the idea for my 3rd Story Quilt!. I would just love to have a small R.V. that I could drive fixed up all glamorous for get-away trips. So there I am on my quilt set up at "Marlynne's Hideaway" with my Polka-Dot camper and gold print canopy waving to all my friends! My plans are to make a few more Story Quilts then offer to give a program at sororities or some woman's group.

"Listen Carefully To Your Inner Voice" was my second entry in the Acrylic Category, although I added some Sari  material and gold twigs plus glitter glue. We are going to discuss adding  a Mixed Medium Category or combining it with 3-Dim at our next meeting.

 This was my 3rd Entry and in Acrylic Category also. I titled it "Fantasy Feather & Floral". I won a Judge Merit ribbon on this which I felt was an honor since Acrylic is a big Category. This was so much fun to paint and embellish! Again it would have probably been in Mixed Media Category had we had one.

Our mornings are cool now, and it will soon be too cool for having my morning coffee in what I call my "Mamma Mia Room" in my "Blue Bottle Garden" so husband Maurice took my picture to capture the memory! When ever I come out the dog and cats are immediately there for  attention!

Here's a view from the other direction. Hope your recording your memories too! Happy Fall!
