blue moons


She's on the porch swing to celebrate the blue moon. The reason I go on and on about the porch swing is because this is a new one, a gift from my husband. It has a deep contoured seat and rolled edges that make it more comfortable on the back of the knees. The full moon is when to acknowledge the goodness in our lives and this swing certainly qualifies as that for me.

An apropos cloth to work on today? Happy weekending to you and thanks for visiting here. xx


If you'd like to join me in making full moon art, leave a link in the comments here or email me your file and I'll post it over on the drawing down the moon page on the sidebar. If you leave a link, I'll add it to the moon posts that you see below.

)* Click here to visit Ms. and see her Blue Moon of August post today -- there's art and music and trivia and more!

)* See what was revealed to Laurie on the drawing down the moon page.

)* Visit Nanette to see what beauty she drew down and then stitched into being -- a blue moon cloth, swimming in cosmic tides.

)* Nancy has begun stitching a lovely blue moon cloth -- now over on the drawing down the moon page -- and soon to be posted on her blog.

)* Be still my heart! Kathy, the Woodland Quilter, has just posted some gorgeous blue moons -- from a felted local harvest blue moon to an indigo-dyed moon scarf, with a few others in between -- here!

)* A magical blueberry knitted cowl and magnificent blue moon photo is up now on Cindy's blog. Her sons have magical names, too.

)* Jo and Laura found themselves without brushes so fashioned some out of pine needles and duct tape! See their paintings over on the drawing down the moon page.

I love a porch swing. I need one too. I had a great one once with really wide arm rests that would hold that G&T! Beautiful moon last night.....

Beautiful homage to the blue moon and the porch swing Peggy. We don't do porch swings here, but it's great to hear how much you guys love them.
Taking Mirrhi to puppy school now, but plan to post my blue moon art after I get back.

A beautiful moony cloth...the wavy lines make it even more evocative...

Peggy said...

Lyn, that sounds perfect!

And the cloth has been around a while, I only work on it once in a blue moon...

Peggy said...

Sara, now that's the cadillac version! :)

Peggy said...

Hi Nanette, I'll watch for it!

Peggy said...

Hi Suzanna, I like it too, it's a bleached moon -- I was thinking about painting one like it on the itty bitty canvas but got sidetracked with the swing...

Nanette said...

Hi Peggy, blue moon stitching posted on my blog.x

Nancy said...

Love the painting. Will we get to see all of them together at the close of the year? Love your moons cloth too!

Peggy said...

Nanette, it's so cool, I like how you relate the energy of a particular moon to your cloth!

Peggy said...

Hi Nancy, thanks and I love your beautiful moon cloth -- the subtle variation of colors is a dream!

I'm trying to find the best way for all the little itty bitty paintings to be together. They're together now, but not in a great way yet. ;)

Thanks for posting for me Peggy :)
