This is Priest lake...a huge lake...lovely water...great sandy beaches.
We had a great camp site...very close by.
WE boated around, swam, made several sand castles, went to resorts, hiked, played games, four square and more! 
This chipmunk loved our potato sticks and he would eat some and then hide the rest...he would take one and rest it on a tree , in between bark....it was so cool!
Then he would go back and eat them.
we also had deer that came through our camp and a sweet frog. 
Here is one of the sand castles...
the beach was pretty hot and the sand was too.
The smell of pine tree and water was great!
One day someone played bagpipes in the distance...it was cool.

This week I worked on some repeating halloween designs...like Franky and his gal pal..
they are holding their treat bag and doing some serious trick or treating.
It was fun playing with colors and changing things up a bit.
I drew this and watercolored it on sunday...while by my sister's pool.
I love bringing a small watercolor pad and just making something up on the spot.
I can always sell the original, scan it and make it into a print or tags, or I could make it into a repeating pattern design...
the sky's the limit.
This is going to be make next pattern...but it won't look like this when you see it next!
I also was playing around with raw edge applique...so much fun and so much texture!
I will share more about this next week.
Have a terrific weekend!
