What I have been working on this week and my Mother's Day present

Late afternoon to all!
Anyway this is when I started writing this post, I have been crafting just a little these past few weeks before the grand baby arrived. I did some painting on small chalkboards. I used oil based paints for the painting and some oil pastels for the wood around the chalkboards. One chalkboard wall hanging is for fall time and the other one is for summer time. I drew the crows and scene free hand using no ideas or patterns, basically just going with the flow of things.
Both will be cute wall hanging for the two seasons, I have also sealed the chalkboards with a good sealer and the wood has been done in oil pastels. What I did was to color wildly onto the wood using the pastel and then rub the pastel into the wood using some Q-tips the method worked quite well.
In the second photo is my mother's day present from my wonderful husband! I am hoping it will attract some humming birds. There are several colors of fuchsia in the pot and I will be trying to get some starts off of it.
This week I am hoping to get some dolls sewn seems my sewing machine is in neglect so hope to start sewing again. I have an 18 inch doll all cut out all I need to do is sit down and sew!
