Most of you probably know that I was making a crocheted layette set for my new little grandson, which I put the finishing touches on the day after he was born. It was presented to him the night before he went home from the hospital. He wore the hat and sweater home.
Only one bootie was finished so he had to make the trip home wearing socks only. I made the second bootie only to discover that it was smaller, neater and better in every way than the first. So I made a third bootie, which turned out better still. Now I am making a fourth in the attempt to produce a matching pair. I guess practice really does make perfect....or at least better.....
Keep your fingers crossed please!
Linda from Linda Mahoney Art surprised me with this nice award this week.
Thanks Linda. Please check out her beautiful artwork. I practically drool looking at her fabulous pieces. She has such a talent.
I am supposed to list seven things I love and pass the award along to seven artists whose blogs I love.
For fun I'm naming seven food items beginning with the letter C that I really enjoy:
Thai Crunch Salad from California Pizza Kitchen
Crispy Chicken strips from KFC (yes, I know it's bad for me)
Basmati rice with Coconut milk
This list is one item too long, but I can't choose which one to eliminate so I'm not....eliminating one!
I'd like to present this award to:
Denise at Look Beyond the Picket Fence-because she makes something cute everyday!
Robyn at Art Propelled-because she carves wonderful things and inspires and teaches me something new all the time.
Toni at A Spattering-because her bird studies are fantastic and her watercolor tips are invaluable.
Teri at Teri's Painted Daisies-because I've come to love her Sunday church sketches. They make a perfect start for the week.
Diahn at Art By Diahn-because I'm loving seeing Washington DC through the pages of her Moleskin.
Linda at Quotidian Curiosities-because she is a fantastic watercolorist...even though February seems to have put her on hold...hurry up spring...Linda needs inspiration to paint again
That is just six artists, but heck I named eight foods, so we're even!
Get busy, make something creative before the week is over and remember take a picture of the space that inspires you to be creative and share it on Friday!
