Blue Girl and Ironstone rest on my livingroom mantel just staring and sitting. I love this oil painting that my Great Uncle did, many years ago. I inherited this piece along with many sketches, from his sister, my Grandmother.
She also was very much the artist.

DD has been on a felting binge with pillows and embelllishing. I love her new work!
Larissa is making these felted accent pillows now. They are the real deal, everything about them is handcrafted felt from her hands.
So color rich!

Yesterday I heard confirmation that the large package was received safe and sound. I was so afraid something would happen to damage the work, or it would get lost, or the weather...etc. etc.
I packed it up extra special with not only her purchased pieces but, loads of extras for her wonderful self.
I am so sorry for getting in the trash.....again........ Mom
He is such an attentive loving Border Collie in that he is not destructive or nippy. But, every now and then he just starts to tweak about needing to get in the garbage. We have him on a diet, for he is a bit of a Kielbasa, food is his drug of choice and I forgot to tie the bag...

|Your Hidden Talent|
The show yesterday was in Cook Forest State Park at the Forest Nook Restaurant and shoppe. Here is a pic of the shoppe where we were next to. Such a gorgeous day in Pennsylvania! Larissa, Pat and I again together for this one. Friends of mine from town are involved with this restaurant venture. They asked it I would be interested in being the featured artist for the day, in their first of many fall shows to come. A local radio station came to broadcast the event. They have some fantastic ideas on how to better the area's artisan scene.
Larissa is teaching classes at ECCOTA on freeform knitting. Here is a scarf just completed on Nicki. It wraps around a few times, for it is very long. Sunrise to Sunset is the thought. She loves this piece and insisted on modeling it throughout the day.
