Doing one of my favorite things day

Doing my thing day.

My first day back to paint class yesterday had me coming away with this start.

I know this has a long way to go to look like this.

No one knows how many layers of paint it takes to have a finished project like this.
I just hope I can manage it.


This is probably my most favorite thing to do.
At least it is the one I have the most confidence in doing.
But it is very important doing the later years to continue learning new things.

The brain at rest stays at rest.
The brain that is active stays active.
Or something like that.

You know the story.

No one in this family has had a baby for several years and even though one grand daughter is married, there are no plans for a baby for awhile.

Our youngest daughter's best friend is expecting a baby girl any day now.
They have been friends since they were elementary students.
Our daughter was in her wedding.
She was the organist in our daughter's wedding.
I love this beautiful friend of my daughter.
Her name is Carman.
So finally I have a new baby to make a blanket for.

It is 48 x 32 inches and every stitch was made with love.
The beautiful mother-to-be, Carman, at any minute now, may have the beautiful little
Madeline Cade in her arms.

Now to wash it and block it.

With the remaining yarn, called Chenille, I am making a little bunting hat for her.
This yarn is just like what chenille bedspreads are made from.
It was hard to work with at first but as I got used to it I love it.
It is so soft. 

Now back to my baby crocheting.
Better get to tweeking that painting too.
We will hopefully finish it next week.

I love knitting for babies. It's quick, efficient and very satisfying!
