My friend and fellow "Blogger" Nancy VanHoose of "Her Art Nest" has become a rabid, uh, rapid, well you get the picture, knitter. Like any of her artwork her pieces are well made, impeccably done, true works of art. I was fortunate enough to be "gifted" one of her pieces in her 100th post giveaway. Just look at this, it is lovely, perfectly knitted (I knitted once long, long ago, in a faraway land, but I lacked the discipline, drive, and the ability to maintain an even tension), completely lined and look there, that lovely tag she made.
I have hung up the beautiful bag in my room so that I can enjoy the fragrance and admire it. I think I will be using it for my sewing things, it is perfect for thread, scissors, floss and buttons..... and some felt to make my little mice? Thank You Nancy it is wonderful, I feel so lucky.
Since work was "real s-l-o-w" I was sent home. So I have been sketching some ideas for a couple new paintings. I have a Birthday Princess, Hoop Girl, Girl and Bunny Party Girl, and another mermaid. I was on a run this morning. Sometimes I sit to draw, and nothing. Then all of a sudden my mind is spilling over with ideas.
One more thing, this is important, Nancy will soon be selling her handmade bag's, (and perhaps some of her lovely journals?) on her blog! Please watch for them, you won't want to miss out! She does the neatest Felted bags too! I believe she made a beautiful felted bowl for her Partner in the "Year of Color" basket exchange. It was Gorgeous! Her partner has yet to post it, and I am thinking she probably doesn't want to share it, because everyone would want it. I Can't blame her, I know I did when I saw it. So be patient and make sure to check Nancy's blog often. You may find something you just have to have!
