Today, I had to take a package to the post office to be mailed. I checked my PO box while I was there, and to my complete delight, a package arrived from my friend Patricia Scarborough!!!! Patricia recently had a birthday giveaway on her blog, and I was the lucky winner!!! So my package today was the beautiful painting she was generous enough to give away. I am so happy!!! I am SO EXCITED!!! Here is a photo of it, so that you may enjoy it too. Thank you, Patty, for this gorgeous painting!!!! I love it!
The other happy news is that I have, at long last, finished my first major crochet project. I crocheted this shopping bag out of wool yarn, and when I was finished, I stuck it in the washing machine with hot water and felted it! It was enormous before I washed it, but now, it is just right for a Karine of 5'3". I am happy with the way it turned out, and even more happy that I have finished it. It took a long time, because I am just a beginner with crochet, but also because I have been painting more than I have been working on it.
Here it is before the felting:
Here it is after the felting!
I am focusing on all of these happy feelings, because my husband left today after being home for what seemed like only MOMENTS, and I am missing him already. One must balance out the good and the bad for survival, I think.
Two more giclees have been listed for auction on ebay, if you care to take a peek. Just click here.
I hope you all have a happy Wednesday!
