Welcome! I'm so glad you stopped by to visit. Have you been involved in crafting? Above is one of my recent crafting explorations. When I was in third grade...more than 60 years ago...I was guided to focus on music rather art instruction. While I am grateful for the music instruction I have had since then in clarinet, bassoon, piano, and vocal, I especially enjoy learning about drawing and watercolor painting now. Once a month I usually meet with a small group of women to work on a worship art project. Above is my interpretation of the recent project our facilitator designed.
While the season is winter in my part of the world, I have seen little snow and ice in the valley where I live near Portland, Oregon, to impair my crafting efforts. In fact, four of my hanging plants still have flowers on them and I have been thrilled to see hummingbirds visit them to drink from the blossoms.
Inside, my Oxalis plant, on the bottom left in this photo above, produces sweet little white blossoms and I am also enjoying viewing the white flower on the little white Pointsettia in the bottom right of the photo above.
During our chilly weather, I am especially enjoying knitting mostly at our church small group a little preemie sized blanket in acrylic yarn.
However, I am especially enjoying knitting at home more rows on the bulky Merino wool blanket I started years ago. It is big enough now to provide me with significant warmth on our colder days.
While I still have a Christmasy jingle bell wreath on my front door, I am amazed at and enjoying viewing the pink blossoms on two hanging plants framing the jingle bell wreath. It was fun crafting this view to share with you.
And look what I spotted poking out of the earth nearby the front door... Hyacinths! Beyond the Hyacinths in the upper left of the photo above is a clump of Cala Lillies...they will be trumpeting the arrival of Spring soon in the weeks ahead...I type as a woman of faith!
A recent sunrise gave me the opportunity to craft a photo of it. I used my iPhone 11 Pro to take the photo, cropped the photo on my laptop Macbook Pro and let it choose the glorious color intensity that reflects what I saw... an encouraging warming firey glow to enliven life from skies that had been perseverating in chilly gray for many days.
I hope you are enjoying happy times... will you share how you have been crafting your days?
