I am so excited to have new followers!! Welcome, welcome. I have been terribly busy lately. We decided to replace our old minivan with a relatively new one. Wow! What a difference. It got a ride in the snow this morning. 😊
Here are some botanical water color works in progress:
But then I realized that that's what I am doing! I'm thinking long and hard on how I am going to manage the hydrangea and the rose. I will try not to be a perfectionist.😊😆
I was so lucky to find this hyacinth bulb already in a vase at Walmart a few weeks ago. It was barely in bloom when I picked it up and then within days it was in full bloom and full aroma!! Ahhh the smell of hyacinth in January just made me so happy. I spend a lot of time doing dishes and this is perfect aroma therapy for a boring task. Next, I plan to create a painting of the hyacinth. I have taken pictures of it from different angles to get the most of the details.
Next post will be about knitting, crocheting and other info!!
Have a wonderful Monday!!

I made a new ear warmer for my niece, The Crochet Griddle Stitch Winter Headband by Repeat Crafter Me. The pinkish purple one is for my sister, I can't remember where I got that pattern, and the scarf for her boyfriend, which I made myself.
It totally worked out that we didn't see each other on Christmas because I really wanted to add fringe to the scarf and create something new for my niece. I had already made a beret for my niece for her birthday, which was in November. She had been traveling for a few months. I hope to get things to her this week.
The kids go back to school on the 7th and I can think of so many things I had wanted to do while they were off, but didn't get to. Yet, I am proud of what I have accomplished. My plan was to work on a new project, The Harper Wool Jacket. I really like this pattern and hope to complete it before spring!! Go take a look. It's so pretty and simple. I emailed Sabina because it was hard to find Size 19 circular needles that measure 60 inches. She said the 60 inches wasn't necessary; that she liked that length so she could try the jacket while in process.
Have a great, crafty day!!!
