Here's another 8.5 x 11 piece for the High Fiber Diet show. This just goes to show that one needn't look too far for subject matter. Har har!
Today was a Sofi day. She and I have a little ritual now for her afternoon nap. I put her down in the pack 'n play where she sleeps for about 20 minutes, then she fusses so I pick her up and we finish the nap together in my comfy chair with the ottoman. I can put my feet up and read while she snoozes on my shoulder, then her nice warm little presence and steady breathing lulls me to sleep and I can get a little nap of my own in. There is nothing quite as nice as a sleeping baby softly snoring against your neck.
The thread and scissors remind me of my recent andventure out to find a pair of scissors that were at least 50 years old. This is a fun piece.ReplyDelete
Your post reminds me of similar pleasant naptimes with Caroline. There is nothing more restful than sitting with a sleeping baby! What wonderful grandma time for you. And I ADORE your scissors. So simple and evocative. I'd snap it up in a moment at the HFD show if I were there!
Your "paint" beautiful cloth pictures, and also paint lovely word pictures. Such talent.ReplyDelete
What a lovely time you must have with Sofi!ReplyDelete
And I wish I had such a pair of scissors!
What a great example that a simple subject can become a wonderful work of art.ReplyDelete
Sounds like Sofi is getting you trained.
Life always sounds so serene in your world. Sigh. Love those scissors; love that baby...ReplyDelete
