Finally back to the blog!

My son has left the nest! It was a lot of work getting him ready to go. As soon as he drove away, my youngest daughter was ready to redecorate and take over his room! So the week my DH was gone driving out to AZ and getting our son settled into his first apartment, I was playing interior decorator. Who knew that tan walls would take FIVE coats of paint to cover???? What is up with that??? Craziness. Plain and simple. Needless to say, the project took far longer than I planned and I never did get any art done that week. The room looks great and there is greater peace in the house now that all three girls have their own rooms :).

Time to sew, right? Not quite. My sub teaching papers finally went through and it is time to go back to work. At least part time. My first day back in the classroom was last Friday. It went pretty well. I have my sketchbook packed in case I get time to doodle next time I get called.

I did get a little knitting in. My first baby sweater:


All I need to do is add some tiny buttons. I am wondering if I have enough pink yarn left to make a matching bonnet or booties. I have a couple friends who are expecting so hopefully someone will have a girl!  I also made a couple kniting bags for my nieces that have learned to knit. I will post pics tomorrow of those. I think they turned out well.

I also managed to enter thre pieces in our local State of the Arts Show in my town. It is juried. The last two times I entered, two of my three pieces were accepted and each time I took home an award. Here’s hoping I can make it three in a row! I will find out next week.

Until next time …. which will be sooner rather than later!
