I have an aunt who’s very crafty. For as long back as I can remember, Aunt Jean has always been into some type of project that would keep her hands busy. When I was a little girl, she knit me a set of Barbie clothes that I just adored. I lovingly played with those clothes and saved them all these years, and have enjoyed watching my own daughter play with them in her turn. Last year for Christmas, Aunt Jean sent everyone in the family a pair of crocheted slippers. And this past Friday, I received another sweet gift from my aunt. For no reason. Just because. And boy, did it ever make my day.
Look at me and my little peanut in our new hats! Although I realize that I don’t look good in hats, and believe me, I do realize that, I’ve learned something about myself. I LIKE hats! I really do. They are so snuggy and warm, and who cares what I look like in them, anyways.
I wore my hat out to the lake for my date with Nik.
While Nik wore shorts and a tank top. What a study in contrasts we must have been.
Nik worked away in her sketchbook, creating a picture to give to my brother for his birthday. The drawing depicts Uncle Paul’s two most favorite things…..his cat and his computer. So perfect for him.
And I worked away on my stitching. I made one little pillow for a friend.
And one for me.
I do love Fridays. SO glad another one has rolled around again already. And I hope that whatever you do today, that it’s a wonderful day for YOU!
