I know I have been among the missing. Tragic events before Christmas and the fallout from the election took their toll on my normally cheerful disposition. I have been blog hopping but rarely leaving a comment. My little world with projects and delicious dinners has seemed somewhat trite. However, life must go on and a dear friend said to head for the studio and jump back into life - so here I go.
The little sweetheart above belonged to my grandmother. She went missing for a few years but my middle son found her inside a clay pot which was stuffed on a shelf in a garage. Luckily she was unharmed and I rescued her. She is a piano baby and you can read about them here. They are decorative pieces meant to hold shawls that were draped over pianos in Victorian parlors.
I have collected a few more because I love their faces. I keep them on my dresser and their loveliness brings a smile to my face in the morning.
I hope to post more regularly now. my knitting is taking up much time as I rush to keep up with the Knit-a-Longs.
Wishing you all a wonderful new year!
