Little things


I've done it.

Then the next day I did it again.

I wandered into a baby clothing store and bought teeny tiny baby clothes. I laid them over the back of a dining room chair and just stared at them, imagining them filled with a small warm body. I think the concept of grandmotherhood is sinking in. I think I will also be in debt before the child is born...

It is the first test piece for art money. I'm sure more will complete the diary of my journey through this new step in life.

Meanwhile, to snap myself out of it, here is the third value map drawing of the portrait trilogy that I started this weekend. I started adding colour to the first portrait last night and tonight. I'll post an update tomorrow on that.

Tonight its babyland.

Jeanette, congratulations! I am so happy for you! You just can't imagine what a fullfilling experience it is. They are the extension of your children and you love them as much.

How lovely - and congratualtions! Will knitting needles be coming out soon?

Thank you Mary, I'm looking forward to it. I think the news is finally hit me. I shall come to you for advice as you've got some experience in this realm I believe.

Thanks Katherine. Funny, I have always knit for years and years, but haven't done so for some time now. Art seems to have put it in the backseat - not that it stops me from buying yarn when I see it. My oldest daughter seems to be making up for my lack of knitting with her own. Perhaps I'll be adventurous and try something once winter sets in and I run out of excuses. :o)

Congratulations Jeanette! Everyone tells me its a great pleasure being a grandparent - you get to spoil them rotten and then hand them back!
