Chihuly Glass Installation




Must share a few photos of the awe-some installation
I visited a week ago at the Desert Botanical Gardens
in Phoenix. Dale Chihuly's glass creations are amazing
in an already beautiful setting. This exhibit remains
through May... if you get a chance to see it, do so.

Sweaters for Teddy Bears


Walked into the knit shop in Scottsdale for a crochet hook
and walked out with this darling book full of patterns
""Knits for Children and Their Teddies."" I am not an
expert knitter and welcome any hints and stories of
success.

Nursery Curtains


While I am thinking about family tonight, here are
a couple of photos of the curtains I made for baby's
nursery. I used a vintage bunny rabbit fabric
reminiscent of Beatrix Potter~adorable. Ruffles at
top and bottom are a soft mint dot on mauve/taupe
by Ava Rose. Curtains are lined with cotton canvas.

Family Photos


It is so rare that my immediate family assembles for a photo! Here
we all are on April 5th, Prescott, AZ. The occasion was the baby shower for
my daughter-in-law, Karlyn. Baby girl is due the end of April/first of May.
From right to left are my daughter Wendy, Karlyn, dad-to-be son Brian,
grandma-to-be ~ that's me!, and step-grandpa-to-be, Richard.
