I went back to my “roots” so to speak with the canvas that I worked on today. A
medium I am comfortable with and yet one that is still technically challenging at times.
With the help of My A we pulled out red fabric and buttons; matching ones of course. Then with two littles underfoot I cut out shapes. Once I had peace and quiet again I pulled out the iron and the pieces. The piece on the right was my starting point.
When I was finished the “canvas” I had created a garden scene with a bit of whimsy to it.
Her little baby friend Aubree turns one today and we have an invitation to the party. Her Gramma G and her auntie and maybe even her momma, all have a “thing” about lady bugs. So it seemed quite fitting that I saw this pattern just as I was thinking about a unique gift for a sweet little one.
Off we went with the gift and one well dressed little girl to the “Wild One” party. A good time was had by all. My Little A looks pretty tall and grown up here compared to Baby Aubree because “Baby Aubree is 1 and A (as she refers to herself) is 2”.
The giving of a gift is so much less important than spending time with those we love. As gramma’s my friend G and I had our hearts full today as the girls interacted. That is the best gift.
