February 28 Self Portrait

My lap right now...and most of this month, plus or minus an almost-two-year-old. (BTW, good book so far, I LOVED the first one, and I'm about 1/3 of the way into this one.)

February 26

This is from a week or so ago...taken during that brief time of day when he isn't being....well, an almost two year old boy! ;)

This is Jenny from the first night she slept in her big girl bed. I'm working on a quilt, and I'm planning on making several throw pillows so that she can use it like a day-bed (it's the top of a bunk bed). I'm having fun choosing art for her walls. When we rearranged the room to fit the bed we had to clear the walls for the new layout anyway so I thought it would be a good time to choose some art prints. :) I'm thinking of some Monet for sure, I just have to decide on the size, and how many pieces to get. (I plan on getting them from, but I want to check the website of the National Gallery.)

I love those chocolatey brown eyes!! :) This is the Little Miss from a few weeks ago, in her new-ish hat. She asked for another one today, in red, to "help her get feeling better." ;) How could I say no to that?? The pattern is here. (BTW Caroline, this pattern is really easy, and worked back and forth/flat instead of in the round, so I think you could def. do it! And the super bulky yarn makes it go really fast.)
This is a knit for me! It's a wide headband (next time I'll make it a bit narrower), and I love that it's designed to cover the wearers ears! :) Livie died the yarn for me as a Christmas gift using this tutorial, and I love how it worked up for this. The pattern can be found here. I was a bit worried at first, but once you're actually working on it the directions are perfect. :) I want to make Jenny a smaller one with the rest of the yarn!

My life in art...

Not much of this has been happening...
or this...

You see, Mr. Anthony is sick, so the past two days I've been doing allot of this... (although not dressed nearly so nicely!)

And a great deal of this....

Trying to squeak in bits of this... Jenny and I have been playing at, working on letter sounds and the beginning of putting them together into words. :)
But before long it's back to this again...I've been spending large amounts of time in this exact cuddling position. :)

Daydreaming of a bit of all-alone shopping to be done tomorrow (I LOVE this picture! heehee)
I think this might be a picture that was actually taken in my house this week.... ;)

Have a lovely weekend!

WIP Wednesday:: Knitting

Socks!! That's right ladies and gentlemen, I can knit socks! I'm so excited, and even better, Jenny loves them. As you can see, I have the second one nearly finished; I'm hoping to get it finished today. I can't wait to cast on a pair for Anthony! I have a great self-striping yarn that I hope he will like. :)
A rather late Christmas's coming along though! (I promise, Caroline!)
And a yummy hat for myself! I'll share details on each when I post finished pictures, but if you have any questions let me know. :)

Another lovely giveaway!

I promise I will resume regular posting here soon! We have been sick, and the feet upon feet of snow we have been getting here in Virginia has kept me busy. I wanted to pop on here though, to share a lovely Waldorf book giveaway that the lovely Hillary is doing over on her blog Healing Hillary. So go have a look, and if you're so inclined put your name in the hat!
