This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

Tristen's Blankie..............................

I had bought some dinosaur fabric to make a quilt for Tristen's bed. I saw a fleece panel that I thought I would make a wall hanging out of. Well when Tristen saw it he said "That mine?" and I said that it was.......well he wanted it. So I decided to make a small blanket for him to play with. It didn't take much to make it up but he loved it. All I did was to find a backing fleece and some batting. I sewed it right sides together and turned it. The batting right in place. Then I finger pressed it and sewed along the edge and that was it. I did do a few stitches on the surface so that its didn't separate. That was it.

He made a bed on the kitchen floor and snuggled up.


I had him come in the living room and he made his bed there.
