"Never give up, this may be your moment for a miracle" by Greg Anderson.
It was my first sampler just figuring out how to set different sized blocks. It hangs in the studio as one of my favorite quilts.
I was tagged by my friend Easy who's Mama blogs at EasyBlog about her life with a weimaraner in France. We are to list 5 things we really like.
Well, I made a list, and realized there are lots of fun posts here!! So I thank her for tagging me!
I've decided to replace the Muse series on Thursdays with the "I Like Thursday" series, and plan to start a link party for all who want to write a post of their favorite things. Stay tuned!!
So let's start with a general list, shall we?
1. My husband must go on the top of the list. He and I share so much in life and he's my best friend.
2. Standard Poodles.
Well, maybe I should say pets since I'm currently in love with some guinea pigs and cats too. Or...
maybe I should admit I like all baby animals especially elephants.
And I love it when one species adopts another, and love youtube videos like this one. chimp adopts dog
3. Art in general. Drawing, painting, sewing, beading, pottery, weaving, crafting... I love it all! I do it all!
4. Books! Love reading and handling and collecting books...
|Just my art books, and not all of those!|
I love a book.
I like to read fiction, and have fave authors of course. I began listing most books I read on my book page.
Once I read an article on what books you'd have on your special shelf. That will be another post.
Right now I'm reading a tea shop mystery, a book on lettering, a book on how to cope with grief of loss Never letting go by Mark Anthony.
books take me to other places, they inform me, and they open my eyes to new thoughts.
5. Entertainment. Oh how I love music, TV, movies, theater especially musical theater.
Have I ever told you I was in musical theater?
I was. I love singing and dancing, maybe not auditioning but it's part of it.
As a young 20 something I admit to claiming to be a singer/dancer on Broadway when meeting strangers at a party. A slight embellishment since the closest I got to performing on Broadway was Tampa. Still... it was an ice breaker and harmless fantasy to become someone else when meeting a bunch of strangers lol.
I grew up playing piano, maybe about 9 years. Then my marching/concert band clarinet playing took over through high school. Now I am trying to learn Ukelele.
I make up silly songs about the ordinary moments of my day. I'll make up a song about putting away dishes for instance.
I made a quick list of some specific things that make me happy... I will go into specifics later
Humor (comedies, jokes, funny sayings, whimsical pictures)
Puzzles and board games
talking to people
shopping and merchandise displays
new sheets, towels, magazines, books, etc
Art Museums and History
Comfort in general... clean air, soft rugs, soft but firm mattresses. You get the idea
I'm not going to tag anyone... you all know who you are and I have a page of fave blogs
Keep in mind, I'll be starting a link party on Thursdays so concoct fun posts that showcase some thing that makes you really happy!
I'll come read them, Love, LeeAnna
