Crafting On

Having seen a sweet postcard frame in the background of this post, I asked Stacey where she got it. It turns out that it's an inexpensive frame from Wal-Mart or a craft store. Sure enough, our Wal-Mart (which is a small one!) had similar frames.  When I was at the paint store a few weeks ago, I saw a rainbow of stain colors.  This inspired me to use watercolors on the frame and it turned out so well!  The paint is not permanent, of course, and shouldn't get wet.  We're getting a new roof this week or the next, so that shouldn't be a problem. ;-)

Watercolor Frame

Here's the third pilot cap, nearly done.
I do like making these, though the Sweet Baby Cap is still my favorite.
I'll make at least one more and then be done.
I've got secret Easter knitting to do.

Willow's Pilot

Here's a new set of pajamas, too, from a current Simplicity pattern.
Thanks to clearanced fabric, these cost about three dollars.
They are light and airy, definitely for Summer.
I modified them a bit, adding another layer to the bodice to make them feel more substantial.
Some patterns are just too simple and I am feeling confident enough to make them my own.

Pink Pajamas

Our Springy weather is calming down and sending me looking for my flannel nightgowns again.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
