The Family Grows

Well...I should post way more often, and then I wouldn't have so much to say at one time. It has been an exciting week for the family. My husband's youngest sister just had her first baby...a little boy named Nicholas. I'd post a picture but I forgot my camera when I went to visit. He is ADORABLE! That makes 16 nephews and nieces that I have and 6 great nephews and nieces on my husband's side of the family (not including my two sons) and 3 on my side of the family.

I got in a creative mood and made him this stuffed sock critter. It was so fun, I think I'll make some more.

I got an email from my sister today with a link to my Uncle David's new website. He is a painter and was a painting teacher at Middle Tennessee State University were I went to college, though never took one of his classes. He wasn't married to my aunt yet so I didn't know him then and my emphasis was commercial art not fine art. I probably would be a much better artist today if I had taken his classes.
I wish you could meet him...he's very interesting. There are a few paintings on the site but more will be added later. I am pleased to have four of his works at my house.
Of course I have been busy making more jewelry and here is some of it. There are too many to post at one time.Silver and freshwater pearls.

Behind the stone is my first attempt at PMC.


Now I need to get to work and clean the house and plant some flowers and replant all of our sweet corn that the crows have eaten. Arrrrrrrrrrgh!
