Awesome or what?!? I call it Cucumber and Pickles. Ha! Inside joke. Madeleine and I come up with cutesie nick names for Mabel and Henry. One of Henry's nick names is Pickles. While she painted this I exclaimed, "Look at Pickles!" She said, "Yeah, what does that make his mom in this painting? Cucumber?" Yep! Isn't baby Henry adorable? Squee!
So yes, Emerson is not the only one talented at painting in this family. We have encouraged art with all three children since they were tiny. I was always artsy. I am so glad they are also. She does not even have art class this semester. She just paints at home for fun. :) Next year she is taking Advanced Placement Art, just as Emerson did his senior year in high school. This gives her college credit for an art class, like he received also.
Madeleine has several paintings in the 80% done state. Drives me wild! Just as the above painting still needs a background! That's okay. The best part is completed. ;)
Here is another she painted a few months ago. Cool huh?
There are many more! I have permission to share these two. Ha! She doesn't know what it is like to be a proud mama. ;)
Our friend Christina (who does not have a blog) sent me some lovely pink fabrics.
She also included that sweet birdie ribbon. Thank you again Christina! I now need only 35 more pink fabrics for my Epic Pink Charm Quilt!
I STILL do not have my Easter stitch completed. sigh. Well I have NOT been up to no good! ;) I have been sewing a few headbands for Madeleine, making more gifts for friends, planting seeds indoors, clearing out garden beds bit by tiny bit and grooming poodles.
Stitching and praying,
