Hi friends! We went to the apartment yesterday and cleaned and began painting. The walls were painted grey. Brian asked if we could paint them colors of our choice. Yep!😊 But boy, what a LOT of work. And we are going back at it today.😐
The winner of the "God's Art" chart is our friend Mary. I will have another giveaway soon. I found charts to give away when I had my HUGE clean out of my stash in preparation for the move.
The Fab Four of the funny pages come together again-this time in their first book treasury.
Rat, Pig, Zebra, and Goat, the central characters of Pearls Before Swine, are back in Sgt. Piggy's Lonely Hearts Club Comic, the first Pearls Before Swine treasury-supersized for your enjoyment.
But this is no ordinary cartoon treasury. Like the influential Beatles album that inspired the book's title, Sgt. Piggy is full of surprises. In addition to collecting all of the Pearls cartoons that appeared in BLTs Taste So Darn Good and This Little Piggy Stayed Home,
cartoonist Stephan Pastis takes readers on a VIP backstage tour of one
of the most successful comic strips in newspapers today.
In Sgt. Piggy, Pastis explains the genesis of Pearls
(hint: it didn't begin at an artist's easel), why he was initially
reluctant to show it to newspaper syndicates (and the surprising reason
he changed his mind), the unexpected responses from readers to his work,
and which Pearls strips worked and which ones didn't (and how he would
have corrected the ones that didn't). The result is a rare and revealing
glimpse into the world of Rat, Pig, Goat and Zebra.
Have a super week! Thank you for stopping by.
Stitching and praying,
