Elbee liked the fabric too.
"I will sit myself here as I enjoy the view," he says.
My pattern, a tried and true: New Look 6843.
I just love the simplicity of a long maxi or midi A-line skirt with a simple knit top. It reminds me of that Mary Tyler Moore/Rhoda look. Give me a print skirt with a modest but fitted black or navy knit top and I feel very comfortable.
I've always loved to draw since I was a wee little girl. Since junior high I have been drawing people, designing clothes on paper, drawing girls in pretty dresses, and then portraits, fashion illustrations in high school.
We can use our talents in a variety of ways in many seasons of life I have found. In homeschooling, I had and still have a great time with my art in sewing and designing my own clothing. My husband reminds me that creativity is of God. God creates and loves it when we do too.
There was and is always art of some kind going on in our home ..and musics. Once in the suburbs a neighbor came over and let's say things were a bit undone.... She just smiled and said when I apologized... "You just have a liberal arts house!" -- lol!
Yes, we creative messies do have a knack for being a bit undone...I strive to declutter but many times things evolve into something similar like these guys have...
Steve Job's desk.
Creative clutter is more blessed than tidy idleness. ; )
I'll close with some photos of our fur angels here at the Forest Cathedral.
Elbee... There you are, you little character....
Becs captures the moment as well.
This is our precious little Guisseppe. He is our little elder fur angel and blind. He is much like a little child to care for... An angel. The vet's assistant calls him, her baby.
Charlie, his eyelashes are beautiful, and he is quite a character. Sometimes I call him Carlos, the character from the comedy, My Man Godfrey (1936) since he is so dramatic.
Gracie. She loves the tiny bed. She's quite a character too.
That is a sampling of our fur angels here at the Forest Menagerie that we care for.
Today I watched Penny Serenade (1941) while getting some things done.
I love this movie...I cried as if it were the first time I watched it... I really enjoy any movie with Irene Dunne, Cary Grant, and Beulah Bondi in it. Greatness. It reminds me of my mom and dad in happy times years ago.
This evening before dinner, I listened to this song by Fernando Ortega from upstairs, Mar was playing it. It makes you want to just stop and contemplate life.
An evening walk here...
Sometimes it captures my heart...far away...beyond the sky, beyond all telling, our Father Himself will be our Light...
Have a great week, loves, Amelia at the Forest.
