Well as you can tell I was not able to finish the A to Z Challenge. I tried my best, but life just got in the way. Between getting sick twice and Gwen's play I was just over scheduled and exhausted. However, I like the alphabet theme thing and I have a few that I really wanted to get to so I am going to continue plugging along even though time is up.
O is for Octopus
I love it! I want it! So i must make it. Usually all the cute stuffy
patterns I find are for crochet, but this one says for knitting. The
drawback is that it is not one of the free ones, but $6 isn't much.
O is for Oil Painting Grandma
I wanted to share one of my Grandma's wonderful paintings. Someone once offered to buy it from me.
As I have said before my Grandma was of the Bob Ross school of painting.
I love this painting because it has purple instead of dark blue
depicting night fall. I also love how the two streams collide into the
waterfall. Of course there are the obligatory happy little trees and
they do look jolly. My most favorite part is how the clouds part in the
center. I remember this picture hanging over my Grandparents couch for
many years. It was not until after her death and my Grandfather's
relocation to an apartment that it came to live with me.
