It has been a long stretch since I have posted, but I have been extremely busy with couple of projects, so I thought I would take a few moments to share them with you.

First off, I haven’t quit knitting.  In fact, I have chosen to immortalize my dog with a new pillow design.

Isn’t he adorable.  And…yes, he runs the house around here.  🙂

I will be using white and black kid-mohair for the body, and will incorporate some of my sculpting techniques to give the body a more “real” appearance.  I was thinking that I might even add a bit of silk thread in the eye area, once the knitting is complete.

I will share the process later, when I see how it plays out.

Secondly, if you have read my “about” page or have gone to my harp website, you know that I compose  and arrange music, and it is that project that has me very grateful this Thanksgiving.

This summer I got together with a couple of my fellow 70 + singers, and started a madrigal group called , “A Little Bit of Dickens.”  This gave me the opportunity to compose arrangements for our trio.  What fun it has been.   To add to my delight, they loved my compositions- it doesn’t get any better than that.

A little bit of Dicken's -with textAbove is a photo of our trio, complete with costumes.  We are all set for the Christmas season, and will be performing in our community.  We all have had a great time rehearsing, and can’t wait to share our traditional style carols with friends and family.

I hope to be back in the swing of things knitted after the first of the year, but until then I wish you all a blessed holiday season.



PS – for those of you interested in a gift for your kids or grandkids, check out “Grandma’s Corner.”  I have two children’s books for you to upload and share.  Feel free to peruse them first.
