van gogh's shawl



i finished the shawl yesterday and put it up on etsy. my sister heather sent in the suggestion "van gogh's spring shawl" as the title. i didn't get the connection immediately but went back to the original photo i posted a couple of days ago and there it was - a swirly van gogh night sky! thanks for the inspiration heather. now i think i'll start a monet's waterlilies or an o'keefe's poppies...

The rug's looking great!
I'd love to have a go at rug hooking but I have to finish all my current projects first... Here's the list: quilt - half finished, stained glass stars - all cut, need to be foiled and soldered, knitting some cute baby bootees, knitting pattern for a baby hat, some wool yarn I am going to dye, plus I'm rehearsing for our local annual variety show that's held at the end of April.
Oh, and a garden that needs to be tended once all the snow has melted and the ground has thawed!
Ain't life great!!??
