autumn afternoon

the afternoon was spent at the dining room table.
i with my tea
and the kids with their brushes,
paint brushes, that is.
while they were creating their masterpieces
i was crocheting!
yep, i'm slowly but surely getting
the hang of it.
what i love more than anything is the relaxed state i fall into while doing it.
sipping tea and listening to goose and binky chat
about friends, snowboarding, and autumn projects was heaven.
there was a peaceful calm in the room that i did not want to end.
it was a blissful afternoon filled with art and love!


  1. What a lovely post :) The artwork is great. And that's awesome you are crocheting! I vow that I will take that hobby up someday soon ... although I've said that for awhile I now, I really do mean it ... lol.

  2. I really like their colors...and the color of your yarn. That whole big field of pumpkins on a full moon night - wow!

    I have been re-learning to crochet lately too, since it is easier on the hands. Just starting to get more into it...in time for gift making! :)

  3. Sounds like a really lovely afternoon. I am learning crocheting too - still got lots to learn! Beautiful art!

  4. Ah, the peaceful days of fall...

  5. So, so wonderful. I sort of had a similar afternoon yesterday--only Benjamin was working with dough while I felted little witchlings for in my Etsy shop. :)

    I got your e-mail--I'm sorry I had to confirm your suspicions about the actors. HA HA!

  6. beautiful......these moments are precious! love your blog! <3

  7. I love the artwork! Fabulous stuff.
    I wish I could work with my hands, but it seems as I have two lefts?
    Can't wait to see your finished project.
