Welcome to the family little one . . .

Life is good today! I have been working on creating these last few days. My knitting needles have been calling my name and I made this little sweater for my nephew and niece's newest family member, Josiah, born on Monday morning - welcome to the world little one! I am also making him a couple of hats, some booties and a teddy bear. Knitting baby sweaters is one of my favorite things to make. They are just so dog gone cute! I picked up a new book called Knitting For Peace and it is whetting my appetite for doing even more knitting.
I am going to participate in an art show on October 4th, so I have been working on things to take there. It's been quite a while since I have done any selling, so this should be interesting! I've been working until about 1:00 a.m. and watching the Science channel - just getting into the creative flow.
My BFF is leaving on her trip to France to visit with her sister for a couple of weeks - ahhh, I can taste that French bread now! Check out my link to La Fourchette, perhaps Leslie will post a little something about what they are up to while she is there!
I am feeling like life is full these last couple of days, a good place to be and I leave you with this thought, "Anything less than compassion doesn't serve your highest good." Wishing you the opportunity to practice your compassion today.

What a beautiful blog entry. I love the sweater you knitted - it is fantastic! How blessed this little one is to have you in his life. Please keep sharing pictures of the pieces you knit for him - you are so very inspiring to me!

That's a beautiful little sweater, Deborah. Don't forget to post the rest of the pieces when you finish them. Good luck at the art show. I know you'll do well with such lovely work.

Hi Deborah,

I'm sorry to say that the kitty didn't make it. He was just too little to be that sick. My friends Denise and her husband Eric really tried every thing they could. Thank you for asking.
As far as studio's go, I intend to put up some pictures as soon as I clean up the mess that I'm working in. I don't know why but when I'm making jewelry I just leave everything out.---Can't find anything either.
