The ramblings of a Creative Crone! I consider myself to be the Grandma Moses of the Fiber Arts World as I came to the art late in life. My blog will consist of my art; art of others; an occasional book review because when not creating, I am reading; perhaps an enlightening discussion on a favorite quote...and positive discussions of politics/world affairs only!
My blogger daughter is taking 30 days to blog about specific topics...mostly personal stuff and she challenged others to join her in this April endeavor...so being the supportive mom and competitive person that I am, here goes: (to see her list of daily topics, see her blog ABBA on my side bar list)
Day #1 (which was really yesterday)-A picture of yourself as a child
Day # 2: A more current picture and 15 facts!
