Welcome to Peek A Boo Tuesday!! I love to knit but don't find much time to do it anymore! I have so many projects that I have started and never finished!! My favorite one that I did manage to get done was one that was started by my mother-in-law before she passed away. She had started knitting afghan's for all her grandchildren but did not get them finished. However, she did have some of the strips done for my oldest daughter. I wanted all of my children to have something of her's because she was a wonderful women! I knew that there was no way that I could get four of them done in such a short time before Christmas. My mom also knits and told me that she would help me. So I bought the rest of the yarn that we needed and we both got to work. She of course was done before me because she knits faster than I do!!
I was very happy with the way that they all turned out!
But the most special thing about it was that they all received an afghan made from both of their grandmothers and mother! My daughters have often told me that it was one of their favorite gifts that they ever received!! I always hoped that maybe my mother-in-law was looking down at us and seeing how beautiful they turned out!! Maybe this will inspire me to finish some of my other knitting projects I need to finish!!
Wow!! Here is my little funny face boy Albert at a schooling show!! Go # 908!! Dusty Devoe and I went to a horse show Saturday where five girls from the barn participated!! We had alot of fun cheering them on!! One little Gray Dappled horse I was especially interested in seeing was Albert!! He has alot of training and I am so happy that he has someone who is riding him!!
Meet Haley. She is only 12 years old and been taking lessons for a year and is doing wonderful!!
She is the kind of girl I would love to have my granddaughter hang out with. She is a sweetheart!! I was very disappointed that I had to leave before the Western Pleasure came on. So I missed seeing them, but you can be sure that I am going to go next month and watch!! I want to see just what my funny faced little boy can do!! Go Albert and Haley!! I will be cheering you on!!

Today I am going to share with you one of my secret desires!!
I have always wanted to be an artist!! We have a couple in the family who are pretty good! This last summer I even bought a book to help teach you to draw, some paper and pencils. But alas, I never did anything with them. So I have made up my mind that this Spring when the weather gets nicer I am going to fix up myself an artist's loft to work in! Well, actually just a small space
that I can call all my own!! I have seen some very talented people on blogs!
I envision all kinds of ways that I could fix up my space!
Oh my goodness! I don't think so!!
I like this one really well, but don't have a space this big!!
Next my tools of the trade!
An artist's pallet!
I love these silver tins to hold supplies!
I sit here and ponder what should I start first!!
I know that I want to start drawing first is animals!
I would love to learn how to stipple. I really am drawn to this kind of drawing!
Naturally I would love to be able to draw my favorite!!
I think these are beautiful!
Maybe I will even get brave and do watercolor!
One of my daughters is very talented! She drew these by looking at the work of other artist's! The first one here she did for her grandfather because it reminded her of him.
This next one is a picture of Jacquelin KennedyOnassis when she was a little girl!
A picture of an old fisherman perhaps!
A couple of pictures of little girls!!
I think that she should be the one to become an artist!!
When I get my little room all fixed up and start my drawings I will let you see how I do!! Thank you for coming to Peek A Boo Tuesday!!
