It's Done!

The lap afghan was finished just in time for a cold day at Minute Maid Park.
(In case anyone wonders, our Owls won all three baseball games last weekend.)
I plan on making several more lap afghans.
They are just handy!

I've talked about some of our *tribe* members in other posts.
Here is a frame that my favorite niece made.
Her mother (one of my best buddies and one of my chosen sisters) went to visit and
came back with the frame for me. K is a wonderful artist and unfortunately
doesn't have the time right now to spend on her art. Her husband
is a marvelous photographer. K and Z have a new home
and a baby on the way.
They have a blog OUR TIMES. Go by and say *Hello! Your Auntie sent me!*

Back to the frame! I couldn't decide what picture to put in the frame. Then I thought
that I had been hanging on to a picture of K and Z, just waiting for the perfect frame and voila. This has to be the perfect one!
Here they are -- mom and dad to be -- precious members of our tribe.

The frame wasn't the only surprise in the bag.
K made these wonderful note cards
in two different sizes.
They are mixed media with stamping and collage.

Aren't they great?!!!

I love note cards and I love that she made these for me.

Happy Tuesday everyone!
I hope the sun is shining brightly wherever you are and there is a smile on your face!

Oh wow! Everything is so pretty!
For some reason I haven't thought about creating a mixed media / distressed / abstractly painted frame although I do all of those things! Very neat afghan as well. I need to research why it's called afghan. I see a blanket but I've heard afghan so many times.

what a beautiful afghan! it looks so snuggly and warm. my mom used to crochet afghans and ponchos (remember those?) for me back in the 70s. now i see a big resurgence in these handcrafted items.

"K" is quite talented with al those projects she made for you! I am sure the lucky recipient of those notecards will appreciate its handmade goodness!
