I have been puzzling over what to do for another letter N.
It has been difficult. I mean I had a brain freeze. I was looking through the dictionary to see if I could get any inspiration, but all I got was a headache. So then I just started making different letter N's. Upon doing a lowercase script N, I saw it. NESSIE! Phew! These are getting harder and harder to do!
I use to knit as well as sew, but drawing and designing took over. I was always amazed at those that could knit a sweeter and have all their rows even. If you ever receive something knitted by a friend, treat it with care and reverence for it was made with love.
My last approach with the letter M was M is for Mustache. Although fun, it seemed a bit limited as to my only M offering.
I thought of map, but I have done the map theme before with C is for Compass and G is for Globe, although I may do one yet in that as it could become a theme. Thought of mountains, morning glories, and marigolds as well, but mermaids won out.
The "polar vortex" has kept my yard pretty much covered in snow this winter. Usually there is a spring tease somewhere in February, but alas, this has not happened. The only relief from the winter doldrums is that the days are getting longer and we have had a few days of blue skies to accompany the sunshine.
Here is a little something to brighten up the last dregs of winter. I am keeping and eye out for my robin buddies.
Okay, it is January and we are having record freezing temperatures here. Brrrrr just doesn't describe it. So rather than bemoan the cold, I tried to think of warmer thoughts. So here is a new letter H for my illustrated alphabet series. Don't ask me how I came up with hose in this weather, but the days are getting longer and I have spring on my mind.

I would enjoy hearing from you.
