Today is the Day!







Yes, my friends today tis the day to CELEBRATE! CELEBRATE! Dance to the music! Celebrate What? That has been the question I have been asking, but no one seems to get it, but have come very, very close! I am celebrating today by giving away some of my original art as shown in previous posts! But you still need to at least try and guess what I am CELEBRATING!

I was so inspired after doing the "Larkspur" painting yesterday, I decided to paint a picture for my very good friend, Patty. Patty has been with me through thick and thin! She's a true gift and blessing from God in my life the past few years. She loves me and accepts me for who I am and I truly appreciate her for taking the time to know me for who I am and what I am about! It's a rare a precious thing to have someone take interest in another and to take time to develop a deep, true friendship that is of mutual interest aside from first impressions and vague notions or heresays! I thank God for having a friend like Patty in my life! Patty, here is your sunflower, I have titled it "Patty's Sunflower."

Back to the CELEBRATION! Tonite, around 8:00pm MST, I will announce what this has been all about! Please keep trying guessing, I love to give away gifts, and if no one gets it, you will still qualify for a gift - did I mention there's a skein of my favorite color of Koigu with a free hat pattern I designed(that's what the pic of me are about)! It was first inspired by the lovely Koigu yarn. Then I saw the pattern, Dragon Scales and fell in love with it! One day, it just came all together, I could use the yarn that I had been searching for practically my entire adult life (since I was 17 and fell in love with yarn). Oh, the yarn a loverly mix which gives me the impression of a splocity tie-dye from the late 60s. And the dragons scale pattern, well, there's a story behind this: I was born in the Chinese Year of the Dragon and always thought it would be cool to wear something dragony, but I am so picky about what I wear. See being a Christian and being brought up to not come across as being worldly or take on any symbols or signs, and then all the legalism involved, well, I think you get the picture? So, see? I can discretly wear this pattern and feel a whimsy of delightful thoughts of what a strong personality and traits of the dragon like creature I have, but still have the assurance of not being misjudged as something I am not! It is a good thing to sometimes pretend and go to some magical places in the mind, I hope you agree!

Keep those guesses coming, I am off today with Patty to do some stashing and will be back later!

Those are great photos. You look so happy! And the painting and hat are wonderful.

Are you celebrating the day you became a Christian or the day you were baptized?
