Hat completed: This is not the best picture of Cat but I took it before she left for school this morning. She wore the hat today. "Old man winter" has returned.
This is the picture on my Catherine Simpson calender for March. This is totally today - cold, windy, snowing lightly. If you need to talk with anyone from Saskatchewan today you might not expect them to be very cheerful.
I love Catherine's work. I have her plates for each of the seasons and also have a tiny little card of the image which appears when you first enter her web-site. Take time to peek at Catherine's paintings. It will be time well-spent.
I love knitting. I'm not certain what the next project will be. I'll start another hat with different wool because Cat really wants to learn to knit also. I'd started her with some cotton yarn but realized - NOT good for a beginner, especially. I might actually start a third hat as I'll be doing road trips before I can get directions for starting something else new - socks I think.
I have made a decision to try to get immersed in clean-up but also want to start the etsy shop. I hope my energy does not wane in the next couple of weeks. I will remain optimistic - huh - better remember to breathe occasionally too.
I will try to do first installment of "art as business" over next few days. I will talk about more than just the seminar.
Angels be with you.

Oh Wendy, I love Catherine Simpson's work and had never heard of her before, so thanks very much for that link. Such gorgeous paintings..
Cat looks fantastic in that hat!! Well done you!! :D That's great, that she wants to learn to knit, too. I taight Josh when he was about 6 years old, but I don't think he's done any since then! ;)
I hope you're keeping warm - those blue skies have turned back to grey here today - yuk. Not to worry, soon be blue again..
Have a great day, Wendy, and huge congrats on the knitting - I'm so proud of you!! :)
Huge Hugs, Suze xXx
