Knitted Love

I had the idea for this painting a while back. I thought it was quite funny. I thought it might make a good painting. What if you could just knit up your very own sweetheart? Wouldn't that be lovely?

Luckily, with my knitting skills, I didn't have to. But he does have a beard. Man fiber-art :)

Also, thanks for all your nice comments about my post yesterday with the family photos. They are some of my most treasured photos. Until my grandma gave the pack of photos of Lula Mae a few years ago, I had no idea about her. I don't know that I even knew her name. It gives me a little thrill though to know that I've walked the same old down town streets that she walked, and I visited her little house countless times to see my Grandma Kate, who married Lula Mae's son and raised her own family in the same little house. It still stands today and still is in the family.

I think these sort of little ties to history and place and family are one of the benefits of living in a family that didn't move much. Well, we moved a bit but always came back. Bloom where you planted, I suppose.

Have a lovely weekend!~~

  2. I love this! Made me chuckle:) I think you should make it a series. I also loved your family photos - what a priceless collection. To have those things for your daughter when she is old enough to learn about her great-great-great grandmother! Have a great weekend.

  4. Bloom where you're planted ... ever since I read that little gem a few days ago it's been in my head. It perfectly encapsulates what I've always hoped to do but not always managed. The grass isn't always greener on the other side of the fence and I think families that don't go far know that.

    I have a hubby with a beard too :D

  6. Heather, this painting is charming and funny at the same time.

    Bloom where you are planted is one of my favourite sayings for so many reasons. I have been working on a sampler which puts these words into embroidery.

    Have a beautiful Sunday.

  7. I love this! It is so interesting! I wonder how old the bearded man is?! A beard is very unclarifying. Ha. I think you are so very talented and love seeing your work! -Amy

  8. This one made me giggle! There's actually a guy who lives here in Wichita who is probably about my age (20s) and has a beard almost that long! He's
    "hipster" rather than "pioneer," though. Paul and I see him pretty often at our local donut shop--he either works at or owns the florist shop down the street. I have yet to see him with a woman knitting his beard... Just give it time! :-)
