Do you know Nicole’s patterns?  They’re delightful. 

Errr. I did buy these patterns when purchasing the others in the post below.  I’m weak, I could not leave them behind. I’m posting these seperately because I feel Ms. Avezathe needed her own entry so I can display her works properly.

Magpie Patterns

I long for this pattern:

Bee Keeper's Quilt

but of  course, I can’t have it right now, their out of stock. It’s called Beekeepers Quilt and it’s by tiny owl knits and offered to buy through Magpie  I can totally make those hexagons through winter!  Work-shmurk! I can’t wait!

Instead,  I filled out a restock notification request, and to appease my disappointment I moved onto another item(…s) for my pattern collection.  For, you know, sometime.

With One Enormous Chair

sigh- I’m now whole.

Autumn has arrived

Autumn has arrived.  Suddenly, my fingers want to knit something.  I’m tracing out a baby pant pattern tonight, which is a break from my journey into the elements and principles of art, and sketchbooks and other things like that. I keep a art journal called apaintedturtle through WordPress. 

When I went to check my dashboard, I noticed WordPress’ ,Create a new blog option.  Well, why not?  I’ll keep all my homespun geekery on a seperate blog.  Yes, I like it.  Sadly, the blog name Winterhearts is taken.  Since my other artful blog is named apaintedturtlethen this one had to be A Snug Snail.
