One of Goody's birthday gifts from me was some watercolor paints and paper. I'm not exactly sure why we did not paint until now, but she really loves it. This was her first painting. She is really into mixing colors, layers, and painting circles. She does trianlges now, too.
Oh, and for whatever reason, she will NOT allow this to be posted for public viewing on the refrigerator. I've tried and she slides a chair over and takes it down every single time.

Goody has learned about flowers; most of them she finds "pretty" or "cute". We can hardly walk past one without her saying "touch it". I always say yes and she does so very delicately. Such a little lady! She is always sure to mention the color of the flower as well. I hear about the purple and white crocus by our front stairs every day.
Today, I was searching online for the appropriate stitch for attaching rick rack by hand (I'm using some vintage rick rack sent from Mississippi for a work in progress, hopefully finished today and blogged asap) and I came across the amazing rick rack flowers. I've searched before about a million times for fabric flowers, but I never saw these.
The tutorial for these oh-so-springy rick rack flowers is blogged at Knick Knacks and Ric Rac , which is a behind-the-scenes blog for madewithlovebyhannah.com. They do have some lovely hand made clothing in their shop. I am going to add these flowers to my impossible to-do list.
