Two of my sisters, Debbie and Jennifer did continue on and both are excellent players. Debbie is my oldest sister and we spent many ours together at the piano. She would play and I would sing. Those were happy times for me and so I love that Kassidy enjoys playing and does it so well. Mr. Honey is a very talented musician and she inherited that from him.
Our home has been filled with the sound of her playing carols and it really brings the spirit of Christmas into my heart. My favorite that she plays is a gorgeous arrangment of Joy to the World...it just takes my breath away. Such a beautiful song and a joyeous message to the world.
I taught a new block yesterday at Material Girls. It's the newest addition to my Paper Doll quilt....and it goes right along with this weeks Piano Recital/Hair Dryer theme.
I had of course already drawn the block and chosen the fabric before I found the Hair Dryer Bonnet at Aunt Elsie's last week....it was so much fun to find it then...right when I was in the middle of appliqueing a hairdryer!
The one in my block is like my Grandma Cranes. Hers is teal and white and still works. She still uses it. She likes to have her hair rolled and combed out. My Grandma Crane is 93 and my Grandma Ewell is 96.....I know I'm really lucky to still have both of them.
I used the new scrumptious velvet ric-rac from Riley-Blake to trim the bottom of the robe. I love that ric-rac and it comes in lots of yummy colors...check it out here...
The real Kassidy paints her toenails once a week (but not under the dryer) .....she has used Grandma Cranes hair dryer while at our luncheons there and I know I took pictures...but I couldn't find them anywhere so I can't show you. You'll just have to imagine how cute she looked in BIG jumbo size pink rollers under the hair dryer. She has VERY curly hair, so she uses big rollers to relax the curl a bit....we all know that she obviously didn't get her curls from me, but also inhereted them from Mr. Honey.
I really had fun with this block...I hope you like it
