  1. Oooh a surprise giveaway - what fun! My favorite childhood memories are all about being outside riding my bike or playing in the woods behind our house.
    I'm a 'silent' follower - love your blog!

    1. hi judy, delighted to hear from you. thank you for sharing your memory. having the woods behind your house sounds like an adventurous childhood.

  2. A follower knows these things - that come Wednesday morning, your surprise giveaway will be delightful.

    As a child, I did not know it then, memories were made every day that I spent with my grandparents on their small farm. Cousins swimming in the river that ran through the property....I can still hear us squeal with joy.

    1. hello marty. thank you.
      my grandparents live (and lived) in different continents so i wasn't able to enjoy that beautiful relationship.
      i think i can hear all that joy you describe with your cousins.

  3. how wonderful with a giveaway,
    thank you for beeing so sweet.

    my favourite childhood memory is without question the time i spent in summer at my grandparents place. they had a garden filled with everything from apples to tomatoes. my grandfathet was a honey- and raspberry farmer. i still think of him everytime i eat or smell raspberries. grandmother used to sit in her chair knitting when i was going to sleep, even now the sound of knittingneedles working still has such a soothing effect on me : )

    1. greetings vibeke. your story just warms my heart. thank you.

  4. Hi! Hope you are feeling well. Your fiber art is beautiful. A favorite childhood memory of mine is when my great auntie Jean, an artist, sent me a big (surprise) box filled with pastels, thick paper, a biography/ watercolor art book about Homer, and lots of greeting cards to recycle in my creative endeavors. I treasured all of these goodies for years and years. She encouraged me always, to play with art. Sigh. Take care, kathy

    1. i am feeling so much better. thank you, kathy. it sounds like your aunt saw that special creative spark in you.

  5. thanks for your kind words here and at my blog!
    my favorite memories:
    playing in the forest with my cousins at our big family meetings once a year.
    best wishes to you
