Art, Crafts and Quotes from The Travelling Grandma

7 Quick Takes Friday

I must share some of my newest discoveries on Pinterset- absolutely stunning images of Mary, churches and other Catholic Art and spirituality. Images really do speak a thousand words, especially when painted, carved or crafted under the inspiration of the Creator



For the last couple of weeks, I have stayed with a daughter who is on bedrest to prevent a premature delivery, helped daughter-in-law and my newborn grandson and  babysat for another daughter while she and her husband finalized buying a beautiful country home. I  have kept busy by writing articles,blogging and asking advice about publishing a book. I have crocheted babyshower gifts and Easter gifts.SO….

My new title is the Travelling, Crocheting Grandma.

I have just discovered baby booties and I am having a lot of fun creating something with a mere steel hook and some wool.

5. quote for the week
