The Hubby and His Ribbon

The hubby is a very creative type of guy.  He tends to build big stuff, probably because of all his years on the railroad, but about twenty years ago, when I was doing counted cross stitch, he asked what I was doing, and once I showed him, well…I bow to the master.   He has created some beautiful pieces.

This year my friend Donna, who is an artist, talked him into entering one of his pieces in the County Fair Art Show.  Sure enough, he won a ribbon!

I’m pretty proud of him, and I just thought I would share.

    off topic, but you should check this book out… the black book of colors by menena cottin and rosana faria. i found it in the kids section, but i thought it was really cool for anyone. it is written in english print and braille and it describes colors through imagery and all the pictures are raised black line drawings on black paper, so you experience everything through all of your senses except sight. the kids think its cool, all the bumps and raised images, but it really makes you think what it would be like to be blind.

    Thanks for the tip. It does sound cool, and I will see if our local library has it.
