Sophia - Finished Painting

Let me introduce you to Sophia, a beautiful and strong young woman! She's had her share of heartbreak to deal with, but she came away stronger and wiser than most her age.

One of the things that helped her was her knitting, her pretty cowl and slouch beanie being just one example of all the beautiful things she has made.

Linking this to the wonderful Paint Party Friday!!

We are leaving on a road trip tomorrow morning and will be gone for a week. Even though I am taking my laptop with me, I'm not sure when and if I will have internet connection to either post here or check in with you all!

In case I don't, I wish you all a beautiful and creative week!!

  4. Hi Silke.
    I LOVE Sophia ~ I think she is my favorite girl so far. Your girls are evolving and becoming more real and detailed. She is beautiful. I also love the little hearts you have been knitting, felting, and embellishing. You give me hope that the creations in my head will become real someday when I have some time for myself.
    Have a wonderful trip!!
