From the Book, Project 6 - Mail Basket (on left) and My Version (on right)!!
Pretty neat huh? As I was getting ready to write this post I did a bit of looking around the internet for details about the author. It really is a small world, because what I discovered is that Ms. Nicholas lives in the same region of Massachusetts that I do! Now we're not next door neighbors, but all things considered we're close enough that I'm sure we've driven on the same roads and shopped in the same stores! It's a rural area so we're pretty lenient about what we consider close by!! Now are you ready for another bit of coincidence that will make you say wow?? Do you remember about a month ago when I decided it was time to learn how to knit and I got myself a stack of books from the library? Well, the first book that I opened up when I got home and the one that I am still referring to on a regular basis because of it's easy to understand illustrations is called Kids Knitting by Melanie Falik. Guess who illustrated that book? You got it - Kristin Nicholas!! Now I'm not sure what the universe is trying to tell me, but I feel confident that there is a message in there somewhere. It seems like our paths are destined to cross and I'm curious about what the future holds. In the meantime though I'll settle for making more sunflowers and working on my knitting skills!!
