Dear son's new piano song for this week is called Chant Arabe. It's a very melodramatic piece that blends flawlessly with the winter landscape.
See what you think...
DS's piano instructor said the song was about a man traveling in the desert with no water, then he thinks he sees water, but alas, it's just a mirage.
Winter is a desert in the absense of the sun.
Thin boney tree branches reaching for an empty sky.
A scenery nearly void of color.
Very Edger Allan Poe "ish", wouldn't you say?
On a less dramatic note and certainly a more cheery one, I made this motif last night:
It's my Winter Blooms motif from Crochet World's December 2011 issue.
I'm going to go up a hook size. I did this one with an "E" hook and sport weight cotton yarn.
The motif is a series of cluster stitches. Some are 4dc-tog, some are 2sc-tog. I may do something a little different with the final round also. We'll see.
It was fun to get this out though and re-make it.
I hope your weekend gets off to a great start!
Weight Watchers, grocery shopping and a new soup recipe are on my agenda for the weekend.
The stuff life is made of.
Toodles my friends,
