Celebrate the Creative - Pixies and Grandma

Often when I am visiting my mom. who is 95 years old, I bring a bag of wool and work on my orders.  We sit together, hang out, and gab.  For me, time is an issue, so I need to work on orders when I can.  But I have noticed how my mom enjoys watching something being created from nothing. The creative process expands out and envelops others with good energy. This is the same when we make things while in the space with our young children and grandchildren.  They soak in the inner and outer purposeful and wonderful activity of it all.  Today I made 2 pixies for an order while there, wrapping colors round and round, shaping, needling, and before long a magical being becomes.  Here are some photos of the progress.
