Compliment, Knitting and Frida

30 Jan

It’s National Compliment Day and this delightful one made my day, a quotation from Maurice Sendak, author of the wonderful children’s book, ‘Where the Wild Things Are’.

On #NationalComplimentDay, an all-time anecdote from a 1986 interview with NPR’s Terry Gross

The following is, I hope, a piece of knitting that will appeal to the cat lovers out there. I wish I had made it!

Sorry, don’t know the designer

Another piece of loveliness that came my way today, another piece I wish I had the skill to make!

Frida – Made by Tara Williamson

    What 3 wonderful and beautiful things you quote and show. It does your name of the blog justice. You always find the most amazing things, I love the compliment the jumper and the glass- fantastic.

      It was a good day wasn’t it? Some days the beautiful things just leap out at me and say, put me in your post!

    I enjoy all of your posts, but this one might be the most smile-inducing of all! (So far.)

    And a heartfelt compliment to you, Sally, for constantly sharing these delightful joys with us. Frida is stunning; the cat sweater is brilliant. But the Sendack comment will keep me smiling all day!

    Frida = FANTASTIC.
    Same with the sweater.

    And cute quote!

      I was particularly pleased with those three things. Sometimes the blog is so easy when things have turned up so serendipitously. πŸ™‚

    The Frida glass is stunning, but I have no doubt that if you put your mind to it you could create something equally beautiful. And that jumper is purrfect 😻

      Yes, I love the jumper and will have to hone my skills to make anything quite so complicated. Thank you for your encouragement. πŸ™‚
