Boat Friday

 

Something a bit different "just for the halibut."

Happy weekend sailing into the last month of the year.

the final result is wonderful, Ginnie. this is a good test of patience and perseverance, i feel.
Ginnie Hart: This is a good example of how I love to use my extracurricular time, Ayush, besides coloring! smile
I love this, Ginnie! Beautiful work!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. The kind of thing that brings out the Child in me. smile
Connect the dots! I haven't done that for decades.
Ginnie Hart: You'd be surprised what's out there right now for adults. Some in my book are much more complicated than this and would not work well for many children.
Cela e rappelle mon enfance lorsque je reliais les chiffres comme ici.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Martine. I think this brings out the Child in all of us. smile

Ooooeere.. crikey, this takes me back so many years. I,be not done join the dots since I was a child (well, a younger child than I am now smile ) it always came as a surprise when even the simple shapes appeared. This is very clever.
Ginnie Hart: And this is one of the easiest ones in my adult books, Alan. Definitely brings out the Child in me. smile

WOWSER, this turned out perfect for a Boat Friday. I know that this gives you so much pleasure and I can relate with the story Alan told about childhood and the wonders that appear after finishing 'connecting the dots...
Happy Sailings wink....
Ginnie Hart: So many creative "challenges" to keep us oing for a long time, Astrid. smile

Niiice...it look quite like embroiderie, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ray, and I see your point. I hadn't yet thought of that!

I remember doing this sort of thing when I was a child Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It tells you something, Chris, that I've started doing them again. smile
J'aime aussi faire ces "points relier "..Bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: They're fun and relaxing, Claudine, aren't they! Merci.
Very pretty, but I can't believe that pun!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Larry, and...HA! I learned that years ago from a boss who said it all the time. smile

Your patience and steady hand always impress me
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Lisl. A steady hand is something I've always had. I wonder if it'll last "forever?"
Oh ja...die tekeningen zijn altijd leuk om te maken.
Echt ontspannen
@ Kunt U echter Nederlands lezen?
Ginnie Hart: Fun, yes, Marjolein. And what I can't read in Dutch, I put into the Bing translator. Bedankt.

Joining the dots, how I used to enjoy that as a child. Is this your work Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: This is my work (the joining of the dots), yes, Chad. It's one of my favorite pastimes, after coloring!
Un jeu qui me renvoie quelques dizaines d'années en arrière.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Pascale. But like adult coloring books, they're coming back now with adult dot-to-dot books that are really challenging...many with more than 1,000 dots each. This book uses different colors for its designs.
neat picture sister... i don't know how you can still yourself enough to do such things!! my brain would be bonking around in my head the whole time lol
Ginnie Hart: Intricate work like this is part of who I am, Elaine, and helps to "still" me, like coloring. Who know that they'd start making adult coloring and dot-to-dot books like this to help me meditate. smile
I hope you used an old quill pen to achieve this masterpiece.
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Martin, I have a set of Staedtler fineliners (0.3mm) that work perfectly for these colored dot-to-dots!
Now you have to develop one of your own to challenge the rest of us smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, I'm not good at creating them, Tom, but I sure love working them.
OMG, aleady December!?
How time flies!
I bet grandson N is so much taller than you now!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, LC. Look at him here with Astrid: http://ginniehart.blogspot.nl/2017/11/america-2017-with-my-family.html

Great creation that you've made here!! This reminds me of those "string art" projects I used to do as a child. Thanks for the memories!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Steven. Lots of memories!
It reminds me of embroidery. Happy December. I know it is a special month for you.
Ginnie Hart: Someone else said the same thing, Mary. Lots of memories for us all.
I used to like doing these things when I was a youngster, it needs a steady hand to get the best drawings.
Ginnie Hart: You should see the complicated designs they now have for adults, Brian! This was one of the easier ones in my book.
Hahaha verygood Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: The things we get to do in our Second Childhood, Bill. smile
superbe!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: The things you get to do when you're a Big Child, JP. smile
> I like that you used different pen colours to connect the dots.
Ginnie Hart: In this particular book, Jacquelyn, the dots themselves tell you what color to use. Very cleverly done.
