Lessons from the grand kiddies


The shortbread has been eaten.  The last day of the calendar is here and normal returns very soon.

During this year I have learned a thing or three.


There are many lessons to learn and many instructors but it isn't until you have your own hands on the controls that the real experience begins.  Also, The Grand Dad knows where of he speaks when he says you don't touch any remote buttons unless you have the machine in sight!


You need a good foundation and even then, the sky is not the limit!


Even with only a few balls, one will inevitably get down the register!



AND- You can't have it all!

And I have indeed wanted it all.  Most every colour and style that delights my eye, every technique that makes my fingers twitch,  and all the supplies to play with.  It is like shortbread, you can't just have one!

I have been working on the triple F's, Focus, Fiddle/Find and Finish and I expect I will always be working on them.  I have learned a lot since I have been blogging.  I expect to learn more.  T'is true.  One is never too old to be taught!

You have great teachers but then they have had a great teacher, also! We, probably, should give their parents a little credit, too! Looking forward to being inspired by all you accomplish in the coming year. Happy New Year!
