New Year

Y’all have a good Christmas? Ours isn’t quite over yet – part of it got rained out and is rescheduled to the coming weekend.

Ellie finished Gran’s scarf in time.

My sister's house has lots of trees.

She got a GIANT BARBIE HOUSE from Santa. Betty also likes it – she can walk right through the bottom floor like it’s a cat tunnel.

Anna and Elsa are still getting settled in their new place.

I’m trying something new.

Embroidery is REALLY FUN.  I have some ideas.

I plan to have a constant caffein supply all day today. I’m typically asleep by 8:30pm – it’s dark then and time for sleeping – so New Year’s Eve is challenge for me.

Happy New Year!


Merry Christmas!


Although acorns are really better for fall. Unless you like rustic – oohooh or use shiny gold yarn! Or make them as cat toys – just add a little catnip to the stuffing. Or embroider little stuff on the nut part. Or make them really tiny (and variegated) with sock yarn. Or make a REALLY BIG ONE and use it as a throw pillow. I’m totally going to do that for my sister! Nobody tell her.

You can make one in about an hour. I hope someone makes a garland.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

All your stuffed friends can feel Christmasy in their new Santa hats!

Insiders Notes: The white is O-Wool Balance Bulky. I held worsted acrylic doubled for the red – it was all I could find at the last minute. To scale the hat up or down, just change the yarn size. I’d love to see ornaments!

Happy Thanksgiving – and Christmas a little early!
