Happy New Year!

It has been so nice to take a mini-vacation at home with the last week off to relax and be mellow! I am seeing movies, having lunches, catching up with friends, and finishing a plethora of knitting projects that were supposed to be gifts, but . . . . It is lovely!

I wanted to share this lovely email card I got from the very talented Leigh Wells. Her work is one of my biggest inspirations, not to mention that she is one of the nicest women on the planet! Her style and sense of humor rock! Thank you Leigh!

I also want to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who has been so super supportive and read this blog these last 9 months! This online comunity we crafters and artists have established is just the best! I am inspired by your comments and photos. I really feel like participating has helped me to keep pushing myself, my work, and my awareness. The emails and contacts I receive have been amazing. My dream to be a working artist, is coming true due in large part to this
community. Thank you for all that you do!

So, have a very safe and Happy New Year!!! I promise to be back next week!! For now, back to my cup of tea and knitting!

We wish you a very Merry!

A quick post to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! We are having a lovely dinner tonight that I have been slowly cooking today in between cleaning the house. This is my first big hoiday meal, and although tonight will just be me and Tom I am a little nervous that it will all be timed correctly. i am the kind of cook who likes to make things up, so I hope that my guesstimates on oven time pan out!

Of course the cats want to lie in the last place you want them too! Best wishes to all!! Be back next week!
