Slowly Knitting Along...
Here is that delicious pink yarn that my friend Sandy gifted me with for the donation scarf to Vicki's project.
I haven't spent much time with this as the season is busy with other priorities. When I do pick up my knitting needles it is with great peace and joy that I knit a section and put my healing hugs and love into each stitch.
With so few holiday decorations put out this year I must say this is the number one I display and enjoy. My dear friend Bev (no blog) quilted this for me and I cherish her and her gift to me. It is beautiful and sew well made. She included little charms that represent things I like...a mouse and a little Mary Jane shoe for example. Such a gift of love. I will pass this along to my daughter and granddaughters some future day for them to enjoy for years to come. Thank you Bev. You are a dear heart.
Isn't this a beautiful collage of cards and papers and trims?!! My blog friend Robbie of Robbies Paw Prints made this. This is the back.
Here is the front and you can see she mailed it to me. How fun to go to my mailbox and find this instead of all the boring bills that usually fill the box. I love all the decorative stitching and bits of cards and papers.
This will definitely be on my list of "want to make".
Inside the envelope was a hand-written note from Robbie along with this beautiful piece of her Shibori Mandala hand-dyed fabric. It is such a work of art and I shall be taking my time to come up with just the right project to use this in. Thank you Robbie dear. You and your creative talents are amazing!
Just a few short days and Christmas will be here. Santa is very busy and I will make certain that our stockings are hung by the chimney with care. Our weather is very cold...for sunny California! I do forget that this is not the Sunny Southern California I lived most of my life but now it is Northern California with seasons and cold and rain and snow. Brrrrrrr... We do have lots of rain and snow predicted for four days beginning tomorrow. Today it looked like a frozen ice land outdoors. Beautiful but chilly and icy roads.
I am enjoying all of your posts and decorations and inspirations. There are so many beautiful creations. I have lots of ideas in my head. Thank you each and everyone for sharing so generously.
May you enjoy this holiday season and make lasting memories with family and friends...
