It's very grey and foggy out this Monday morning. Cold too! I love turning on the lights of our tiny Christmas tree and sipping coffee by the fire.
I really try to stay someplace within the topic of fiber creations on my blog. Here's a shot of a little Santa mom made about 25 years ago. She made tiny dolls and sold them in shops located in several places around the U.S. Someday I'll do a posting showing you all the many intricately sewn, dyed, stuffed, and glued characters she made. Any creativity I may have now, has all been showered on to me by my lovely mother. There's nothing she can't do!
I'm knitting a wrap for my mom for Christmas. I'm using the subtle rib stitch and just love the way it's turning out. Apparently Iris finds it to be a comfortable place to snuggle up next to.
Yes, yes....it's another bag. But it does have a home, and I really need to get it made. I imagine you are tired of seeing hooked roses every time you check in at the "doorstep". Although, I do so love the image of a rug on the frame in front of a warm (although gas lit) fireplace and thought you might enjoy it too. It makes me feel warm, cozy, and puts me in the mood to hook. But I do really need to break out of this "rose thing"....
So.......working on ideas for a new little mat. I'm playing with the idea of "Outside My Kitchen Window". After all these bags, I'm psyched to start something new!
