Been busy. Making hundreds—no, thousands—no, millions of crochet star ornaments. (OK, maybe not that many, but a lot. I adapted this pattern to suit my needs.)
The Christmas season has begun with a panicked shuffle as I realized I needed some items earlier than usual and couldn’t be bothered to think this through earlier in the year. I think I have a few more days of burning the candle at both ends and almost entirely neglecting my children (I forgot to feed them breakfast yesterday! At eleven o’clock I was politely asked if they could please eat now. Mother of the year!) and then I can catch my breath (and maybe add a more seasonal blog banner). Until then….
Just a quick digital addition to one of my watercolor owls to wish a happy Thanksgiving to those in the States. I have so very much to be thankful for, and that includes you, my bloggie friends. If you’re celebrating, I hope your day is full of all the good things!
Santa placed an order for two of my stuffed foxes, and I decided to back them in soft, plaid flannel. There was flannel left over, and you know how it goes with scrap fabric: One piece turns into a stack turns into a box-full that you just can’t part with! So, to avoid an overflowing scrap bag, I had no choice but to use up the rest of the flannel on a few more woodland friends. The extra critters will be in the shop.
