Some Christmassy Gift Highlights

It was a quiet and snow-less Christmas this year. We had a very restful couple of days here at home sharing too much food and some pudding made with Bailey's.

Auntie J and the A man sent this very cool and gonna stay out all year round ornament that is a mercury glass whale. I think I'm going to make it a tiny pot of geraniums to hang beside it even though Mr. Jimmy says it's the wrong kind of whale.

The lovely Deb has gifted us this "perfectly us" hand hooked rug made by her pal Patti Armstrong. She uses dyed nylons instead of wool to hook her pieces because she is allergic to wool. This piece was completely unexpected and I love it! It's also going to be an all year round piece.

I made this little guy for Maggs. It was almost impossible to keep it a secret. She kept walking into the room while I was working on it and I had to keep quickly covering up the pieces. She was surprised though and I think she was pleased.

Christmas day Maggs cracked open the clay I got her and started to make her own doll design like the goblin I had made her. She got this far and has decided it will be a pink elephant. I'll keep you posted on the results.

Hope you guys had a rest too.
