Winter Solstice...

Warm wishes to you on this Winter Solstice evening!
We got our tree up last week and the presents are starting to pile up. I think most of them are for Justin who also has a Dec. 29 birthday and made lists for us in detail. I had some errands to do downtown and then got in a winter beach walk and a quick trip to the thrift store where I found 2 nice sweaters to felt. Then on home as a light rain began to fall. I built a fire in the fireplace, lit a few candles and then it's time to bake some cookies for the boys.
This little folk owl is now finished and stuffed...but this is how it looked in the beginning stages.
A little wool village of house pin cushions that I had hoped to finish before Christmas. Now I need to get out my basket of felt and trims and have fun embellishing these little cottages. They may be ready to take up to "Muse" in the Napa Valley where we are heading after Christmas for a little vacation.
