Happy Winter Solstice!

It's been busy around here lately! I managed to hook up a new owl for Christie who owns PORCH in Carpinteria. The little squirrel goes to her granddaughter too.

Five new foxes posed in our front yard for their photo before heading off to Solvang for the Holidays.

Miss kitty has on her new Christmas sweater.

We put up our tree and got it decorated with mostly handmade ornaments.

My shelf is stocked for the Holidays at the Art Hus in Solvang.

Mr. Gnome posed for a quick photo with big rabbit and some paper mache mushrooms I made and put on some birch wood rounds so they would stand up properly.

And the loveliest gift showed up in the mail from Constanza Berger! I just love this little dollie with her pet scottie and real leather handbag. We've yet to meet in person but she is joining us for our Fiber workshop in Oaxaca in February 2014. Can't wait!

I filled up a shelf that has been sitting on the floor for months with fun little mushrooms, gnomes, birds, and hedgehogs.

And out of the archives...a hooked pillow called "Forest Girl"...

and Mushroom House....

Hope your Holidays are Happy and full of Joy!
