Happy Thanksgiving!


Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! 
So grateful for all the many blessings in my life. I have wonderful friends, a supportive family and get to spend time doing art.  And a bit of travel thrown in too!


Here is the family dining table before I got it cleaned off for Thanksgiving. It's my favorite spot for all the various art projects that I have going on. My sewing machine is on the end to the left. I'm sure it will go back on the table tomorrow!


I have been busy making lots of things since we returned from Mexico. These funny little guys are off to a show and sale at Art From Scrap for the month of December. All of the linen animals were created from one sample book of designer Italian linen that I found at the reuse store. I loved all the dots and have enough to make a few more.


Beaded hearts make nice ornaments and a great way to use up some of those beads that we collect.


Some wool owls and a little wolf went off to the Art Hus in Solvang.


Mrs. Crow and her friends below will be going to "Just folk" in Summerland tomorrow for their annual Christmas tree.




A few hooked ornaments that were pretty quick to make.


Mr. Gnome took a few evenings to hook.


And more hearts with a kind of primitive look for Just folk.


I made 20 dog ornaments for their tree this year out of felted sweaters.


Hope you all have some creative time this week.

 I still have quite a few projects to finish up before the Holiday Marketplace sale at the Wilding Museum on Dec. 6 in Solvang. Come by and say Hello if you are in the area! I hope to have lots of new hooked items for sale.
