Bunny still needs his eyes woven in, nose embroidered on, and a new cap and vest sewn up. He'll be in my shop soon.

The sun doing her very best today...
I am so happy that I had a lovely and happy Christmas with my sweet husband and that Logan was able to come home and be with us too. I had so much fun decorating the tree that Oz cut down. I love that it is still on the front porch to greet everyone in the neighborhood. The girl scout who came to the front door this weekend selling cookies was so excited to see the ornaments and wool felt garlands on the evergreen tree that greeted her.
I've been trying to walk at least 45 minutes everyday. That ends up being 3 miles. Yesterday on my walk I asked myself some questions. "Is there anything I need from me? Do I have a warm enough winter coat?" Yes, I still have the orange Eddie Bauer coat that must be 20 years old now but kept me warm today on my 3 mile walk. I am working on mothering myself.
I bought myself something fun for Christmas with money from Joan! The beautiful Zady sweater is keeping me warm on these arctic-like winter days. I love that it is All American!
I have sooo much to be excited about in 2015 ~ the wedding, a new daughter, so much love in my family. I love my family of men.
Please help me with this new year. I feel overwhelmed sometimes. I want your encouragement and kindness and understanding.
with affection, M

Kitty approves! I ordered more Vail yarn from Webs last week and just got it in the mail. Yay! I have to keep it away from Precious the cat because she wants it for herself. I ordered 6 skeins of this incredibly soft baby alpaca and bamboo yarn. I used this yarn for a liner for Logan's hat that I made him for Christmas. No itching and it is warm. I have lots of beautiful wool yarn from Maggie's Farm that I will use to make more Madison Hats.

Logan has returned to chilly Madison already. The house is quiet and I made some delicious cornmeal pancakes to go with the leftover black eyed peas and bacon for dinner. Yum! We are supposed to get snow tonight!

We had a full moon this weekend, the Gemini moon. I wonder if there will be two moons in the sky this month? Could be! It is a magical time of year for me, anyway. We have had a gorgeous autumn and yesterday was cold and foggy. Just my kind of weather. I went to Pam's and we made wreaths and it felt like Santa's workshop. What fun!
