Look at the treasures I got yesterday! My sweet and talented daughter Kristen gave me her art quilt entry from The Quitled Raven’s Winter Raven Challenge! Isn’t it just wonderful? I hung it above my reading light in the bedroom here at the ski cabin, that way I can think of her when she’s far away each time I snuggle into bed to read.
My friend and fellow artist Jules made me a “Solstice Raven” wall hanging from one of the Raven panels I gave her! Look at the delicious fabrics she used. I hung this also in the cabin near our bookshelf.
You know how I’ve become smitten about sheep… Since the temperatures have been below zero these new Hafinger boiled wool slippers (to replace the well worn mulit-color pair my sister bought me a couple of years ago) were a welcomed gift from my dear friend Pat. She always picks out just the coolest gifts for me! Aren’t these slippers just fab?! The sweet little sheep is wooly white and I can even step out onto the deck wearing them because the slippers are sturdy, felted wool with latex soles and wool covered cork foot beds. They’ve been perfect to wear in the studio too –that’s how I wore out the pair my sister gave me. I just might have to check out their other shoes at the Alaska Walking Store after seeing the Hafinger web site where it says “Step into a friendship.”
Gus has a new Wii with Wii Fit Plus and Wii Sport. My week-long chest cold is getting better but now I have a pulled butt muscle from a Christmas Wii Bowling and Bobsledding Tournaments -and I think Daddy-O is hiding a sore shoulder. What was Santa thinking?!
