Red knitted scarf

It was my youngest boy's birthday (7) and I asked the oldest one (9) if he had an idea for a present he wanted to give him.  He delighted in pulling out of his pocket a red woollen scarf that he had knitted at school for his brother's toy  "moufflon".  How cool is that!

More Christmas

Since I was not posting for so long, I have many photos of little things I made 
up to and during the Christmas holidays:

 I found some plain cut-out angels like these when I unpacked the ornaments
I thought I was pretty clever having cut them out last year...
...but thought myself even more clever to carve stamps this year
and stamp wings and faces on new cut-out angels.

With those stamps, I stamped a bunch of cards and sold them at a Holiday Faire.
I also sent some out, but, though I had intended to send them ALL out,
that did NOT happen..... sigh.......

Still, I hope all holidays were good and that you are ALL
as excited about the New Year as I am.

BTW, I am teaching at Briancon (!) this summer
and we will be carving some of our own rubber stamps
along with LOTS of other things.

home for the holidays

Here is our kitchen mantel during
the holidays:
I guess this photo doesn't really show all the details,
but it does make me smile.

Hope everyone's holidays were great...
