My niece Sophia has developed opinions about what she will and will not wear. She also lives in San Francisco which is not enough of any kind of weather to reasonably predict the usefulness of hand knitted lovelies. This is a huge contrast to Illinois, which has every kind of weather plus the word "very" in front of it. So she went ahead and had a cousin named Luka. He lives in Portland. It snows there. As far as I know, he's still a wee soul with no clothing opinions to speak of. HAH!
Silk/Blue Faced Leceister blend dyed Indigo by me at one of Toni's workshops. Debbie Bliss pattern from the library. Buttons from JoAnns. Never fails, everytime I go to JoAnns I always find the most perfect buttons.Posted by Jacqueline at 09:25 AM | Permalink | Comments (0)

It’s been almost a year since I’ve posted, almost a year of waiting for the perfect time coupled of course with share worthy inspiration. Even though I’ve had enough of both, I’ve puttered. A LOT! It was during that puttering that it occurred to me that the life I’ve always wanted is already here. I’ve been so focused on tomorrow that I didn’t notice it. Now seems the best moment and here the best place. To celebrate I’m cleaning my room. Yes, on Christmas Day! On a very cold and snowy Christmas Day, I’m going through my assorted stashes and gifting, and in some cases regifting, projects in waiting.
So Happy Christmas! And even happier puttering. It's going to be a great year.Posted by Jacqueline at 08:52 AM | Permalink | Comments (0)
