This month has been busy so far. Trying to finish up orders from last year and create new designs. Slowly things are coming into place.
Right now the iceman cometh, freezing rain is falling and my car is covered in ice. That means I will be getting up earlier in the morning to de-ice my car. Who knows what the roads will be like? Maybe it will be a day spent at home if the roads are bad.
The cats are comfortable, curled up in their spots. The calico sprawled on mom's bed and the other asleep on the scratching pad.

This year has started out busy. I did manage to take a few days away from the hares & bears between Christmas and New Year. However, time was spent shopping and picking up last minute items. New Year's Day was spent visiting Grandma and family. Then this week we drove in on Grandma's birthday to get her license renewed for another year. She is 95 and still drives!
I have been trying to develop new designs for 2010. This is my 20th year of making hares & bears. Does that even seem possible? It was just yesterday that I learned to use the sewing machine. Time does fly. I remember some of the early shows that I attended. In my mind, they were a flurry of activity. Mohair being flung overhead, as people dashed to artists' tables to see new creations. I remember spending time at the bottom of the mohair pile searching for the right fabric and finding several pieces for others. I was just 13 at the time. How things have changed amazes me.
Best wishes for a Joyful and Blessed New Year.
