My son Max and his girlfriend Esther have already been and gone for their Christmas visit. Amazingly, they made it here to the Portland area and back to Seattle in the midst of this intense winter storm that's been ongoing. Those Greyhound bus drivers are fantastic.
I don't have many in-progress shots, but this is the present I made for Esther on the machine embellisher.
I purchased a lightweight polar fleece scarf, glove, and hat set.
First I felted little polka dots on it out of hand-dyed bamboo fiber. Then I went back and surrounded them all with this variegated rayon ribbon.
Felting on thin polar fleece is an absolute dream......
This was such a blast to do!
And she sure looks cute modeling them.
Now it is snowing hard again, so Chad, Robert, and I are hunkered down for a quiet and low key Christmas Eve and Day.........and here's some entertainment from our Jewish friends to help us celebrate Hanukkah as well....enjoy!
Wishing you all peace and joy, now and in the coming year.....
