The Spirit of the Season
My sister gave me those lovely project bags (that she made!) and the quince yarn and that wee button for my Christmas or birthday gift. Sadly I cannot recall since we exchange our birthday gifts during the Christmas exchange. I have been heavily hinting that I wanted some project bags. This was the hint: 'hey sis, I really want you to sew me a project bag' . When we were at the fiber festival, I pointed out several that I wanted her to make me. See? That's how you get it done. Anyways, I put some pretty red wool in the red project bag, gearing up for casting on some socks for my daughter.
My husband gets his stitches out of his hand tomorrow morning - hallelujah! These two weeks have been challenging. I'm ready for him to resume all previous duties that were agreed upon when we married. I'm sure he is more than ready to take a shower without wrapping up his hand to keep dry.

My house is decorated and each evening I sit and enjoy the lights. I enjoy decorating the house, so many items were crafted by my mother and I remember her when I place each one out for everyone to see. I treasure all of them!
Both my sister and I inherited her creativity. My mother would sew, quilt, knit, crochet, cross stitch and do some embroidery. I grew up watching her sit in her rocking chair with her crafting tools beside her on the side table.
I have her knitting notebook of sweaters she made for my kids and my nephew with the measurements, needle size and yarn brands listed. She wrote tallies for each and every row. (I do not do that at all....). She would have loved Ravelry.

Hope your Spirit of the Season is joyful :)
