here and here. I will also go downtown and check out our great local fabric store, Sarah's Fabrics. I have a sweet little white embroidered skirt and a grey cashmere sweater for a bunny that I've already sewn. I better get busy knitting more bunnies for all the clothes I have in mind. Hope you are all keeping warm and spirits up. Would you believe I still have my real evergreen Christmas tree up on the front porch decorated now with Valentine hearts? The birds like to roost there when the wind is fierce and it is the only colorful green thing outdoors.

Bunny still needs his eyes woven in, nose embroidered on, and a new cap and vest sewn up. He'll be in my shop soon.

The sun doing her very best today...
I am so happy that I had a lovely and happy Christmas with my sweet husband and that Logan was able to come home and be with us too. I had so much fun decorating the tree that Oz cut down. I love that it is still on the front porch to greet everyone in the neighborhood. The girl scout who came to the front door this weekend selling cookies was so excited to see the ornaments and wool felt garlands on the evergreen tree that greeted her.
I've been trying to walk at least 45 minutes everyday. That ends up being 3 miles. Yesterday on my walk I asked myself some questions. "Is there anything I need from me? Do I have a warm enough winter coat?" Yes, I still have the orange Eddie Bauer coat that must be 20 years old now but kept me warm today on my 3 mile walk. I am working on mothering myself.
I bought myself something fun for Christmas with money from Joan! The beautiful Zady sweater is keeping me warm on these arctic-like winter days. I love that it is All American!
I have sooo much to be excited about in 2015 ~ the wedding, a new daughter, so much love in my family. I love my family of men.
Please help me with this new year. I feel overwhelmed sometimes. I want your encouragement and kindness and understanding.
with affection, M
