This is the view from a window in my studio today. It faces the wood pile so I can see exactly how much wood is left as opposed to how much winter is left!! So far so good! LOL!
It's a pretty view. I'm not much of a winter person even though I was born in December. Three days before Christmas. Yup..... usually no one notices the old gal turned another year older with all the fuss about Christmas and all! That's okay... focus on the reason for the season!!
Did you notice I decorated the little wool feather tree I made and showed a couple of posts back?
I added some little red berries and pine cones to the ends of the branches. A little vintage cardinal adds a bright red pop to the white birch bark base.
We are teaching a class to make your own wool feather tree here in the studio on Sat. January 12th, 2013
It promises to be a fun filled class with good company, a healthy lunch( because we know you all will be on diets right after the Holidays ( wink...) and the latest on what's happening at the Red House in the new year!
So if you are local and would like to sign up or would like more information as to price etc. please email me using the email button in the upper left hand corner of the blog.
I have been working on a little Holiday Wishes applique and embroidery piece. The pattern is a Buttermilk Basin design. We sell the patterns here in the studio.
I'm not that good at embroidery even though I love it.... you may recall some of my past attempts at the feather stitch......! I just can't seem to get the hang of it!! This little piece is supposed to have some feather stitching but I may opt for a simpler cross stitch.
It would be nice to get this done before Christmas!
How is your Holiday prep coming along?
Hope you are way ahead of the game and enjoying all those decorations and beautifully decorated homes I've been spying out there on the blogs!
It's a most wonderful time of the year!!
