Thanksgiving has come and gone and Christmas is beginning to tiptoe its way into our little woodland cottage. No tree yet. I will wait a bit longer for that. But, a few small touches of holiday cheer here and there are nice. Never is our little home more cozy and comfortable than at this time of year.
After all the flurry of cooking and preparation for having our family over for the Thanksgiving meal, things have once again settled into a quiet, comfortable rhythm here. A small break before we get caught up in the Christmas whirlwind. While everyone else I know went shopping on Friday, we stayed home, sat by the fire, ate leftovers, napped, and I experimented with paint and stitch. Can you recognize this bird? It is suppose to be an English robin! I need to work on my drawing skills, I think :) You may remember that I have tried this technique before on this fish. I really enjoyed making it, so I am exploring the technique again in hopes of maybe creating some woodland themed Christmas ornaments. We'll see.
How about you? Do you have any holiday projects in the works?
