Sewing box

 

My daughter’s birthday was a couple of months ago. Because the nut doesn’t fall far from the tree, she is a “maker,” like her Mom, so I decided to decorate a box in which she can keep all those little things. I am unable to use my sewing machine now, so I’ve been finding projects I can do while resting.

The plain box below was for sale for $14.95.

I used paint and objects I found around the house.

The Three Norns, Dec. 8 in Chatham

norns sign 11:13

Tomorrow, this sign will hang in a store window at 12 Main Street in Chatham, NY. My two daughters and I will be selling our handmade goods, from 11 am to 4 pm. I have been able to work slowly on some small items for the sale.

Below are some more tiny worlds, small living terrariums, which will be for sale. I also will show some woolen goods, ornaments, and some jewelry. Stop by if you are in Chatham!

New Camera

During last winter, I took photos of a snowy, ice-lantern-lit labyrinth in 9 degree F weather with my digital camera. The camera never recovered from that experience. I had been limping along with it since then, so imagine my delight when I found a new ELPH camera under the tree!

Here are a couple of ornament photos taken with the new camera.

Homemade for the Holidays

Until yesterday’s injury to my finger, I had been working on holiday gifts for my family,
and possibly for yours!

BTW, my hand is feeling better today.
