The Reason for the Season

Like Mama quilters everywhere, I'm basting underneath the Christmas tree late at night. And quilting while Sprite busily tangles spools of thread or during her blessed but all too short nap time. But stitch by stitch fabric becomes a quilt to cover my Grandma with love and maybe, just maybe, make her hated wheelchair a happier place.

Knitting in the Sun

Today was the sort of magical cool-but-sunny first of December day that makes Florida an incredible place to live. So, I sat in the sun and watched Sprite play while I knit. This linen scarf in my favorite feathers and fans pattern was originally intended as a Christmas gift. It doesn't look like it's going to make it, but it's several repeats longer tonight anyway. And my spirit is lighter.
