Christmas is a quiet affair here at Crow's Foot Farm. No little ones to bake cookies with and wait expectantly for Santa to arrive. Christmas is always best when seen through the eyes of a child.
We don’t have a real tree this year. We used to have a dry sink into which we would stand our fresh cut tree, keeping it out of reach of our four male dogs. Now that dry sink has been replaced by an antique pie safe, which I love a lot. Times change and one must move along or get run over!
Our tree this year is a feather tree made by Patti Erickson, who also does beautiful chair caning. Her website is www.thisoldseat.com . She can also be found on Facebook. She’s a talented woman!
My Down to Earth2 round meditation mat is finished and it will be winging its way to Oregon after the New Year. It was a lot of fun to hook. Contact me about buying the pattern, so you can hook one, too.
My next two projects will be one super-secret rug for a group project and another one that I donated to an auction for the MSPCA animal shelter on Cape Cod. I will be hooking a rug depicting the winner’s two beautiful German Shorthair Pointers. Stay tuned as I share my process as I go along.
I hope your holiday season brings you peace, happiness and gratitude.
There’s a lot of beauty out there and in the Season of Light.
