Time is just moving too fast and Christmas is looming. Have not started the cards but they are made. My cousin Ann posted a picture on Facebook, a gathering of the cards I have sent over the years. I am more than touched. She will be getting another tree this year.

I have been expanding my Puppet collection. At Jamie's suggestion I have used red and blue along with the peace symbol. These puppets are available - just ask.

I consider them finger puppets as you can manipulate them with a finger but they are about 10" in height. 5 are currently available. I intend to do Etsy - it is in my technology package for January. I love the making part.

And I am working on a quilt that is due by the end of the month, sooner would be better. It is for a 4 seasons invitational. Spring is done and Summer is the one on the drawing board. The gal is Violet, age 15 in 1930. She is the mother of my friend Linda. I loved the image and the quilt will be called - a summer parade. (when completed). All decisions on this quilt are subject to change

We finally made it to the Muckenthaller Cultural Arts Center to see the Contemporary Quilts show. I had been told my quilt - Peace In The Valley was well placed. I really did not realize it was on the show entrance. Tom took the photo to document the event. It is a beautiful show, nicely hung. I have 2 pieces in the show and am thrilled to be in such good company.

And - one of my favorite pictures from the Portland trip. Brian makes butter dishes and will be participating in the Crafty Wonderland craft show next weekend. Info to follow. This picture is of the raw goods, cast and waiting in the "wet" box to be made into interesting butter dishes and the occasional cup. I find it fascinating how artisans actually do the process of what they do. And I thought those swans were well placed.
