Santa Peg

My twin sister, Peggy, plays Santa to her two dogs, Ben (collie) and Samantha (Sheltie).  Just like kids all over the world, someone thinks the other's present is better...

Christmas Dove

Lovely pattern from the book 75 Birds, Butterflies & little beasts to knit and crochet



by Lesley Stanfield.  I think that the author calls it Dove but since it's nesting in my Christmas tree, I changed it.

Springerle 2011

This year I am trying the Springerle recipe from Martha Stewart.  Her recipe differs from the traditional in that she uses butter.  Most do not.  Here are a few that are drying.  I will bake them off after they rest overnight.

Flounce Scarf




Here's a preview of a Christmas present...  Since I don't have a model, I placed it around the vase which held my Anniversary flowers.  Eleven years on Dec. 2nd.
