Gifts from India



Catherine has traveled to India several times this past year in connection with her work at Unitus . She brought back these very well made shirts and a very pretty embroidered purse for me. The purse has several great examples of the shisha stitch around the little decorative mirrors. You can see a closer view of the stitching on my Flickr or by clicking on this photo.

Project Central Report

Before we left for Rio Rancho, I finished a couple of sweaters: one for David and one for Catherine. Now all that's left (for now) is Sophia's Santa Suit, the one that almost had 3 sleeves.

This is Catherine's sweater that's made with Noro Silk Garden yarn. Every sweater will look a bit different, depending on the colorway and starting point on the skeins.

Here's David's "puppy" sweater as Chloe calls it.

Back from Rio Rancho, New Mexico

It's been a while since I last posted, but we just returned from visiting my stepmother in New Mexico and our good friend Nancy in Colorado. This is a picture of Nancy's wildlife! The buck was lounging very comfortably under a tree just outside Nancy's dining room window until Dick started taking his picture. Isn't he regal? It looks like he's resting up for Santa's holiday trip!
