Some needlework
Enjoying, as always, the feel of needle, thread and soft cotton in my hand, I just made these two little somethings. I'm leaning heavily on English textile artist Janet Bolton's technique and example, I admit. There's something really satisfying in making these little pictures that are small enough to do in a couple of hours, and I've got a few more in mind before the attention wanders on to the next project. Some of them may find themselves in Christmas packages, too.

Very nice! Isn't it gratifying to start and finish projects. I like yours.

These are absolutely lovely. It does feel good to be able to make a little something -- a project that can be picked up and finished in a reasonable amount of time, and there's nothing like this season to bring on the needle and thread.
