LIGHT on the shortest day !

December, the year,
is rolling slowly to its end.
Things have quieted down
after the rush of felting and preparing
for the (not very successful) market.

All the stand holders managed to get there ...
then the snow really started :
so hardly any visitors !
More than 5 cm snow
and Holland comes to a standstill !
(towards the end of the afternoon
it started raining, so we came home safely !)

It's been a long time since I did some drawing,
so for this Solstice day
I took out my Inktense pencils
and some special pens,
and made a Solstice / Light / Feast drawing
(instead of a stitched piece)

A very
Solstice, Light Feast, Jul, Chanukah, Christmas
to ALL my friends in Blog-land
all over the world :
may you spend many joyful hours together with your loved ones !

And to remember that failed market-Sunday
almost two weeks ago, some pictures ...

    1. Thanks Sara ! Snow is beautiful, but here no one is used to snow : no snow tires, so hardly anyone on the road!

  6. Love the gnomes! Sorry to hear that the market wasn't successful due to the snow. Here in South Carolina, we have the same problem. It rarely snows but when it does, everything closes!

  7. I hope you will continue to create such good articles.,
