keep on going

She likes her skarf very much, just the right colours.
This afternoon we had her party and later a lovely
dinner with children, friends and family.
She was wearing a wonderful jacket in those purply colours
(could not have chosen better !!)

This is the mandala I made last Wednesday.
We are working about "animals of power"
The Owl

And I started making the Christmas / New Year cards
for this year. Some years I just buy them, some years I make
them myself. Last year I used the stamps I made when I broke
my wrist in May (that was the only thing I could do instead of
sitting still for four weeks in a plaster bandage)
This time I wás thinking about felting but ......
I made another stamp.
(out of pencil-eraser : nice soft to cut,
and just the right size !!!)
Not finished, but I didn't have another block ... so I will buy that tomorrow
( when I'm off to the knitting group, for the last time this year )
