A Sea of Pink Hats

The lovely Ms. Grace models a pink hat knitted by her mother.
Sassy, Jenn, and Grace are all committed to knitting pink
hats for the Women's March on Washington to be held on
the day after inauguration. The goal is 1.7 million hats. We are
late to the party. So, we are sending our hats with a marcher
leaving from Ct.

 Sassy is thrilled for all three generations to knit in common
cause to be part of an effort to promote fairness and respect
for women.

Silk on Silk

A Noro silk warp and weft woven at 8 ends per inch  was a delight.  The color pallet worked its own charm. With a three yard warp only needs to be twisted into a Mobius

Warping 2017

The warp is Noro silk. It  made the journey from Japan
via Ms. Jennifer. The lovely shades of purple, green,
and gold inspire Sassy and hopefully will spark yards
of colorful fabric and unbounded creativity in the new year.

Christmas Greetings

A sunny Christmas Sunday in New York.
We wait for the Cardinal to appear and
the family to join us in a feast.

We send you our blessing. May the little bell toll
peace on earth and joy in your heart.

Winter Solstice

Longest night, shortest day seemed to be the time to light the tree and send out our Christmas blessing. The little ceramic tree belonged to my mother. It was her table tree for all the years of her widowhood... a gift from a good friend.

The lights always remind one of candles, a way to light the way to peace and good will toward men.

So, on December 21, 2016 Sassy will follow the wisdom,
of the Irish author/poet John O'Donohue and bless you each
and everyone.

The firstborn grandson graduated from college yesterday.
The photo op is a photo of Sean Ryan Burns opening the box
handcrafted by his grandfather. May the box be filled with treasures
and a life filled with joy.
