Festival of Lights


















The birds went to Saugerties Library
to celebrate the season with about 20+
other trees. It was a fun event. The trees
were on show for four hours while people
wandered Main St. checking out the cafes
and antique shops and book store.
Saugerties,  a fairly small rural community,
with a very proactive library does a fine job
of implementing family activities. The
birds enjoyed the praise and the festive
spirit of the season as did the Sassy one.

Let the Season Begin














Planted the amaryllis bulb to round out the Thanksgiving
party. Sent home flower pots and bulbs with the gang.
Now we can begin the fun. Sassy loves to watch the
plant grow. Every day there is an incremental change. I
t loves the sun as it streams through the kitchen window.
But then so do I.

Enjoy your pre-season rituals. Will keep  you the posted on the
progress of the Amaryllis bulbs as we go. We share and post
post photos. Champion each bulb.

The Woodstock Congregation Holiday Fair

















A fun Sunday sharing time with other vendors
in a festive mood. A good venue to the work on
the art of showing and telling as the saying goes.
A tip of the hat to the holiday season.

Thanksgiving Past













Turkey and gravy and family gathering. A fire in the fireplace,
Christmas music, stories told by the grand girls, memories
fostered.

We advance to the holiday season in good form.

Blessings on your season.

Shaker Mats














Election Day 2018.
Damp and rainy. A good day to
weave colorful Shaker styled mats
and pray the simplicity and creativity
of the Shaker life choices will re-emerge
in our time.

Ear warmer/Thinking Cap













Sassy knitted an ear warmer or maybe you could call it an
ear-warmer for # 1 granddaughter, now a college freshman.
The yarn is Plymouth cake worsted weight on a size 7 needle,
just plain old 2k,2p. The fun was mixing and matching the colors.

On the trail

















Sassy and Ms. Jennifer took to the Working Weaver's trail on
Saturday. Such fun! Learned a weaving tip or trick at every
stop. Delightful and generous weavers sharing their talent.
Amazing fiber arts! Thank you ladies and gentleman for
inviting us into your studios.
