It's a goal for the new year....along with learning to spin novelty yarn. So far this holiday I've made about half a dozen scarves using a collection of handspun from Denton, TX, days, and a variety of other textured yarns. I use fabric stabilizer to hold it all together while it's stitched, then wash out the stabilizer....pretty fun and pretty immediate!
Our kitchen smells heavenly, of paperwhite narcissus, spices, and tangerines.....the smells of Christmas! I did some direct painting of paperwhites and the tangerines, then went back with pencil to try to define the shapes a little more. Fun stuff!
