Happy Holidays

I will have limited internet access until January 2, 2008. I hope every one stays safe and warm. Enjoy whatever holiday you celebrate, and even if Christmas isn't one of them, go ahead and have a great day on the 25th.

For Christmas, I will be at my parents house. I'm taking my 3 cats over to help celebrate. Mom and Dad lost their cat just before Thanksgiving, and they both have said they need a cat fix. We will exchange gifts, have a family traditional breakfast and dinner. Sports and home improvement channels will be watched. Christmas music will be listened too and naps taken. Books might get read, crafts will be worked and family and friends in other places will be remembered.

I hope you all have as restful a time, and whatever your family traditions, enjoy them.
Peace and Love to all

On not tatting

I have been burying myself in things other than crafting. Meaningless things like playing video games, meaningful things like reading books, and day to day things like avoiding doing the dishes, or doing the dishes. I am working on another motif for the challenge. I am about 1/2 way finished. I might have gotten further, but I chose the wrong movie to throw into the DVD player. The motif is one I have tried several times to tat. It should be easy, 1 shuttle + ball of thread, with only chains and rings. I did very well while watching the Anne Bolynn sequence of the old 1972 version of Six Wives of Henry VIII. Then I made the mistake of switching to Fellowship of the Ring. I haven't seen FotR as often as the Six Wives series and once again I was completely caught up in the visual feast. The tatting went back in it's bag and I curled up under a quilt, the cats curled up on me and I once again journeyed into middle earth.
