Felt Sweetness

Little felt bears made for a two-year-old. Aren't they sweet? Easy pattern, except for the bitty pieces (oh, my eyes aren't what they used to be!). From this book:

Much more sweetness inside -- including the cutest kitties. Love this book.

Happy holidays to all! I wish you goodness and peace in the new year.

Corners of My Home

A new corner of my home. This is in the kitchen: an old pine chest of drawers just purchased at the consignment shop, immediately bedecked with some sewing stuff. The pipecleaner-button tree I made a few years back. . . . The short green tree is surrounded by red buttons; the green bobbins are a birthday gift (thanks, N!). The cones of white thread look like snow-covered trees to me. A new sewie corner. I love it.

Chai Days

Crazy-busy these days. To get through, I drink Chai tea. At least one a day.

Thanks to The Spice House, I can now make a decent, fast cup of chai at home. I use an Irish Breakfast Tea bag from Trader Joe's, a good scoop of the chai spices from The Spice House, a little warmed milk, a little honey, and an extra sprinkle of cinnamon. Mmmmmmm.
