I had such a nice Christmas because I decided to stay home. I didn't let the allure of town and shopping and movie theatres and restaurants draw me away from my front door. While others dashed to town on busy roads, I stayed home and did weaving :)
On Christmas Day I burnt all the Advent candles down to nubbins.
Adam made a chiffon spice cake for dessert. Oh my -- lighter than air!
Each doggie got a bone. They were quiet on the back porch.
He calls it a clasped-weft method, and also shows how to do simple inclusions. He makes it look so easy, but I had to practice quite a few times before I mastered this technique.
It was a peaceful Christmas. Anna, Peter, and Julia were here, which was lovely, and we got to talk with Philip and Kara, who traveled to her folks in Illinois. It was a peaceful Christmas for me. Our church's Lessons and Carols Service was particularly lovely this year. After the hubbub of music and performance earlier in the month, it was so nice to be off work, done with commitments, and just be home. I hope your Christmas was wonderful too. Now I must click "publish" before I'm utterly distracted with more fun weaving videos on youtube!
