Happy New Year


It hardly seems as though it's the end of the year with the rush and bustle of the holiday months still ringing in our ears. But there's the date - January 1st. 

Even though it's a precise measurement from a pretty arbitrary start point, the turning of the year is still something to celebrate - if for nothing else than the ritual and tradition of celebrating. 

So we turn our clocks and calendars and refresh our resolve. We recollect the past year and promise with all our intentions and hope to do better in the coming year.

The past couple of months I've been enjoying very much enjoying felting. The mini-hedgehog and its log were a present for C. The needle-felted owl was made as a gift for a cousin's new baby and the case is for myself. 

Sending you love and wishing you a better year to come than we had this past year. Although, for us, 2013 will be pretty hard to top!

  1. You write so beautifully. I love to hear your thoughts. I liked what you said about that precise and arbitrary moment that turns us from last year to a brand new year.

    I liked this, too. It is part of a poetic meditation that a friend sent me:
    "The new year always brings us what we want
    Simply by bringing us along"

    I guess I like the idea that the new year, or the universe, might have a better idea of what I want than I do. And might have a better plan to get there. So, here I am, ready to be brought along.

    Happy New Year!
