Another traveling holiday

We are back from Seattle and it was a great trip. The weather was interesting, but not scary, the whole time. We made it to Williams about 1 am the first night. Jill and Earl had to work so we got a late start. The Ashland grade...not it's real name, was beautiful.

We got to our fav eating spot, Morninglory, for lunch and got to Portland about 6 to meet up with Roberta at her amazing Broadway Books bookstore, to drop off some paintings for the store.

Got to LE's about 10:30. She had decorated the house so cute and prepared our rooms with water and chocolates.

This is the Acorn room, also known as the guest bath.

Next day LE cooked lots of great food in her beautiful kitchen.

She had made us all stockings with one for "XWP". That is the baby's current name: Xena Warrior Princess.

Jill and I headed off to Kinokuniay Bookstore while LE napped and Earl and Jon played Wii sports all day.
And of course we had to go to Maxine's around the corner!
We watched movies on LE and Jon's new amazing screen, opened gifts and did a little journaling and art projects. Fun fun fun! pick a tag line for this one....

Another fun day at the ART CLINIC

Between the chit chat and cookie eating there was a needle felting project going on. Here is the results so far. Alice made a good model for Joel's granddaughter's revamped hat.

Fun at Maren's house

We had a beautiful day at Maren's Wed. We celebrated her, Colleen and Patti's birthdays.

Her house is something out of a magazine. Everywhere you look is something amazing. I love all her unusual succulents.
It was a very festive day that gave me my first holiday cheer feeling. Lots of gift giving and stories to catch up on along with lots of laughter.
Here is Mary in her new hat. I got to wear it for awhile.
Here is Penny in her new glasses and all polk a dot dressed to match.

Getting out the tree ornaments

Sometimes I don't even get into my massive collection of ornaments for Christmas, I just use what is around the house...which is more than I could use on 20 trees....But this year I took down, out of the garage rafters, one box. These are some of the treasures.

This one is new from sweet Teesha.

And this is my new favorite piece of jewelry....I think I'm turning Japanese....I really think so....

Here is another pic of part of my inchies from FiberFest. Marilyn did an amazing job and I love to take various ones out and arrange them from time to time.

This is my latest fun project.
...and this is my latest fabric ATC for a
swap...coming your way Betsey....

This is our latest class at the ART CLINIC...Barbara Carr taught us how to make wool on silk skarves. It was such a great class and we had so much fun.

And last in a winter funny for ya...
