This year’s Christmas card was inspired by a  Fra Angelico painting now in the Detroit Institute of Art which can be seen here.

    That’s a great success. But then Fra Angelico gives you something to work with, doesn’t he, lovely details and drapes…

    And a Happy and holy Christmas to you and yours!

      Yes, Rachel. Now I must work on getting the mouth less voluptuous and more angelic.

    A very happy Christmas Day, Mary. Thank you for sharing your superb creativity across many spheres which I’m certain gives so much pleasure throughout the year to many of your followers.

    I’ve started another pair of socks for Terry in one of Kaffe Fassett’s lovely self-striping yarns so no worries about sewing in those ends!

    I am so impressed by the Angel Gabriel that I intend to start my embroidery next year. I abandoned it for knitting but I find embroidery more soothing.
    Hope you and your family have a wonderful 2016! Best Wishes, Jane

      As you may have gathered I’ve come to knitting late on and I have to say I now love both. although knitting now seems to suit winter evenings more as I feel I embroider best in daylight. So, with the days starting to get longer, I would say now is a good time to pick up your embroidery needle. Happy sewing and living for 2016, Jane.
