No snow, no go

On the left, the actual kennel, on the right, the size I was expecting when I began.
Firstly a warm welcome to any new readers who have foundthis blog over the Christmas break, particularly new readers who are readingthis via Kindle.  There was no art groupthis week, as many of us would have been too busy with family commitments, soinstead I finally completed the knitted dog kennel I’ve been making.  Regular readers will remember that this wasmuch bigger than expected and had taken me several weeks to make, often workinglate into the night and getting up early in the morning to make sure it wasdone.  There were over 36,000 individualstitches in it, plus the dogs and bowl (with bone).  I used several layers of cardboard toreinforce it, and embroidery wadding to pad it out with.  I think the 3 year old recipient was pleasedwith it, and I sincerely hope he will enjoy playing with it.

We have had rather milder weather than this time last year,with no snow whatsoever.  Although lastyear’s weather was more than a little inconvenient, it did at least give mesome inspiration for a Christmas card or two. My better half is interested in the theory that sun spots affect theweather, and at the moment, there is not much activity, but there is due to besome in late January/early February, so it will be interesting to see if anysnow falls then.  Watch this space.
I have spent the past few days surrounded by family, and thenearest we have got to any creativity was when one of them created this “Stonehenge”in cheese for a buffet yesterday.  If anyof you have seen the spoof film “Spinal Tap”, it reminds me of the miniature Stonehengethat the dwarves danced around to hilarious effect, after a misunderstandingwith the set designer as to the size of the monument.

I should have completed my tree of life painting by the nextupdate, and am considering doing a Tenby harbour or island scene for my next painting, asit was very picturesque.

For now, I hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas and wouldjust like to wish you all a Happy New Year in advance.
