I began the free online course this week, December EnLIGHTenment, and have received so many positive responses that my heart is filled with gratitude for being able to do this.
I’ve been really busy with the December Scrapbook, and decorating.
The seasonal table, with snowflakes by Fiona, my granddaughter.
The first box of decorations to make it up from the basement. Those red boots were actually worn by my 35 year old when he was a littlin.
I made a run to the yarn shop for last minute knitting projects, plus some sock yarn for after the holidays!
My son sent me this photo of my mother’s creche, whose set up is now a tradition in his home.
I am happy to note that the aforementioned course is doing what it was intended to do, and that is, reminding me of the joy and magic of the season. I have lots to do, but I’m not frazzled a bit. Love that.
The all white quilt needed some repair before I could use it on the Seasonal table, (it will be snow). A cup of tea, and working in the sun on the studio floor.
More quilting-I love that green and brown fabric
All 5 hats are dome! No pompoms though, they are the last thing on my list of things. I love to do!
Next project-scarf for one of the kids in my life
And a few more pages for the Vision book
Creating a new course called December EnLIGHTenment, which is free as a holiday gift to students and friends. I am teaching what I need to learn and that is feeling the joy and magic of the season every single day. It’s going to be a sweet and delightful 24 day journey!!
And of course there’s the quilting
The knitting, (hat #5)
The Vision book
All surrounded by my heart rocks from the sea
and the full moon over the ocean
I worked a bit in my Vision book this week
Making art and writing are my two loves at the moment
i was thinking about the holidays, and sorting out stocking gifts
And I decided for certain to create a new online course for December, and it will be free ! It’s my gift to students and friends and it will ultimately be a gift to myself. Like with the December scrapbook I wrote about last week, I look forward to enjoying the light of the season even though it’s a very busy time. Twenty four days of magic, inspiration, and connection that will increase our joy and bring a true sense of peace during the holiday season. Leave a comment if you are interested in learning more, i’m writing up the description today!
There’s a lot going on here. Well, Christmas is approaching, but the vision book is growing too.
Beginning with a glass of wine and a snack, I worked a bit on the vision book. Will this be the hub and I in a few years?
Gathering photos, pictures and such. Some to be used now, some later.
This weekend at the beach house has been designated for basting the quilt for Christmas. Starting-
And finished! Now for the hand quilting.
I have a new project: a December scrapbook. Every year I try hard to enjoy the days leading up to Christmas, but there are always so many things going on that I know I miss things. This year I am planning to make a scrapbook with a page for each day. I’ll take a photo and jot something down about the day-total experience! I’m prepping the book now so there’s no excuse when Dec 1 rolls around.
This is going to be good!
Going to bed early so I can see the eclipse at sunrise.
I’ve started a Vision Book this week, and a group on FB for those who’d like to share and exchange with others making books.

Working on the studio floor….beautiful day

I can tell this will be life changing.
Surfers out this morning
Wicked low tide…..it’s high tide and you can still see Rye Ledge
My two favorite ‘cottages’
The Fuller estate
Ogden Nash once lived here
The perfect seaside home
Two sweet little churches
the sea soothes my soul.
