If you read Wednesday's post, you may be glad to know that I survived Thursday night's frigid weather with my reputation for accurate weather forecasting intact, and my inability to sing still unproven. The cold and wind arrived on cue, as did a nice group of folks from one of the local church choirs to sing the carols. Whew! Santa wouldn't let me sit on his lap ( I think this might have had something to do with Mrs. Claus sitting next to him), but he did offer to trade me hats. Sorry, Big Guy, nobody gets the drover.
It's been another week packed with a wide range of projects. I had all three Art Girls on Monday. Faith and Kadence are both working on inventing their own board games, and Jensen (age seven) has absolutely mastered the sewing machine. She's been practicing straight seams so she can get good enough to sew a stuffed tiger. I think she's about ready.
Tiger seems to be one of the themes this week. I transformed a plain pine armoire for clients Sarah and Randy. Designing the knobs, I knew Sarah would love the animal patterned details, along with the sparkle. What I didn't expect was to arrive home to this email from Randy: "Wow! OH WOW!!! THE KNOBS ARE SO COOL!!!" Sarah, can we clone this guy?
