 Three new baskets finished in October - top one was made from a painted gourd that I bought, middle one has seeds implanted in a plastic/acrylic base, and bottom one was made with walnut shell slices.

 Picture taken from front window. This black bear was scared away with a whistle but another one appeared two days later and was also scared of the whistle. The next morning I found the bird feeder gone and the pole it was on bent at a 45 degree angle. Bear retaliation???

                                       Needle felted with class with Mattie and made into a carrier for my pad.

Table runner - sewn with the help of rulers and then colored with ink tense pencils textile medium to blend colors.

Being creative

 Finished this pine needle basket. It is larger than the other ones I have done (9 ' x 10"). I got the base from Etsy and love the flower and seeds. 

Also I have been doing baking. The top one is Chocolate Babka - a heavy swirled bread that has a ganache inside. the bottom one is a Chocolate Yule log. I made a cream cheese filling and ganache for the top. Both are YUMMY!

Decorated for the holidays, haven't done it for a few years, so this year  decided to go for it!
