The Calm Start of 2022


Our first holiday in the condo has been wonderful.  Every room has a lovely view.  We had a nice flurry of entertaining, both small and large groups.  One of the benefits of working on a big batch of purses is that I feel I can reward myself with starting a new project, something big.  Downstream by Yvonne Fuchs has been on my radar for over a year, and I'm making the large napping size.  I don't always follow patterns, and it's nice to know exactly what to cut and how much fabric is needed.  Since John is so totally engrossed with all things football and since we are snowed in (not really but it's just nice to imagine...one of my winter fantasies), my productivity is off the charts!  Working in the studio, alternating listening to books (just finished Lilac Girls, an atypical WWII read, very good) and music - it's my vision of heaven.  Here's to 2022 - its off to a great start!
