Christmas Winter Blizzard

   I love days where you look outside see snow drifts the a pure white sheen of snow. A day to create to let the creative juices flow as you look out the window to the quietness of the day time to reflect relax and bring up new images to create. Beautiful long ice cycles hanging form the roof tops, roof lines with large snow drifts leaning over the ledges, fences with snow topped peaks, oh.. the stillness and beauty of it all.
   I cant wait to get started on some new spring projects.  A fellow brought me some old linen's from his mother to re purpose and reuse these beautiful hand mades. I'm going to sit a while with a cup of warm coffee and then begin creating.
Have a wonderful Christmas and a New Year,

Cookies For Afganastan

One of my sons best buds and quitar player during high school went for his first tour to Afganastan. His mom called me last week and asked if I'd make my chewy ummmy chocolate chip cookies to send in his holiday package.  She said she has the recipie however they just dont turn out like mine do....?  So I made them up and put extra love in them so he will return safe to us, his family and his new wife Jen. Proud of you Nick!
When these boys were growing up it always seamed like they knew when I was making cookies as if they could smell them from far away. Sweet blessing to share home baked goodies and love with those who come to the house.... miss those days with kids running around I guess now it will be grandbabies.  Looking forward to those precious moments and the future they hold.
Bless some one today with homemade something from your heart a gift of cookies or visit a elderly neighbor or call a friend and let them know you are thinking of them today.
From a primitive heart

The Year of the Fox and the Bear

Created for a client who wanted a gift for her brother.  He lives in the mountains he had bears and foxes visit all summer long.  The bear is made of soft black fabric with a sweet heart and button eyes.  The Fox on  the pillow is hand stitched with needle felted raw wool for the tail and the ears.  I used a tribal print fabric for the backing.
