Birthday gifts 2016

I know it's not yet June 26th (my birthday!), but since I was at my parent's house last weekend I got my gifts from my family.  All exactly what I wanted :)

A small cd player (to put in my guest room) to play my Christmas music while I wrap :)
A Barry Manilow 'Best of'
2 dvds of Hunger Games
A book to learn to knit socks.... I want to try to make some... was one of my goals for 2017, we'll see if I make it!

Slowly working on Christmas 2017

I've decided that this year's ornament for friends will be crocheted snowflakes and then I use a fabric stiffener so they hold up better.
Still have a few more to do but they are fun to make.

2017 - 1st painting of the year

I decided to paint an abstract elephant.



I find it gives lots of colors to the mantel.  Now next time I have to buy a BIG canvas so it can be more impressive.

2 boot cuffs in 1 -2017

I made bootcuffs but with 2 colors ... that way I can either wear the red ones or the beige ones.



What do you think?
