As another year draws to a close, one begins to reflect on its passage ... the wisdom gained from experience, an inner indulgence of pride through accomplishments, the revolving door of gifted people that have somehow found their way into my life and the sense of community shared with others.

With the dawning of a new decade I hope to embark on fresh fields of learning, sharing time with fellow knitters, spinners, quilters and whimsical artists.

I look forward to 2010 and all the dynamic challenges it shall bring...

Blessings for a New Year. Your blog is lovely. Miss Maddie is adorable...her and Bella would be sweet friends.

That kitty cozy you are knitting looks so soft and pretty.

My son just moved back home and has a tabby cat named 'baby kitty'...she likes to keep Bella on her toes! They are friends.
