Prior to my trip, I had purchased two skeins of yarn and a jumbo sized crochet hook.  The initial results were discouraging to say the least…out of practice, I suppose…and a little uninspired.  That is until Christmas day, when Reima presented me with a gloriously crocheted scarf of interesting pattern. (thanks Rei)

Delighted with my new gem, I was determined to replicate the intricate design.  You all know, I can’t follow a pattern to save my life, but after careful dissection, and hours of finger whittling work, I reign victorious!

Sadly, my yarn hails from a thicker variety, which may only be appropriate for two days out of the year in south Georgia.

on to ink…

Christmas is upon us….and while I’m a tad bit sad that my Southside Shellfish project is coming to an end, there’s a part of me that thoroughly enjoys juggling 5 projects in my studio at once.  The popular medium of choice seems to be pen & ink, but I also have a few pet portraits to knock out before the big day.  (If you would like to commission work for the Christmas Season, be sure to contact me as soon as possible to get on the list…) 

Check out this lovely log cabin in North Carolina…I’ll move to ink it soon, but I love the rustic quality of pencil on paper, smudge-marks and all, it just seems appropriate for this old home.
