I was busy decorating for Christmas today--a little early, but when a cold front moves through Southern New Mexico (it snowed a little!!), you start feeling Christmas-y.
While Visions of Sugarplums Danced in Our Heads
Haul out the Presents, Put Up the Tree...
Isn't this the best time of year?

I began by painting a wood block and wood ball black. I painted the head on the ball. I tried to capture Madeline's beautiful blue eyes and lovely hair. I collaged the front of the block with sky paper and words. (The quote is Madeline's favorite.) I then added some golden embellishments. The arms are a pencil and a paint brush since Madeline is an amazing artist. The legs are vintage door stoppers.

This is for a friend's new baby.
These two are a custom order for a set of twins (ordered from e-bay).
This is for a trade with another artist friend.
And this one is for my brand new niece!

Got the JOY blocks done and mailed this morning. I love commissions, but it's also so nice when they are done.
Here's my latest knitting project. A hat for my niece Haley. Got the pattern in Itty-Bitty Hats by Susan B. Anderson which I highly recommend for all knitters. The stuff in there is so cute!
Yarn Used: Bernat Cotton Tots Ombres (Very Berry)
Needle Size: US 11
