i am up when it is still night again. i don't mind it really. i love the silence and the sense that i have a couple of hours to think before the real business of the day begins. edgar seems to need me most often at around 4.30 a.m. and once i'm up, i might as well make it my starting off point. today my mind is full of christmas things. thinking i might suggest that we host instead of my parents this year, because it will be easier on edgar, and ultimately on us. and there are presents to get wrapped. and still plenty of gifts to decide on. although we are pulling back and having a christmas that is over the top in love, but with just a sprinkling of presents. books, and locally made gifts are what we're giving this year. an anxiety free holiday is the goal. so far, it's a success.
the studio is still abuzz. but there is alot going on, so i'm not there exclusively. however, if you were hoping to find a gift among our rooms, please contact me.....when i'm not there, i'm usually just next door and ready to run across the yard and help find the perfect gift. there are still several crib and lap sized quilts and a few full/queen sized ones as well. as well as wonderful hand made jewelry and vintage books. and stocking stuffers too.
