Epiphany, and a little Show and Tell

advent epiphany

The Advent Fairy remembered the three wise men in the nick of time last night.
Thank goodness she did, for Son #3 made a beeline for the advent table this morning to check out the kings’ arrival.

***********************************

In other news, I finally found and unpacked the box containing my smalls, and in it was an assortment of hats, gloves and scarves, including this ...

... which will do nicely for Show and Tell something crafty.

I felted this scarf for myself last winter.
It was my first attempt at felting, and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the process was. Not to mention how satisfyingly quick.

The scarf is beautifully soft and oh so deliciously warm.

Son #3 took his modelling assignment very seriously.


(Happy Twelfth Day of Christmas to all)

We celebrate Ukrainian Christmas (Orthodox) tomorrow. Then the tree will come down and decorations will go away. I like extending the season in apeaceful, low-key way, and am glad I am not the only one to do so!
I love your creche.

Just to say hello and that I'm sorry I haven't left any comments recently and that I've been following the move closely and that it looks great and that I hope you all settle in well and happily. There - all done in a sentence.

Have a good weekend.

Oh, and Sunday is earmarked for making the Turkish Delight. Alice is still considering possible colours.

That is a gorgeous scarf...I'm teaching myself to knit and recently read an item about "felting" in one of my secondhand "how-to" books, I wondered what it was all about. Now that I see your lovely handiwork, I'll have to investigate further...

Have been lurking without time to post comments (that sounds so pathetic in print) but am glad you're getting through the horrible unpacking boxes stage. Love the river, looks a lot like the Richmond River where we lived in Casino for three years when the Pea Princess was a babe.
Good luck with the rest of it!

Just learnt to dry felt - not as satisfyingly quick but a really amazing process - from fleece to solid forms using nothing but a needle. Now I need to learn about wet felting...
