ANOTHER HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU!
We celebrated New Year with a roast dinner, including red cabbage which is mysteriously re-available in the shops after its pre-Christmas absence. There were nine of us at the table and we followed Kodakina's stollen with two rounds of Consequences and two hands of Canasta, until people begged to be allowed to go home.
Perhaps you would like to see pictures of a handbag I made from my weaving. I gave it to my friend E for Christmas and she said she liked it. It is lined, as you see, and has some strong Vilene between the lining and the weaving for stability. It fits under the shoulder and does up with two leather- covered buttons. I was pretty pleased with it and have started making another.
I failed in my goal to finish my red and green Maria Collins linenweave but have high hopes that it will be finished before the day ends. Watch and judge if you will.
