Are you planning a "daily project" for 2014? Here's what Cecile Trentini did -
See it close up here, with some of her other work.

"Most unconventional xmas greeting" award goes to ... Choi&Lager gallery, Cologne, whose email included this pic by Rose Wylie -

...and now I'm going to try to slow down on blogging a bit - there is festive food to be bought and prepared, and once the family gathering is over, the annual jigsaw puzzle to do, and wine and other good things to be consumed. Books to be read, perhaps? I might even get out some knitting ...

"Peace on earth and goodwill to all." (If only...)

Tried to get to Helen's online workshop info -- keep getting pages that weren't available or pages with no cost or registration info. And I even googled her. Could you send me a link that works? Thanks margaret! Happy Christmas!
