My Inner Martha

Not much knitting progress around these parts in the last few weeks. I'm going to take liberties with the blog and show craftiness of another sort:


There might be more knitting progress to show if I didn't spend my time obsessively hand painting teensy gingerbread stars for teacher gifts. (And yes, that is another crocheted bookmark. Who wants to know?)

Happy Solstice to all!!

Our view, taken earlier this week. There isn't much to see today as the clouds are hanging low and even in the middle of our 6 hours and 21 minutes of daylight, there was almost no light.

Embrace your inner Martha! Those cookies are gorgeous. As is the view. (And the bookmarks, but that goes without saying.:)

Lucky teachers. Sometimes you just have to go Martha, if you've got the skills! Those little cookies are beautiful.

Happy Solstice to you, too! Beautiful cookies...and once again your view takes my breath away! I could be happy in a place like that. Hope you are well!

Although I have no special interest in astronomy, I keep an eye on the APOD blog because it often has wonderful photographs. I thought you might like to see this one http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap071119.html If it weren't for reading your blog, I wouldn't have known where this was, but when I saw it, I thought, 'That's where Kathy lives!' Happy holidays, and I look forward to seeing more of your photographs, and your knitting, in the new year.

Love the cookies and the view!

Our shortest day was 4 hours and 16 minutes in Unalakleet.

Wishing you all the best for 2008!
