Early Christmas Presents

I have gone to a few parties and so I have gotten a few wonderful gifts. One, from Dawn is still unwrapped under my tree. Another was opened at our quilting Christmas party, oil paint sticks and a book. The other day Marta called and asked if she could stop by with my present. She came with a wrapped gift, quite a surprise for Marta, our beloved scrooge. Inside the box was a pair of hand knitted socks! They are so wonderfully colored and warm. I have been wearing them everyday to keep my feet warm during our cold spell. The fire was on, a good Christmas movie was playing, I had my warm PJ's on and my new socks. As I layed on the couch I sketched them and then painted. There is somethings so special when someone takes the time and cares enough to give you something that they have made! Thanks Marta!

I'm so glad you liked them!!! I have several pairs that I made myself over the years and I just love how they feel. Reminds me how much I love myself too! LOL!

Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to you Desiree. May the (painting) force be with you in 2009. The socks look great. I can sense the soft and warm you are feeling. Great cozy time for holidays.

Miss you,
