Taking care of me this week! Treated myself to a facial, a massage, lots of tennis (maybe too much!), a new Zumba Gold class (I have lost all my ability to dance!), and a haircut scheduled for Monday! I've booked a visit to my bro and SIL in AZ for a few days in February and looking into another to FL. The weather continues to be unseasonably cold here, too reminiscent of RI, but we are adjusting and planning small reprieves.
I'm also taking a small break from fiber arts - to regroup and consider designs for Spring. The most recent creation really represents the barrenness of winter. I've called it Birch Bark, but I think Snowy Owl might be a better moniker.

This is a design in my "Bernadetta" line - with a story! My friend, Bernie (aka Bernadette), fell in love with the very first one I made in this style. It was a special creation for ME to wear at the opening reception of my first-ever fiber show. I can't even find a photo of it at the moment! But I LOVED wearing it, and it was symbolically so special to me. She wanted it! I declined!
The very next day, her husband called me at home. He really wanted to buy it for her for Valentine's Day. So.....I reluctantly sold it to him (at a rather high price!) From that time on, it became the Bernadetta Scarf. You can see many more of them here.
It's still a popular design. In fact, I recently completed a custom one for Julie (well, her mom who wanted to give it as a Christmas gift!)

SHE LOVED IT!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
TIME TO TAKE CARE OF YOU!!
