December TUSAL & Holiday Wishes

I can't believe I haven't posted for a month! I have been stitching a hardanger piece for my sister for Christmas as you can tell from all the white threads in my jar.

The other picture I have to share is I picked up my Celtic Garden by Chatelaine from In Stitches. Those ladies did a great job framing it.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and I will see you all next year.

One of the Greatest Sci-Fi Writers

Anne McCaffrey passed away earlier this week. She was one of the first women to breach the pre-dominately male field of science fiction. I've read the Pern series several times. One of my other favorites is the Crystal singer series. I had the luck to meet her at a convention in New York many years ago. She had on a blue velvet outfit that she described as "harper blue". Anyone who has read the dragonrider books know what this is. We have truly lost a gifted storyteller.
