A great gift

I think I've mentioned that my brother works in wood. He turns beautiful bowls, and he's given me several. Here's what he made for me for Christmas this year. Isn't it beautiful?

And extremely useful (once I figured out what it was!).

It's really nice when someone knows you so well, they know exactly what you'd like. And even better, when they make it for you themselves.

PS....It's a very fancy stitch ripper (for those who might not be familiar with them). I'm a big fan of stitch rippers. They give you a second chance at doing a good job.

Christmas finale

Finally, finally the weather cooperated, and people's sicknesses abated, so that we could get together to see Gizmo receive his Ugly Xmas Sweater!! As I stated before, everyone needs an Ugly Xmas Sweater. Gizmo loves his, and surprise! surprise! his owner doesn't mind it either. Gizmo's one handsome dude, no matter what he's wearing.

And Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a photo of Cassie. You'll notice she's not wearing a sweater.
