3000 Things... complete

SJigsawComplete.jpg

Victory is ours - Christmas project completed.
What to do now? Why - on to Mike Wilks letter "A" of course...

Our Christmas project - a Waddingtons 3000 piece jigsaw purchased long ago for just such a time as this.
Mike Wilks stunningly detailed picture "Sleepy Shopkeeper" featuring all things starting with the letter "S". [Including his own signature "Wike Milks" - - no? - a spoonerism].

A rather strange Christmas Day

ChristmasDinner2020.jpg

But we kept up the traditions nonetheless... paper hats were donned after the cracker pulling...

[I notice I have this in the category "days out" but after this year's experiences I rather think "Days In" would be more apt.]

Kaffe Lecture

Kaffe2020FoQ.jpg

Today I attended a Kaffe web lecture sponsored by the Cotton Patch - part of the remote delivery offerings "Beyond the Festival of Quilts".
I thought he was terrific, covering many of his design interests, (quilting, knitting, needlepoint, pottery, mosaic) exhibited through commissions, his own house, his collections from around the world - and perhaps more surprisingly: jigsaws.
Many thanks to him, and to the Cotton Patch for supporting this endeavour.
