All of a sudden it's December and we look forward to Christmas and New Year but we look back at what has happened over the last year. It has been a wonderful year with joys and challenges as life is wont to have! I hope you have had a good year and that your heart is content. I will continue to be open at my shoppe on Martin Grove Rd during December until the last week when I will be closed for family time. I am very grateful for the support and encouragement that I have received from so many of you! Thank you for taking the time to visit at the shop, to come to fiber events like The Knitters Frolic and Etobicoke School of the Arts Winter Craft Sale,or buying from my Etsy shop. I am grateful! It gives me a lot of joy to see your enjoyment of the yarns and products that I carry. I am most active on Instagram as far as social media goes and it has been wonderful to make new friends and contacts there.
The temperature varies a lot in my shop depending on the sun but I love the sun patches and how lovely the yarn looks in the light. These yarns are from Salt River Mills and are Suri alpaca. There are new Suri singles coming very soon and pattern ideas to try out.
Christmas is a time of reflection, remembering what is meaningful in our lives. It can get busy and it is not always a happy time for everyone. I have been participating in a advent draw, taking time each day to slow down, and draw or paint using set prompts. I am no artist but I have enjoyed this activity and it has brought focus for me on what brings me real joy. I hope that whatever your circumstances are that you will experience wonder, joy and peace. The Christmas Story is a story of joy for all people!
