"B" you're so beautiful, "C" you're a cutie full of charms... This is my favorite alphabet song of all time. I've been thinking a lot about what would be representative of me beginning with the letter A. It was really hard. I've got lots of ideas for other letters, but A didn't come to me quickly. I finally decided on two of my favorite books. A is for Ahab's Wife and Animal Dreams. Both of these books really affected me and I've read them multiple times. After reading Ahab's Wife I was determined to make it to Nantucket Island and we did make it there last September. Barbara Kingsolver is one of my favorite authors, so any book by her is a must read.
Scrabble fits quite nicely in his stocking as you see here. I'll be duplicate stitching the bones and paw prints and I may end up felting it. I need to try felting a swatch since I don't know if the Lamb's Pride oatmeal will felt, but I just might do it since the stocking is so big.
Lastly, I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year! I have many plans for 2006 including lots of travel, finishing some WIP's and starting new projects. This might even be the year I learn to spin. We'll see!
