a gift...

A sweet friend that pops into the shop where I work regularly surprised me with a gift.  Actually, I surprised myself when I saw 'one' of her tiny trees finished and exclamation of 'oh my, I love it, make me one!!' I never do that, couldn't believe I asked her that.... And then... she handed it to me!!  My angel pictured above lost her magic wand ages ago...Christina's beautiful little tree was the perfect replacement.
She loves to work up these beautiful little designs in very fine threads...this one uses one ply of a hand painted wool.  Just precious.  What a special gift.  Thank you Christina.

Happy New Year!

My blog has become sadly neglected this year.  Can you have too much yoga in your life?  No way!  Yesterday I was a part of the '108' celebration to bring in the new year.  I'm not sure how many yogi/yoginnis were packed into the studio at Yoga Yoga here in Austin but it was mat to mat.  Listening to that many people breath as one was amazing.  I didn't let myself think about what part of my body was going to hurt today, I just kept going and Ommm! I did all 108....have to be totally honest here...there was a very quick bathroom break where I missed three but...
I did make them up!  
So to all of you, here's to a healthy 2012
