First of all I want to wish you all a Happy New Year. May the year ahead bring you all the best from life! I was very busy this holiday season with work in the studio and outside the studio. Things are finally getting a little less hectic. I look forward to catching up with my favorite blogs and relaxing on a beach chair. The beach chair might have to wait as it's quite cold here in St. Augustine, Florida right now. Yesterday we had to bring all our outdoor potted plants indoors as temps dipped to below freezing. Today I stayed warm indoors and finished up a batch of new bags made with handwoven ikat. They are now available in the shop . Anni also stayed indoors. Even with her fur coat she thought it was a bit too cold for lounging on the balcony. But she still has her favorite grass plant to chew on that is now indoors so she is happy.
