Christmas makings

I have been making some non-bear things and these are two of them! I've put them up on my etsy shop.......

and my website

Lili, our grand daughter, came the other day to work on her Christmas presents... it was one of those "dragonfly" days where her attention span was pretty short but we had fun! She will be coming back to add bows. I'd put up pictures but then the future recipients would know what she's making!

I did work on some bear things while we were off to Atlanta for Thanksgiving and as soon as I finish them I will be putting them up too! I couldn't take all the "bear making necessities" along with us which means finishing them up NOW!

We visited the Atlanta Aquarium ! It was fantastic... huge tanks with 1.5 feet of glass between you and monstrous fish!

On our way home we stopped in Tennessee at my brother-in-law's .... he has an rv park/trout farm in Allons. Priscilla and I took a trip to the Appalachian Center for Craft ( part of Tenn. Tech University) which sits atop a ridge in the middle of a TVA Lake formed from the Caney River. The views are spectacular as are the works for sale in the Center's galleries. They also offer wonderful classes and I am quite tempted!
On the way back to the trout farm/rv park Priscilla and I stopped at a local winery.... very small with NY-style grape varieties and the southern Muscadines. He, the vintner, actually produces a "champagne" and planned a champagne tasting later in the month. The winery is in Livingston, Tn.
