The lead up to the holidays were a blur of late nights in the studio, shows on the weekends and last minute gift knitting. As usual my heart was bigger than time allowed and many presents were unfinished at Christmas. I gave up the ghost early and just shrugged it off knowing full well they could be finished on our post holiday vacation. On the 26 th the Mister, the cat and the dog, and I piled into the car and headed up north. We spent a blissful week in a wonderful cabin. I read, knit and took naps. Gluttonous. I also did a fair bit of snowshoeing on the lake. I finished four of the unfinished projects. It was lovely.
