In The Mood

It's starting to look a little Christmasy around here.

That's December's handmade, very soon to be on it's way to Jane. Once it's mobile I'll show what it looks like full frontal, as it were.

Last week I received another ambermoggie creation in the post.

Her name is Bastet and she is the Egyptian guardian goddess of cats, also known to be a house guardian. She likes to spin negatives aspects into positives ones. Hmmm...I've been doing exactly the opposite of that lately, so I think she's going to be just the influence I need.

Here she is next to Coventina. I adore these little dolls. I've always liked faceless dolls, so easy-going and non-judgemental. I'm going to have to add some more of these little lovelies to my household, two is definitely not enough

I don't have much in the way of knitting to show you today, in fact, I've almost completely lost my will to knit lately. I always get to feeling just a tad overwhelmed before Christmas - I don't think I'm alone in that.

Here's a couple of shots of the dogs.

Gus doing his best imitation of a gargoyle from the top of the stairs,

and here's Whimsy, pretending to ignore him at the bottom of the stairs.

I LOVE Bastet. I may need to start filling my apartment with these dolls as well.

The next time you take a picture of Whimsy, please at least comb her face. kthnx.

typo in your ambermoggie link.

intriguing glimpse of the handmade ...what could it be?

What do you mean by when it's mobile?

By mobile, I mean that it would be on a plane and finding it's way there.

Which it is.

So I guess I need to post to the blog.
