So, without further ado, here is my 2007 year-end review (that I had planned on doing before the year ended.)
HAPPY HOLIDAYS, FROM ALLENA
Just about everyone at work put their family Christmas cards up on a bulletin board. A few were just of their dogs. This got me thinking about making a Christmas card. I got as far as this picture. I love it. Even though it may need this caption (think The Far Side).
"Allena realized that her Christmas Card may not increase her chances of finding love in 2008, but she knew she would be happy knitting, spinning and sewing anyway!"
This picture contains most of my highlights from 2007.
First, I need to pay tribute to the ornaments on my first fake tree. My grandmother Elizabeth did incredible needlepoint and embroidery. Every year she made Christmas ornaments. Now I have 25 beautiful handmade ornaments.
I cannot remember all of them, but "The Ballerina Pig" was always my favorite, probably because my mother hated it most of all. I was honored to receive the most hated pig - so thought it deserved the top spot.
My mother may HATE pigs, but she loves camels. She bought herself this little tree just for her camel ornaments.
The rest of 2007 ...... coming soon!
