The Twelfth Night

My daughter sent a yarn bowl for my birthday,
 made by an local artist in her city.
I have it in the living room by the windows.
Just seeing it brings me much delight.

It is time for me to work on my Chinese Knotting.
I brought up my knot board and my cords.
Hopefully this January I will learn how to do one of the basic knots.

We celebrate Luna New Year in January. Our house is decorated with an nod towards Asian influence.
My husband and I were born in the year of the rain dragon. We have dragons hanging here and there.

It is very fun to bring out the January things.

I am aware of the placement of our decorations.
I practice less is more.

After my Victorian Christmas
January is refreshing.

Painted fans and silk embroidery  
help to set the mood.

2011 is the year of the Rabbit.
We have plans to attend an early Luna New Year
celebration at the art gallery.

I am listening to 
some of my favorite music.

It is Twelfth Night, 
Christmastide ends tomorrow
with the Epiphany.

I have many projects to do in 2011.

There are many days to celebrate.

I hope to be celebrating the Rabbit this Feb 3 too. It sounds like such a pleasant year. I like rabbits.
