Merry Christmas to all!

At last, we've turned the corner on the season:  the winter solstice, our longest night, and its fabulous lunar eclipse, have come and gone, and, in a very few days so will 2010.  I photographed and photomontaged this lunar eclipse with my baby boy about seven years ago, and had hoped to repeat the exercise this week, but was flummoxed by the weather.  I love this moment of the year - the world takes a breather and each day is a few minutes brighter than the last.

My sea and sand jacket is finished, and so is the Sandra Betzina Today's Fit V1036. I'm now working on yet another jacket: V7610.  I'll blog them, and review them.... sometime.  My sewing window is narrowing, and since next year I'll have six sewing-free months, it makes sense right now to focus more on my irrevocable deadline than on up-to-the-minute sharing.

In the spirit of the season, I'm sharing with you  my collection of kolędy, Polish carols, which are the most beautiful traditional Christmas tunes in the world. Us Canadians are lucky to hear them on our national radio station CBC every year.

My own collection is here:  https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0BwJND8H7q_E_ZTFjMGEzOWEtMWUyMC00Nzc0LTk4NzUtNWU5NDJjZGQyMGVj&hl=en

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!
