coming up for air

How was Christmas at your house?

Ours was wonderful, even if pictures, taken with a borrowed camera, were not. Please do not adjust your set. A Nikon D40 is on its way! (Thank you, Santy Claus!)

The only picture I got of Iris looking happy about her crown, as opposed to striking her strangely somber 19th-century-child-portrait pose, is terminally blurry, but here it is anyway:

Opening her crown prompted a change from pajamas to dress-up clothes. Here she is reading a new book in full fractured-fairy-tale regalia: gown, crown, and Athena's breastplate, complete with head of Medusa, a joint project of her father and me. (He gets most of the credit. The idea and design were all his. I just embroidered the details.)

He also made her a shield of Athena, boldly proving that the freezer-paper technique is perfectly suited to felt.

And now Christmas is over for another year. Actually, make that another three weeks. That's when my sisters-in-law are coming and my father-in-law is returning for a belated celebration with them.

Until then, a little breather and ringing in the new year, which – whether because of or in spite of a lot of changes around here, I'm not sure which – is going to be a great one. I just know it.
