Christmas Gift... already given

I've been hiding in Michigan for three days now. No, I won't tell you where; you cannot find me :) and I am thoroughly enjoying the peace and quiet here. The weather, unfortunately, is very similar to Seattle and currently it is rainy and dreary outside, though colder than it would be if I were home.

This place, with it's red walls and furry creatures, caries a soft serenity with it, enveloping me and coaxing a smile to my face, a happy curving line. I have finished my first Christmas gift and given it to a good friend of mine. As promised, I've included photos. The gift is a sketch book for an artist with a quilted cover and the first few pages completed for her. The lines of perspective were a real bear and as you can tell, I didn't quite get them right (they are bowing a bit) but this was my third try on getting them as accurate as possible. There are green buttons on the plant. And of course, featured in the center of our piece for today are the great, snow covered, curves of The Mountain (Seattlites are well aware of which mountain that would be). The dress is embelmatic of my friend and of course the hats are kinda me... I love hats. I used to wear one every single day. :). I'll post a few detailed pictures of this later.
Hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving.....
