I've been busily crafting, preparing little gifts for my great-grand-kids and other kids and friends, taking advantage of the time the P/C was unavailable. I'm also relieved to realize that no photo in my blog got lost. Blogger took care of that..
A few of the items you'll see in the photos below have already been wrapped and presented but many await the arrival of my granddaughters and their family who live abroad.
The strollers and teddies are for the little girls and their teenaged sisters.
The dogs and cats are for the boys and/or their girl friends. Pipe cleaners are wonderful to work with. I had to order the light colored ones. I ordered beige and received these. This is what happens when your order online. At least you are safe with white or black.
Flower duck pots for anyone who likes and wants them. (more than half are already gone. I'll have to make more.)
This if how the ducks look before sanding and make-up. These are made from DAS.
We are in the midst of several holidays, Last week was the holiest day in the Jewish faith. Yom Kippur, (Day of Atonement.) Religious people fast on this day, pray in synagogues and don't drive or do any manual work, including cooking, lighting fire. They don't smoke because this require lighting a fire.. Except for police cars and ambulances the roads are empty all over the country. A very solemn day indeed. I'm relieved it has passed without incidents.
Today is the second day of the feast of Sukkot (Feast if Tabernacles.) This one is a happy feast that lasts 8 days but the 6 days in between the first and the eighth are shorter than regular working days. Schools and many official institutes are closed all the 8 days.
