I’m a little late with this one, but here are some gifts I made for some special recipients this Christmas:

Pillows for cousins Thano and Luca (their mom’s favorite color is purple):

(this is Thano),

and a scarf for Dad-

modeled by the magnificent Aunt Betty (Thano and Luca’s mama).

Hardcore Hardcovering

My mom surprised her boyfriend by illustrating a story he wrote for his kids, and I think she should consider a new career (she did a great job!). I made covers for her and have some evidence of the process here.

Tuscarora Trail

Today I hiked a 10 mile loop on and around the Tuscarora trail in southern PA. The hike was mostly along the ridge line and there were great views on both sides. Temps were in the low 20’s but there was enough hill climbing and rock scrambling to keep us warm. I definitely recommend it for a day hike!
