This was a really serious craft night. Last minute, all business. I woke up Friday morning and realized x-mas was coming up soon! And I had nothing to give. With all my attention focussed on Bello, the month has flown by! This gathering was about getting some shit done. And strangely enough only women showed up (plus Drew) which meant not only focused making-of-things but lively conversation and popcorn eating. I made a beautiful little Tree of Life for Bello out of a holly branch from the alley. I pruned and painted it to look like a tree and then added dried flowers and painted seed pods that Bello and I have collected on our walks. Others knitted and sewed.
