Just in the (St.) Nick of Time

After making the small oothecal bede designed by Rachel Nelson-Smith, I was determined to tackle the large version.

I thought it might be a possible Christmas ornament, depending on how big it turned out to be. WhooHoo! Add a bit of embellishment to the one end, insert a knotted ribbon into the other and voila-it makes a perfect ornament!

I finished it just in time to be gifted it to my co-worker (and friend) Shannon. She smiled :)
I just wanted to take a moment here to wish everyone and your loved ones the merriest of holidays.
Hug more, eat too many cookies, sing your carols for everyone to hear (my daughters especially love this one -- not), and reflect upon all the good in the past year.
I'm very blessed with love and health in my life and I wish the same for all of you--priceless gifts indeed.
