And now let us welcome the new year...

...full of things that have never been.

                                                              - Rainer Maria Rilke

Should Old Acquaintance be forgot,
and never thought upon;
The flames of Love extinguished,
and fully past and gone:
Is thy sweet Heart now grown so cold,
that loving Breast of thine;
That thou canst never once reflect
On old long syne.

- Robert Burns, 1788

In traditions old and new, come, let us venture forth into a new year and see where the road goes, whom we meet along it's path and walk until a new year dawns.

In the tradition of Dollectable, FREE giveaways will happen tomorrow, Sunday, January 1, 2017 beginning at 9:00 AM (EST). Come, let us be together to welcome the New Year.

Scarlet Elfcup will be giving away a surprise package...filled with some of my favorite things...wool, cotton, alpaca, butterflies, and lovely Liberty of London. Contents of the package will be revealed to the winner of the drawing on Monday, January 2, 2017 and shipped on Tuesday, January 3, 2017.

Thank you to all who enter. Good luck to you! I am grateful for your continuing support of handmade natural fiber arts, Dollectable and Scarlet Elfcup. Sending you and your families the best of all things in 2017.
