I am not Jewish but I do have a great deal of respect & curiosity about the religion.
Over the years I've been commissioned to create several Hanukkah pieces. This year I bought my first menorah as an opportunity to discuss the Jewish religion with my son Luca. As a child I had wished for a better understanding of other religions. I've checked out a couple children's books about the holiday to read as bedtime stories. So tonight at sundown we'll light our first candle.
Today I'm showing some sections of my Woodland tree skirt. This is made of felt & a variety of other fabric. To finish off the rustic, woodland look I found some wooden buttons & stained a couple in some earthy shades. I love to cut & sew & enjoyed working on this. Next step, some woodland ornaments... for next year maybe!

How do you do?

That's another fun part- picking the palette of fabric & special touches!
