Speaking of house guests, my sister was here from Long Island for a few days and my son, Kurt, and his girl friend, Katie, were here from Portland, OR. It was great to have them here. I do see my sister fairly often, but I do wish she lived closer. She drove home yesterday. I see my son and his sweetie just a couple times a year. Portland is much too far away. I drove them to the train station today which they were taking into NYC to spend some time and then take another train to the airport.
Tomorrow (New Year's Eve) and Wednesday (New Year's Day) I have no commitments. I am going nowhere, which suits me just fine. I will spend the time taking down all my Christmas decorations and putting all those Santas away for a nice long nap.
Then I will be free to work in my studio. The first project in line will be to finish this jacket. Although I have no place special to wear it, I will enter it into the Woman's Club Arts and Crafts competition in February.

Now I have to add the collar, facings, sleeves and lining. Wish me luck! I'll show the results when finished.
