Winter Maker Night revisited

Winter maker night at the Anchorage museum was on November 27, 2015. It’s been over two months since the event. When the museum invited me as the featured artist  last September, I thought it was too good to be true. I’ve just started showing people my creations. After meeting with the coordinator, I finally felt “wow, that was going to happen for real!!!” She said I could show whatever I wanted to show. So I got a chance to show my daydreams.  I created winter forest table and autumn forest table and bit of holiday decorations. I made a log cabin on the winter forest. I wanted the visitors to feel like they were invited to my log cabin with holiday decorated fireplace. It was so much fun all the way from the beginning to the end. Several of my friends came to support me. I felt a lot of love that night. Thank you all for coming to the event. Thank you all those who couldn’t make it to the event but supported me from where you were. Special thanks to my dear friend Naomi. She came to my house twice before the event to help me out for the display. She showed up earlier for setting up and stayed late to packing up, and took all the lovely photos for me. I cannot thank her enough. And another special thanks to my husband who has tolerated well with yarn all over house for his love and support.

 

Meet Holgott the bird

I found very attractive birds in the painting my friends have in their living room.

This is the picture of the painting. I guess this was originally painted by a German child. These birds have names, Holgott and Mosam. I am not familiar with German folktale, but they are from a folktale.

I really like them, so I decided to make them!

This is Holgott the bird I made.

I haven’t started Mosam the bird yet, but someday, I would love to make him, too!
