It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words,
so I will let the following images do most of the talking.
I am well, and hope that you are too!
We've been experiencing some crazy weather:
bitterly cold for a few days and then unseasonably warm
I don't know what to think of it,
so I'm sure the outdoor vegetation doesn't either.
We're in the midst of celebrations:
grandchildren's birthdays and the holidays.
It's a busy time.
I'm trying to find spare time to feed my inner soul with my art.
Below is a closeup shot of a scarf that I've just finished dyeing.
I love it!
It's a silk/cotton blend and took the colors beautifully.
here's another shot of it:
C and I were invited to attend Grandparents' Day at
What an honor!!
His class sang "You are my sunshine" on stage,
hence his sunshine hat.
There was a book fair that followed,
so we had fun exploring new books with him....
and of course we came home with a bundle!
I actually DID complete all 24 of the Advent Stockings
in time for December 1st!
....and I enjoyed it too!
I learned a lot and got to practice many things:
toe-up socks, afterthought heels, stranded color work, etc.
I'm working on several needle-felted bags,
and hope to complete a few this week.
Here's an example of what's happening:
I love the process...just need to find the time!
I completed the butterfly hat for Maggie's birthday -
just in time, as her party is this coming Saturday.
It's really cute, don't you think?
I cannot believe she will be two already!
Slow down, Maggie!!!
Speaking of knitting,
I also finished my Banana Leaf Shawl today.
It's about time, since I cast-on in August!
We enjoyed lunch at Souper Jenny in Decatur last Saturday.
This was framed and hanging on the wall.
It is wonderful:
remember: only one to a customer!
Thanks for stopping by!
Peace to you and yours!
