Now It's November?

The busiest of months

Here we go:

- from today until Christmas, will be trying to plan the holiday meals. I will change them multiple times and probably decide on a menu two days prior to the day. 

- by the end of this month, I will have looked through each and every cookie cook book I own, which is many, to settle on which dozen or so i'm making this year

- before Dec. 15th, I will have boxed up the gifts I am sending to those who live afar, but until then, I'll be crocheting and sewing up a storm to get them all made

 - FYI, there will not be enough hours in the day to get it all done, but we'll put forth an honest and hearty effort to do so.

 A felted bag I made, my first effort in felting and tapestry crochet
 Two cheap felt throws crocheted together using the blanket stitched edge already on them. Neat!
 Oil painting I did. Another creative outlet of mine. Nice to finally have time to do it!

Day tripping! We love discovering new sites nearby and this one is about an hour away. Who knew we had a natural bridge right here in Middle Tennessee (mid-southern, actually)

This is a little bit of what I've been up to since the last posting.Right now I have a few projects on hooks, so to speak. One is a boucle infinity shawl. Another is a vest in autumn colors which I think I'll keep. Another is a round throw which will be donated to the prayer shawl ministry, which goes to veterans in the local VA hospital. I'm also working on a needlepoint Christmas scene which I hope to get done by Dec 1st. I'm also supposed to be doing a CAL which I have not even started yet. YIKES! 

So, I'd better quit killing time on here and get busy! But first, I'm taking my cup of coffee out onto the front porch and setting a while. Here I come, kitties! 

May God Bless you all and keep you until we "meet" again.
