Saturday Update

Last week I had a few moments to craft.  I was excited about that Vanna yarn that I was able to get on sale and couldn't wait to feel it across my fingers and hook.  I made 3 hats:  a wavy bucket hat with freeform crocheted pin and 2 berets (one small one in red, one large one in a dark, heathered gray).  I also started on the polka dotted scarf, which I haven't been able to get back to, but I will in due time.  I'll post the real deal pics when I'm finished with them and/or ready to list them in the shop

Yesterday, I was finally able to go to a Wal-Mart that hadn't gotten rid of their sewing/craft section.  Finally, I was able to get my hands on the fleece I've been longing for for weeks now.  You know I don't like multiple WIPs so it's important to me to finish them and move on.  Now with the fleece in hand, I can try the idea I've had in my head for a while and see if it'll work.  Then that project will be complete too. * Don't you love how I'm non-specific? *

Oooh, fleece!

I'm steadily getting ready for Thanksgiving Holidays too.  The A/C folks came by this morning to service the heating and cooling system.  I'm waiting on a man with a ladder to replace the bulbs on my flood lights.  I'm also waiting on the guy that's cutting the grass to come.  I love how he edges up the place.  He's very neat like that.  A friend is coming over to help me further prepare the house for the holidays - mopping, cleaning walls, vacuuming...  I think we'll even make pomander balls.  They smell soooo good!  My mom gave me some of her fall foliage for decorations.  I haven't put them out yet, but here's some of what is done on the dining room table.  The pine cones in the center smell like cinnamon.  Ummmm....

The table runner is really more red than this pic shows.   
Mom sent a place setting by also to see how it would look.  We're doing paper/plastic this year.  The setting is on a gold charger.

Well, that's about it for now.  I've got lots of work to do in so little time.

Until then,
Libby :-)

  1. It so nice to hear from you Libby. I was starting to wonder what you were up to.

    Can't wait to see the hats and scarf. The colors look great. Love the fleece. Can't wait to see what little idea has been hanging about in your head.

    I have to tell you that the paper/plastic idea is awesome! I'm all for "less work".

    Have a great rest of the weekend dear!

  2. I am glad you are blogging again, i miss reading your posts!

    You are busy getting everything prepared for Thanksgiving, that's kinda nice. Things are getting busy around here too, I got a grocery list going, and I have been making some Christmas presents for a few friends.

    I'm so glad I crochet, otherwise I don't think I'd be able to afford to give my friends any gifts, this way they will at least getting something made with love.

  3. You have been crocheting quietly in the dark, haven't you? And yes, you know we love when you just drop hints and don't tell us what's on your mind. ;-)

    Can't wait to see what are you preparing for T-holidays. The paper & plastic idea is great, it would save you a lot of washing later.
