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? *
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....
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.
