WIP Wed: Happy Halloween!

Hello everyone! Happy Halloween

Where more pumpkins come from!

I hope everyone out there that had a brush with “Sandy” is ok. We had 87km winds and a lot of rain here along the north shore of Lake Ontario in Canada. The boys put everything that might fly in the garage. Lucky we have a new roof so we were warm and dry. Very short lights out. Some trees came down and some people had basement flooding. Unfortunately, a women was hit and killed by a large glass sign that blew down in the wind in Toronto. We are still very wet around here… liquid sunshine till friday.

The Bazaar on saturday was a great success, in spite of the cold and rain. The hot lunch went over very well. Business was steady all day. (sorry I was too busy to take pictures) Everyone did a great job, and it was nice to see so many people who braved the wet weather.

I was very pleased with the response to my FO Friday post, about Contemplation on the “To do List”. I have made a big change in my gift giving. A few will get a larger handmade gift every year, others will get a small handmade gift, yet others will get one once in a while, and more than a few will get something special via retail. This relieves the pressure and allows me to enjoy the creative process and allocate my time more effectively.

I have been working away on my Drop stitch Scarf

Just about done, maybe tomorrow. The marker in the middle shows progress today.

Have to block the Oaklet shawl. Hope to have it for friday.

This weeks Book: Spirit Bound by Christine Feehan

Second in the Sea Haven novels, so far so good. The premise is that a group of women who are elementals, each has an affinity to some element. I liked the last one “Water bound”. hoping this one will be as good.
