WIP Weds: 1 Saturday till Christmas!

It’s been a rough couple of weeks, still very wobbly and trying to keep up. The guyz have been great. Got a bit done since last Wednesday, funny since I feel like all I’ve been doing is reading my new book. Well only a few days left, need to get back to work!

WIP Weds: Only 5 more presents to go!

Christmas fire

Sadly, this Wednesday finds me doubled over with back pain. I am stretched out on a heating pad and high on pain meds. I am supposed to go to Christmas lunch with the Craft group ladies today. If DH can take me in my wheelchair I may go otherwise I am stuck… Meanwhile my hero has photographed my efforts this week. He is always there when I need him! Thanks Sweetheart!

Watcha doin Weds: Snow!

It's hot!

Reporting first snow of the season! It’s cold out there. Curled up in front of my virtual DVD fireplace, knitting and listening to Flanders Recorder Quartet LIVE concert @ Seoul 2009

Winter bring it on!

My Mother gave me a fireplace for Christmas some years ago (on DVD) Low maintenance, no heat, but warmth...

Shoulder Shawl take 2

As some of you know, the original of this shawl was the result of an all night knitting marathon. In a fit of insanity, I ripped it out as the sun came up. trying to reconstruct design from photos.

Meanwhile in the Great White North, Jack has been up to mischief…

Jack decided to take a run in the snow. He dashed out the front door, didn’t wait to be picked up. Sat in the snow looking around, then dashed down the side of the house and squeezed under the fence. Meanwhile I headed downstairs through the house and opened the back door. He streaked in and gave me a look…
Why did you let me do that it’s cold out there!
He went to Cat jail to warm up.

Finished last week with the Church Bazaar.  Was well attended even though it was a cold and rainy day.

The Men's Group sold Jams and Jellies. Further down are the Craft tables, with a wide assortment of handmade sell items. The Tea room is to the left and the bake tables and General Store are on the opposite wall.
