What a week gone already...........


Tuesday a week ago we met at Marilyn's for our afternoon of handwork and companionship......

Rebekah was with us that day.........



Marilyn and Donna......  Marilyn is working on a quilt and Donna is knitting a scarf....





I happily finished four scarves....  two for Donna and two for Lu.........  Now to get Lu's in the mail.....



Four more angels are ready to assemble.........  I have put that project aside till after the holidays have passed......  Just not enough time in the day to finish all I have begun........


At long last I finished another pair of socks....  These are for Jean Mello......  Slight problem with them  as you can see.........  Who knew that the factory had wound the balls differently............  They will still be warm......


The quilt for the guild is on the table being basted..........  Think I can get it quilted and bound before the guild arrives?


And two pies are ready to be delivered.....  Two more in the oven......


The laundry is done, the list is made and Rebekah is coming over to join me in more cooking........

The decorating theme this year is "Less is More".......

I will finish what I can and ignore the rest.........  Planning to enjoy this holiday............

A bit of re-arranging


I finally arranged the furniture in the master bedroom.....  This chest of drawers belongs to my brother but I have it for now.... 



This desk I borrowed from Rebekah.......  Seems perfect for that wall.


A chair from the living room now lives in the bedroom...... 



A place to put the frame that has the Nativity on it........  Wouldn't I love to finish it next year....


And the Grandmothers Flower Garden on the  bed......  I also need to finish quilting it........  Again, maybe next year.



Looks rather nice I think.....



Oh and last the flower arrangement I found at Michael's....  It is perfect with the topper I made and it was 70% off...........

Another thing or two.....


Finally finished Rebekah's flamingo.........  This was a pattern that I had purchased on the Shop Hop and I am pleased to say that it is finished..........


If I leave a tissue where Wade Hamilton can find it he likes to tear it into pieces.......  I think he believed that if he walked away from the mess he made no one would realize it was him........  He was WRONG...


Found this on my last trip to Happy's..........  Just the perfect decoration.....



Georginqa bought a quilt kit.......  She thought it was already cut out........  Since her arm was giving her problems I cut it out for her......  She will have to assemble it.............

Catching Up

I was surprised that I had so many pictures I had not posted......... Today I will start posting a few each day till I get up to date...........

We had Marilyn over for dinner one night.....  That was the WORST lasagna I have ever made....... The good company made up for the lousy lasagna...............


Finished eleven scarves for Elsie..............


Andrew came over on Halloween..........  It was so good to have them stop by..........  They even went to a few of the neighbors.........
Tomorrow I will add a bit more........
