Long time no see!

Well hello!  Since last we talked it has sure gotten cold!  Right now just before five it is only 26 degrees.  But I like the cold!  We had sleet Saturday evening and a skiff of snow yesterday.


Jack finished up his rooster towel and it will be going off to its home soon.  Came out pretty I think.
I of course am still crocheting.  I am on the home stretch on a shawl and I had a little fun making a small heart and a little dishmop.


The other night, Sylvia Joy kept tapping Jack's shoulder.  So sweet!  She loves him even though she slaps him at times!

And she got her silly on!
And thought she was pretty funny stealing jack's spot on the couch!  He was lieing down to ease his legs and when he sat up for a bit, zoom!!!!!
Me, sleepy?
Thanks for visiting.  Blessings and huggles.

Popping in!

Well, with Jack's wolf done, he is now working on some rooster towels.
I am still working on angels.  I have 13 of an order of 20 done with another order of 6 angels and 6 snowflakes to do and an order for 2 shawls.  I also did several bracelets for an order.

Here is the first motif for one of the shawls.  It looks complicated but it isn't.
Oh and how about the beaver full moon this month?  Did you see it?  Here it is the first day.

However, I thought that it was prettier the second day.


And the trees and bushes are changing quite a bit.

Don't you love these two?  I hate seeing dogs riding in the back of a truck though.
And we mustn't forget Miss Sylvia Joy!
Thanks for visiting!  Huggles and blessings.

An outing

We took off on an adventure up Mt. Sequoya in Fayetteville Ar to enjoy the views and the fall foliage.  At one time it was a monastery but now it is a retreat run by the Methodist.

Back again!

Jack is getting so close to finishing his wolf project. He says it has been fun but he is ready to move on.
I have been making bracelets for someone and thought this would be a cute button for the kids one.  I will also uses flowers and bees.
I love beads and I thought these ones for the angels were pretty all missed together.
Here are some half finished angels.
And I finished my shawl today!  Now I will be toasty warm this winter!
Here is our miss Sylvia Joy!

Thanks for visiting.  Blessings and huggles!

Cross Stitch? Yes, please

I finally finished up all those potholders and would happily do it again!  It never gets old!  Here is the box full.
I also am doing bracelets for someone and enjoying them as well.  The black ones are not so easy as I can't see it well.
And I did pick up my Rose Sampler and enjoyed some time with it.  This the last bit of it, three pages along the bottom.
And I also managed this last week to cut out and assemble a loose fitting jumper from some fabric given to me.
I don't know if you like fog, but I love it and we had a wonderful foggy day this week.
There is also little peeks of fall color around here as the temps have been cool.

We had a noisy visitor too this past week.  I am pretty certain it is a killdeer.
I thought you might like to see our little craft room.  It is upstairs and has a lovely view of the mountain a short distance away and is pretty peaceful too.

This past week has had some beautiful clouds and sunsets.






Now for a Sylvia Joy fix!  I thought I would finish up my shawl, but Sylvia turned it into a kitty cozy.


And just chillin' out!
