Both my daughter and husband have October birthdays. Once those are over, seems like Christmas is right around the corner - just waiting to hit me in the face! So......
First off, I bought myself a little gem. Actually I had planned on asking the hubbs for it as a Christmas gift, but they are somewhat difficult to find (for those of us that are not fortunate enough to attend fiber festivals), so when I saw the type I wanted available online, I jumped on it!
Oh, and the basket it's living in right now:
But....back to the "Season" aspect of this post:
I really have started my Christmas shopping, mostly for the BG, of course!
And at my house anyway, he is all about organization and keeping all the pieces and parts of his toys together. He's also fascinated with my recently sewn project bags, so I'm making him some to keep his toys in.
One final shot of the twin (almost) shawls, which were well received, btw.
Oh, and I part with a question. Would really appreciate it if someone out there could help me.
Oh, and an update on my Christmas Cacti. I left them outside for two mild freezes, and brought them in. Three days later, they were covered with tiny buds. Buds are getting big now, so again they will probably be earlier than Christmas blooms, but at least they will be blooming! I have no green thumb, but am happy that I figured out how to get them to bloom - even though many of you do nothing special and have great luck. That was definitely not my situation.
Off to spin again......
later - k
