I’ve always been curious about wool felting and when one of the gals from my hooking group offered to teach me how, I jumped at the chance. I was pleasantly surprised to find out how easy it is…and here’s my first attempt.
An old world style St. Nick holding a miniature bottle brush Christmas tree. He stands about 6” high and is currently taking up residence in a bowl of blueberries on one of the shelves in my studio. Thanks, Betty!
In my last blog entry, I posted the recipe for my Harvest Veggie Casserole and received several emails asking about rutabagas. To those ‘no-reply’ bloggers, a rutabaga is a north American-ism for the common turnip.
The order that I placed for the 2-ply, 12 wt Aurifil thread arrived on Friday so you know what I was doing all weekend…
Designing and working on next month’s First Friday Freebie! December 2nd will be here before we know it!
I can’t tell you how much I ♥ this thread!
I am also in the throes of setting up an Etsy shop. Everything is good to go, save the fact that I’m not happy with the quality of the photos I’ve taken of the items that will be for sale, some of which will be my original First Friday Freebie samples. As soon as I have some decent images to upload, I’ll announce the Grand Opening!
Just this morning, I put to bed all of my fall decorating items until next year.
How bare everything looks!
I asked Mr. Painted Quilt if he could bring in the plastic bins labeled “Christmas” from our outbuilding and all I got was the “you’ve got to be kidding” look.
I know he’ll do it…but in his own time.
And lastly, this is in response to all of you wonderful people who have made inquiries about my health.
My main focus at this time is to keep both my hands and mind occupied and to stay positive. I still tire very easily, otherwise, I feel no differently than I did a couple of months ago. My next PET scan is scheduled for the 12th of December, followed by a meeting on the 19th with the head oncologist to discuss the results.
