I’ve made good progress on some things and not so much on others. I’ve even done some Christmas sewing. I did ship a big order of IH&B items to Hoffmans too.

A happy finish is this throw I started sometime back. I felt a little over-ambitious a the time hoping I’d have this done by Thanksgiving but I actually did get it done…Yeah!! I used this pattern and some inexpensive craft store yarn. I added several leaf pattern repeats beyond what the pattern called for to make it more of a wrap/small throw for chilly evenings.

I also made a Tom Turkey Pillow! Pop over to this blog and make one for yourself. It was a quick little project and I’m pretty pleased to have another nice Autumn decoration around here! While you’re at it you should consider following the Tom Turkey designer over on instagram! She is hosting an adorable Christmas quilt-along. I’ve even added a free kit (with book purchase) to go with the book used for the project at my webshop. Be sure to read my description carefully regarding the gingerbread pattern needed!

I haven’t made as much progress as I’d like on my November stitching project. My eyes aren’t what they used to be…I can’t stitch much after dark anymore :0(

And while I’m on the subject of getting old(er) …Jerry and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary this month! The best thing about getting old(er) is getting old(er) with him!
