This Week!

We accomplished a lot this week.

Sunday we managed to finish putting one coat of stain over the whole house. I was sitting on the lower roof trying stain a section at the back of the house. (Not bad for an old girl!)

Then I decided to finish sewing a gift that was now a month overdue. After looking at the state of the workroom downstairs it was clear to me that it was time to be rid of the fabric in the basement, mostly because it was not mine!

We loaded the car and I took it away on Monday.
A few new things that I haven't posted about, Maxima yarn from Manos, lovely soft, fair trade, 100% wool! Fabulous!
Then there is the Louet Mooi (which is Dutch for 'pretty') a Bamboo, Bison and Cashmere blend! (Okay it's expensive, but lovely and sometimes its worth spending a 'small fortune' for a special gift, for yourself or someone else.)

Of course I had to do a sample! May as well be lace!

A new shipment of notions arrived last week. Labels, cute buttons, tiny sweater key fobs, needle cases.....I just need to find room.

Mitten Club meets from 7 - 8:30, the dates have changed since the original schedule. (Next Friday is Thanksgiving weekend.)
There were 6 of us last time. If you can't make the Mitten Club meetings you can still make mittens for our Charity Project. Mittens sold during October will raise funds for UNICEF.
Come see the selection we have already accumulated.

See You Soon!
