I cannot believe that tomorrow will be December 1st! Where has this year gone? I have the house all decorated and today wrapped all the gifts to date! What a relief that is! Now it's time to get out my Silpats and baking sheets and start the cookie baking..........but alas need some freezer space!!! Have been busy knitting some gifts and even made myself a shawl to wear Christmas Eve! The close up photo shows what the yarn looks like much better! It was easy and fun to make! So still a little more shopping to do, cards to make, and I should be ready!!! Hopefully next Christmas won't creep up as fast as this one did!

The leaves are almost all out of the trees! Only another raking or two. Enjoying the warm days we have been having. Haven't been stamping much and really need to start my Christmas cards! Made a few treats for Halloween and now it's time to switch to Winter themes. Will hopefully have something to post before the holidays!

Okay..........you can see that I am not good at keeping this up to date! I will try to do better! Still doing the same old thing though! Stamping, cooking, and knitting! And hubby wonders why I never get the housework done! GEEZ! I did go up to NY last week with my sister, sister-in-law, and friend and we went to the Martha Stewart show! Had a great time, and walked so much that I ached for two days after we came home! It was great to see how the show is put together. We also took a cab to Ground Zero. I haven't been to NY since the 70's and wanted to make sure I got there at least. Hard to do a lot with only 2 days there. There are still working there of course, but it still brought tears to my eyes, reading the memorials and seeing all the photos. So very sad. Will try to post again later! Maybe show some of my latest projects!
