It seems like time is slipping away. Already it's the holiday season, & I have a few dozen projects I would like to get finished, & doubt I'll have time for any of them. I listened to Christmas movies today in the studio, while working on a scarf for a class sample. I have to have the samples done & paper work organized by the 10th. It's a lot of thread-play on top of Angelina Fibers. There is white wash-away stabilizer behind it here. The Angelina is an Opalescent with a purple shine.
Warren got his rock work finished today. He still wants to put some sort of trim around it, & then we'll call the fireplace guys to come & install the stove.
We had a lovely Thanksgiving at the Meyn's. Lots of food & fun. We stayed up late & slept until 11 a.m. the next day. I never sleep that late anymore. It was strange for me, but it felt good.
It's been snowing like crazy here, all day today. I've started putting up the Christmas decorations. It'll probably take me all week to get them done. I still have shopping to do too. I wish I were as good as my DH at Christmas shopping. He starts in January.

Glad you had a good Thanksgiving! The scarf is so delicate in contrast to the stone wall-wow, going to be amazing when finished!

The scarf takes your breath away, it is so beautiful. Warren's wall turned out great also, can't wait to have a glass of Aunt Ethel's wine sitting at his bar with the woodstove burning, then I'll stumble out to the hot tub and dive in.

Hi Deb. I have just been catching up on your blog and enjoyed being busy with you! You may have noticed that I seem to have gone off blogging recently? Thanks for your comments. I have had a short holiday and I think I may be ready to come back, I do hope so, as I miss my online friends.
