Wow! Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, and all.
Here in Austin one hears fewer “sleigh bells in the snow” and more “flip-flops on the sidewalk”.
It’s a fast-topic-changing-Friday, I hope you know the drill…
|My shameless begging for Christmas cards has turned out to be such a great experience! Cards have come from all over the world! The Christmas wishes written inside are so very sweet and heartfelt.
Besides the written notes, I’m enjoying the smiling family photos, the recipes, the trinkets…each card is like a giant Christmas present.
I am so grateful.
|Speaking of cool things in the mail…
Tammy sent me The World’s Sexiest Earrings. Ha-cha! Tammy happens to be my online pal and personal fashion adviser in addition to being an amazing metalsmith.
I have found that wearing these earrings guarantees a good time. Magic? Maybe.
Actually resting their bodies in the soft grass is just too “country” for these dogs. A bug might touch them or something, I guess.
|On the needles…a baby sweater, specifically Vestee from knitty.com. I didn’t want to make it until I saw one knit-up in person.
Another pink knit for my little niece. (She will never be mistaken for a boy again!)
|Bad dog. I get up from my tv/knitting spot for ONE STINKIN’ MINUTE and Ike moves in.
I know for a fact that he doesn’t need the light. He might just find a lump of coal in his stocking.
Have a great weekend!
