It is the last day of November, already! Do you all get the impression that time just goes too fast for me? This post is fairly picture heavy.
I did get in some craft time and Retirement went from here
I'm very pleased her tools are not hovering in midair any more. Hopefully this week the basket will get a bottom.
The rug went from here
to here sorta. When I put the rug on the freezer (the only thing big enough to spread it out on) for the picture, Snowy immediately hopped off the cat tower and laid down on all the softness.
After several attempts to move him (he can jump back up faster than I can take a picture), I simply waited him out.
The last snowman is done! I have 3 and about 2/3 rows of the blue background and 5 rows of the red and white border to be finished.
I also received an envelope from Rosey who blogs as Ishkabibble with the patterns I had won in a giveaway. This is what I was lucky enough to receive.
My very first Prairie Schooler patterns! Anyone giving odds on the chances they will be stitched by next Christmas??
And you must be careful what you say to friends. My craft partner Cynthia posted on her FB page a notice for a one evening pottery painting workshop. I casually mentioned it looked like an interesting way to spend an evening and the next thing I knew, I was signed up. We had a choice of painting a yarn bowl or a mug and I chose a yarn bowl. Now, please understand, I can't draw on a flat piece of paper, never mind something 3 dimensional, so I just played with colour. It really was a fun evening and this is what I ended up with after the instructor took all the pieces to be glazed and fired.
Definitely not great art but it will be really useful.
