I just got home from a morning at the Block Party Quilters' annual show. Becca and I went together, and we ran into a few others from my quilt group. Pictures to follow soon. Meanwhile, here's what was on my needles a few days ago. Since then that pair of mitts is done, and a second pair in a different color is on its way. The pattern, a fun and interesting one,
is Point Reyes from the Classic Elite newsletter a while ago. The mate of the little mitten is one of what's on my needles right now. Check out Patchwork Times to see what others are knitting today.
These Christmas stockings were finished and turned in. Our group along with some others makes the needed 88 stockings each year that are filled and hung on the door of each family's room at the local Ronald MacDonald House.
Not long ago on a foggy morning, I looked out our second story window and thought my eyes were tricking me. A very crafty and determined spider had spent who knows how long spinning its web way up high. It was only just barely attached to the string from a plant on the patio below that ran up to the second floor. Don't you wish you could weave like that?
For those of you who've been holding their breath, wondering what Daniel and Sophia wore on Halloween. Here's the answer: (Rumor has it they wore different outfits for their school parties but no photos to prove it!)
Back when we were in Illinois a few weeks ago, Dick and I made our teaching debut in David's classroom. I read part of a story about the Wright brothers
and Dick talked to the kids about how airplanes fly. Everyone then had a lot of fun trying to fly their paper airplanes out in the hallway. One plane went 34 feet!
Ginger could care less about all this. Ah, the life of a cat!
