Happy Thanksgiving

Still on the slow dial up for now, so it takes 8 times as long to do anything.

The pumpkin pie is done, even though my husband went out and bought one after I told him I was making one (I ALWAYS make one. I think I even made one when I was going through chemo) and mine are very good. There are two pumpkin breads in the oven because there was so much pumpkin left over. The pie and bread are made from pumpkins I bought from a local farm.

The cranberry tangerine relish is in the fridge and is VERY good. Lots of things done but lots more to do tomorrow! We are having 12 people over, so that's nice.

Even though I am crabbing about this stupid dial up connection and my husband is being so surly lately I do have to be thankful for my health, my friends and family, I live in a nice house, have food and live in the greatest country on earth.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! And for those who are in other places that don't celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful day!

Patience . . .

It may be a virtue but I'm running pretty low on it these past few days. Back on a slow internet connection until . . . whenever. We'll see.

However, I will post my latest here:

Magenta Palette scarf

This scarf was fun to weave. The warp (yarn going the long way) is tencel in jewel tones. the weft (horizontal) is a wool yarn from Koigu, which has so many handpainted color combinations. It's a beautiful yarn and I'm glad I had some to use in this scarf.

Today I'll work on things to take to Swift Waters tomorrow.

I took a little trip up to Boston with my husband early this week. It's only an hour and a half from us, so just a little jaunt! He had business and - I didn't! So I walked the Freedom Trail, which is a really great way to see some of the famous and historical sites around Boston. I'd
walked it before but it's always a fun thing to do.

You love his beer but remember that Samual Adams was a patriot and a signer of the Declaration of Independence!

Granary Burial Ground, where you will find the tombs of Ben Franklin, Sam Adams, Paul Revere, and many other patriots

And, my latest scarf, Kancamagus Highway on a Teal Day, listed Monday and sold by the time I got back from Boston! I was going to save it to send to an open house at Sleepy Moon Soaps in Franklin, CT but thought, I'll list it for now. Glad I did!

The holidays shouldn't really sneak up on me. They don't. I see them out tof the corner of my eye, but I'm over here, la la la, playing with my yarn, listening to my music, daydreaming, and POOF! They're in my face. I'm just sayin' . . .
Here are a couple of holiday-ish things in my shop:

Blank notecards with a handwoven piece on the front, set of four.

Little Red Reindeer Ornament

Very sweet framed glass ornament, embossed with one of the eight tiny reindeer.
