A week before Thanksgiving....

Hi again,

Well it's a few days before Thanksgiving and all through the house, not a creature was stiring not even a mouse, mainly because all my kitties love to play with the mice....

Well the fundraiser was a GREAT success!! I sold 19 out of 24 bags and was able to give the school about 50.00!!!! Not too bad! Then I went and did a show at a local hall and didn't do as well. Oh well. This is the last show I am planning for a bit. I have a few other things to work on.

I finally got to start my holiday shopping yesterday! I love this time of just can't be in a bad mood with Christmas! It is too much fun!

My knitting projects are moving right along. I am down to 3 sets done and 3 sets to go...making progress!! Progress is good!!

We found out last week that there is a fairly good chance that our family will be moving soon due to my dh's relocation of job! Hummm back to the East Coast?? OH can always be worse!!

Well, must get moving. Laundry to do, kids to get, work to until next time.

Hi again,

Well I have been busy working on several projects. I have decided that I am going to knit gifts for all my girls, 3 daughters and 3 neices. Do you think I would just pick a scarf or two??? Heck NO!!! I have decided to make 6, yes 6 sets of of hats, leg warmers and fingerless gloves (gauntlets). One set per girl!! I have several bags of yarn for the projects and now just need the time to do them all. I have almost finished two complete sets...hummm better get my fingers busy...

Another project I have been involved in is through one of my favorite web sites, Artistic We have been working since August on making stockings for the troops overseas in Iraq. To this date, our online group has contributed over 2000 stockings!! Whew...that is alot of sewing across the country!! They were all sent to a group in Illinois who are stuffing and sending them overseas to our deserving service people.

The next project I am still involved in but winding down on is a fundraiser for one of our local schools. I have been making tote bags for their fundraiser which is tomorrow night! 25% of the selling price will be going to the school. The bags cost only 10.00, such a deal!!! They are all embroidered, lined and made well to be going through the wash and what not. They are all pretty darn cool if I do say so myself!!

Along with all the above projects, I also have been working 5 nights per week and dealing with day to day issues with the kids. My husband has been fantastic throughout this and continues to be one of the good guys!!

Well that's abougt all for now. Tonite I am off of work and my husband has bowling, so I will be going to the bowling alley with him for some social time and uninterupted knitting time!!! Ahh the little joys in life!!!

Until next time....
