Good Morning

 There's Beautiful Sunrise happening here - very wintery with lots of gold and silver lighting up the sky!

Poor DS1. He found his little hen passed away this morning. She's been acting sick for a couple of days but seemed much better last night. He's understandably upset.

The shop was still warm enough last night that I was able to try making a couple 'teddy-bear' beads after I posted the pic of the others. I'm excited to see them this morning and get everythign cleaned and intot he kiln.

Barbara, if you PM your info, I'll see what I can do about getting you a thimble, but you need to understand that it may be a few weeks or more before I can get to the shop again.  I'm at the mercy of the weather, my husband - the fire starter; and Sprout. They rarely all come together in agreement. LOL

Now I had best get myself gathered up and ready to face the day. "Gotta go to town and stock the larder before our feast!

It was a busy weekend at my house.   My DD and I made 14 batches of hard candy, 1 batch of Vanilla truffles, 1 batch of chocolate truffles and 2 batches of peanut butter balls ...one with white choc. and one with reg choc.   The house sure smells good from all the oils used in the hard candy.

Then DD decided she needs me to make a tree skirt and 6 stockings to match.   And I need to get them done this week....geesh.   So today I will start cutting the fabrics.

Well the plan, again, is to finish the labels. Then, hubby is coming home early and we are going to town to get a Turkey for Christmas, they are never on sale at Christmas. I sure hope it is not too too busy. Wish me luck :)

Oh those gals did some really nice work for you, Barbara!  I've never seen a border like the one with multiple blues modified chevron - like it!  And whoever did the outer border was able to almost perfectly match your mariner's compass.  Wow!

We're having an incredibly beautiful day here in Minnesota in November.  It's so nice out that I've got the furnace turned off and a few windows open to air out the house.  DH is getting over a nasty cold, and I have been trying very hard not to catch it.  Can't deal with that on top of recouperating from facial surgery.  So I'm hoping to blow all the cold germs out of the house today.  :-)  I finally finished washing windows, too.

Tomorrow I see the surgeon to have 50 stitches taken out.  Ooo - wish me luck!

Barbara, whoever did all of your round robins did  fantastic job.  But then you gave them a great start with your mariners star.  Anyway, you have a beautiful quilt.   Ginny

barbara, you and the ladies did a wonderful job on your RR quilt.

nancy,  your stitches will come out easily.   that was one of the tensest parts of my working,  taking out the doc's stitches.  they were always way back by the uvula, with overgrown tissue, no anesthetic, and working in a mirror.   your's are right up front, outside and will be a breeze.
