Back to normal

I've settled back into my normal routine after the busyness of the past few weeks and it feels so good. We had a wonderful busy few days with family celebrating Thanksgiving and for the four youngest grandkids also Christmas since we won't see them then. Our only group picture (minus my hubby who was home smoking the brisket and turkey)is after the 5k Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning we always stop for a bit of beverage before driving home and always find someone willing to be our photographer.


I finished the pair of socks I started this summer and wore them the next day, they were delightfully warm and cozy. This is my 12th pair since I started knitting in 2011.

I've put the border on the blue and white quilt top and I'm now waiting for fabric for the backing.

2018 Weekly leaf #48

The last 5 are all cyanotypes on green fabric.

Lots of background and a few more shapes added.





I'll be linking up with "Off the Wall Friday" and "Slow Sunday Stitching"

  1. Good for your family for doing the turkey trot! I should do that instead of spending the morning in pajamas with coffee.

    1. It's actually something we all look forward to, at least they all act like they do.

  2. The blue and white quilt really turned out very nice. Of course I love those colors. I never learned to knit but I do like those socks.

    1. Thanks Kathy, it is a really fun tradition and a healthy way to start our day of overindulgence.
