The color of things, the way they are put together, the way food really tastes. How much there is to be thankful for. Even when you don't feel like it.

I've been working both on the knitting and the quilting a lot lately. I've concentrated on scarves and shawls for the knitting, and smaller, intimate quilts here. I love embellishing the quilts (and scarves) to personalize them. Hand and machine stitched, beaded and sewn. About 9x11"..
Very satisfying projects to do in an afternoon or two..
When we lived in S. Florida, I bought several hanging pointsetta baskets for the holidays. Of course, there, you can just hang them out anywhere. After the holidays, I planted them along the side of our house, as I hate to just get rid of something. By July, they were over my head, and bush-like. Amazing.

I've intend to make an entire blanket with this type of treatment. I've used various Noro's here, silk garden, kocoran, kureyon , crochet in various circles, then 'attaching' with crochet 'mortar'. A very freeing exercise, even more than, say, the granny square. Right now it's a stepping stone scarf, on it's way to where the road leads to.. yarn heaven?

I have another craft show on Sat., which, if I had my act together, I would be getting ready for..however, Fall, above all other seasons, seems like the briefest, most fleeting of them all. I can hardly sit still, and need to get out in it, before it all blows away, as it seems to overnight. Of course, a little companionship is welcome.
If you are near Fredericksburg VA this Sat. drop by and say Hi!
