Make and Listen




Making:

~ Justin and I have been working together to create a new toy for Schoolhouse Toys...a little gnome cottage and four little gnomes

~ first Christmas present done...fingerless mitts for my youngest niece, now three more pairs to knit for my nephew and two other nieces

~ food, and lots of it, has been canned over the last week, the pantry shelves are filling up and I couldn't be happier

Listening:

~ right now the air is filled with the sounds of country music, there is a big concert in our area this weekend and we will be enjoying the sounds of live artists all weekend long from the comfort of our backyard

What are you making and listening to?

  7. So many wonderful makings. That yarn looks so familiar, like Izzy's milo you made her maybe? Lovely. And I love the new toy.

    Also, I never realized you had so many little ones (the nephew and nieces) in your life. I love that you do as it's just the best to be surrounded by so much love and to be able to shower it on them, isn't it? :)

    1. Thanks Sara. Yes, same yarn, I had some left over and knew my youngest niece would love it.

      Yes, I have one nephew and three nieces, love them all dearly. My brother has three kids and Justin's sister has one.
