    Thanks, Lana.

    I would like to decide on some small gifts to make for DGDs for Christmas, work on some felt food for Sonja's November birthday (coming right up!), decide on and start making ornaments for DGDs (3), continue making progress on the felt Christmas stocking, address some Christmas cards, Advent mittens for JB (not needed for this Christmas though) … the list goes on ...

    The weeks leading to Christmas are certainly flying by now. I need to finish off a few things that are needed for this Christmas, like the snowman ornaments and then would like to start the list for next year.
    I already have a few ideas, must keep away from Pintrest!!!

    Yes the weeks are flying by.
    This week I need to get the doll knit set finished up, cards finished and get sewing.

    Lucie ~ I have some wood slices to stain or paint, too, but I think I can enlist DH.

    I don't have any special plans this week till Thursday, and that's tentative; so I should have some quality crafting time … except for helping DH in the yard.

    Can't believe the end of October is already waving at us!!! Yipe!!!

    I've been working on 2nd felt Meade notebook cover and will continue to plug away at that during lunches, drive thus, karate class and in the evenings.

    This week is going to be hectic - grocery shopping for camping tonight, then going over to help a friend clean/prep house for a showing this Friday - tomorrow night is karate - Wed night is the last night before our camping trip so it is going to be CRAZY.

    Better than being bored, right? Probably won't get much crafting done this week, but we'll see...

    Took way longer than I thought to paint the wood slices. they are done but I need to varnish, put ribbons and add tag 'handmade by Lucie 2018' and then wrap.

    Well done, Lucie!!! :)

    Not a lot to report on my progress other than I am ALMOST done with embroidery on second felt notebook cover. But tonight will be camping prep and tomorrow we leave on our trip - returning Sunday.

    Looking forward to more crafting next week! It's getting to be CRUNCH time!

    Lucie ~ Cute snowmen!

    Rose ~ Can you make me a coat and hat like the white and red one, please? Such a well-dressed doll she will be!

    Not much crafting to report here, unfortunately.
