Tis the season

For dodging these

Went running this morning. Just a short run ( time constraints) and discovered the acorns are ready. Only got hit once today.   Acorns are everywhere on all of my run routes. I look at it like an added adventure to running.

Good news

Well I found some interfacing while I was going through things. Yeah!! So I cut out the rest of the circles and even had a little left over just in case I need more.  For this Christmas quilt I am going more for throw size so I should be ok. 
With the weather changing and my finger healing my thoughts are moving toward wooly things. I washed everything and it's drying. I also found out that Mj will need a new hat. Hence winding up the gorgeous red yarn. Dyed by my friend it is special. 

Non gory picture of my new scar. Healed pretty quick :)

New plan

Well silly me forgot that I used the white fabric in other projects :(. So instead I decided to try this circle quilt with some Christmas fabric scraps I have. 
K is behind me sewing. 

Well that worked out until I ran out of interfacing. :(  So even though I did see today nothing really accomplished. These two project will go on the back burner until there's some extra money around. Tomorrow I am going to go throughout fabric and see if there is something I can start and finish. Fingers crossed.

Next sewing project

19 colors (reds, oranges, yellows, greens,  blues and purples - Roy G. Biv ) and 6 different sized circles (they are drawn in the squares) will hopefully turn into a quilt big enough for our bed. If not I'll have to get more fabric. This will be definitely a long term since it will require a lot of hand sewing.

New cross stitch

My finger is healing but still sore. I actually tried to knit yesterday but the way I knit the needle hits the cut. Could not have been in a better spot. I did however finish this

Minions for MJ. Still needs to be ironed and I have to figure out how to frame it.

There will be a delay in crafting

I am not going to show any gory details. Tonight while slicing bread for dinner (with a very sharp new bread knife) the knife slipped and my finger was in the way. Bloody mess that took its sweet time to stop bleeding. Of course it's right on the pad of my index finger. Ugh

And Three Down

A was the last to go to school. Here she is waiting for the bus. A bus that never came - 8th year in a row we had a problem with the bus going to Paumanok. Over a quarter of a billion dollar budget  and they can't get busing right. Pretty sad. Anyway

Yes she's getting tall. Her last year in elementary school. Thank goodness. I can not take this school anymore
