Santa and Christmas

Before the mad rush of Christmas (and Thanksgiving) start
I thought this might be a gentle reminder
It's from this book - The Book of Santa Claus
It has beautiful old pictures of Santa

I have always loved books
Especially childrens books
And so slowly, but surely, a collection of children's Christmas books are piling up here

Anyone else have some that they love
I would love to add them to my, at the moment, tiny collection

Someday, there will be a grandchild that Grandma (me) can read them too

Just thought I would share ......

...that I just spent 10-15 minutes walking home in the rain!!

and no, I haven't lost my mind
or I don't think I have

It's just with temps in the 30's for quite a few days
And humidity in the very high 90's
And a body that is continually on over-heat now days

I was thoroughly enjoying a very light and gentle bit of rain falling on me

And to top it all off
A gentleman offered to share his umbrella for the short distance we were on the same path

Who said chivalry was dead!

Hi everyone
You may have noticed my lack of projects over the last couple/few/lots of months.
Well I have been crafting
Just felt that my posts were getting a bit b-l-a-h

But today I felt like sharing a few of my favourites with you
All have been Ravelled here

Borrowed the baby to see size and fit, as I sort of designed it.
Her Mum loved it, so bought it from me  :-)

By the way, you may have noticed a new button at the top of my side Bar
Well that goes directly to a little shop I opened
I'm hoping I might be able to sell a few projects
At least enough to help pay for the ever-rising costs of posting away my charity items

Fingers crossed for me please

And you thought there was no crochet ......
I really wanted to make this pattern (old memories), but had so much trouble with the starting chain - no give and so very small.
Then I tried foundation dc/sc - that gave me the little bit of stretch and width I wanted.
Don't know why it took me ??? times to work that out   :-)

And for those in Australia
Hope the horses are lucky for you today!!!!
