It is that time of year I know but seriously not ready... It is calling for snow tonight and 25 degrees... I have had the woodstove going all day and it is prettttty toasty in here...
I made another attempt at making my own patterns. I am better with wood but this was fun.
I have a blue one almost done for my friend's birthday. This one is actually an orange color and is great for fall decorating.
In the making. I baked bloomers and dresses at lunch time. Love working from home :)
My sunflowers have finally blossomed and they look more like black eyed susans. If we really get snow tonight that might be all they look like this year lol.
Either I have really small sunflowers or realllllly big bees
I have made some other things but can't put them on my blog because they are Christmas gifts and the recipients might see them. Santa says you better not peek. Hence I can't make it too tempting for anyone.

Oh and my son has a five day break so I will be driving down to pick him up on Friday. I can't wait. It is always nice to have him safe and sound at home. It is almost like a heavy sigh. Plus I am making pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.... mmmmmmm yum.

Has anyone started their Christmas shopping yet? Do you make most of your gifts? I love the holidays. I can't wait for Thanksgiving. It is like the kickoff for the festivities to begin. I am hoping to have all my gifts made and wrapped by the beginning of December. I say that every year but not always successful. I have a few days off while my son is home so I think I am going to get out all my pre-purchased gifts and sort them so I know what I still need to do and buy.
Well I hope you are all having a wonderful week.
