Snowmen, eggnog, and stitching
Those three things sort of wrap up my past couple of days...Tuesday did some stitching with friends and we made these little snowmen from leftover batting and some wool scraps. Very fun.
The auction for the Humane Society went well. All the items sold and last night I found myself having to make another cat tote bag for a friend who though she had gotten it at the auction but who was outbid at the very last minute. (Macbeth can't understand why anyone would want a bag with cats on it...) I did not get the Scottie painting though it was not from lack of trying...working at the event and bidding do not mix well and like my friend I was edged out. Oh well, I have the real thing - even though mine really needs a haircut right now, yikes.
You may have seen around blogdom a photo exercise on color. I thought it would be fun to participate but realized I had too much on my plate right now. However today is "blue" which happens to be my favorite color! (or at least as much my favorite as red and green...though yellow is creeping up the charts too...) Anyway it is safe to say my favorite china or pottery is blue and white.
It doesn't matter to me where it came from
If there are other color involved
If it is the "perfect" blue...
Or if it is a plate, cup, bowl, or even rolling pin (bought at a flea market near the Berlin wall)....
Last year I put greenery up on top of the hutch with some red ornaments to make my blue and white fit with the Christmas season. Still time this year I guess!
Off to the market to pick up more pecans to make pralines for friends tonight....
