Here is it deep into November and I cannot get into my blogging mojo because I’ve been sooo busy making Christmas gifts which I can’t talk about. Tis the season not to be nosy, I tell my family when they ask what I’m making. I always do this. Just before Christmas I get in the “must make gifts” mode and start sewing up a storm.
I’ve been going through all my boxes of fabric and I tell you, it’s like Christmas. I am finding fabric I had completely forgotten about and have gotten so many ideas for Christmas gifts.
I have found several quilt tops that need to be quilted. That is on my list for 2022. Finish some of those quilts. And I’ve found some things my mother had started and not finished that I would like to complete, also. I go to bed all excited about the next day when I can get out into my shop and sew! And I won’t be able to show you anything I’ve made until after Christmas!
David has been off this week getting some work done around the house. He also has built some things I can’t show you because of, well, Christmas. It’s Santa’s workshop here for sure. I really love what he has made and after I add my touches I think there will be gifts well received.
We went on another Country Friends tour where all these ladies open their homes and shops and sell things they have made or had in stock. We made it to about five of the places until it started pouring down rain. I was happy, though, because I got what I was looking for. Can’t show that stuff, either. Sorry I cannot show pictures this time. The real reason is that I have a new camera and have not learned how to get my pictures up to my blog, but I will learn soon and get it done. I have tons of pictures I have been taking. Just hope I remember what they are pictures of when I get them ready to show you. Anyway the tour was fun and we got to drive the back roads of rural Indiana and see all the beautiful Autumn colors. The colors were so vivid this morning like a light had been turned on the trees and bushes. I love Indiana in the Autumn. We have talked about living in a warmer climate, but I know I would really miss the seasons so we are where we are supposed to be. I am even looking forward to snow. We haven’t had a really good snow for a few years.
A few weeks ago we were at Rural King and at the counter I saw Sugar Daddies for sale. If you don’t know what Sugar Daddies are they are caramel on a stick essentially and I loved them as a kid. I remember when my baby brother was born. He’s now in his sixties. When Mom and Daddy brought him home they placed him in the baby bed and all us other children surrounded the crib to look at him. Daddy had brought us all Sugar Daddies and we were all eating them as we stared at the new baby. I was a little jealous because that had been my bed just a few days ago! Fast forward to me at Rural King seeing Sugar Daddies for sell again and I had to have one. I hadn’t eaten one since I was a kid. A few days later I decided to eat it and it was so good, but halfway through I felt a crunch in the caramel and I looked and saw what I thought was a broken tooth. I cleaned the piece up and called the dentist. It turned out I had pulled off a crown and thankfully I had saved it so the dentist just had to reapply it so it wasn’t anything major, but I’ve had to give up Sugar Daddies. And I had two more cavities. Can you be too old to have cavities? I thought that, but I was wrong.
I’ve rattled on long enough. Next time I promise pictures. Really. Bye.
