I'm still living...

Sorry I haven't blogged in a month...with all thing considered...there's so much going on and yet I feel like a slug about it. Thanksgiving has passed and that is good, because I didn't totally stuff myself. Christmas is next...*sigh* It's just too commercial for me. Many people feel bigger is better and I would prefer to just get together as a family and enjoy the company...I guess I'm strange that way.

Anyway, I completed a small purse for my step MIL for her birthday in early November. I was late getting to her, but she loved it just the same. I knitted, yes I said knitted, the outside with a chenille type yarn in a olive-brown color using a form of basketeave stitch and attempted my first "cable" with the stag horns on the flap and then lined it in shimmery gold. If I were to do it again, I will know to sew the lining up separately and then tack into place. Although I adjusted the tension on my sewing machine...the foot just kept catching the knitted top...although I didn't try taking the foot off and sewing...dunno. Without further ado...here it is:

I've also completed a set of dishclothes for my "sister by choice" in a funky lime green, lemon yellow, and sea side blue...she loves those colors. But alas, no pics.

Hope everyone had a wonder Thanksgiving!

I am so glad you posted. I still have not lined one darn purse yet!

Dishcloths are always nice to receive.
