Class is going well, I have aced my quizzes and posted assignments. Also, I posted some samples of my work on the discussion board. Lesson 8 was posted today and there are four lessons after that. Time flew by! My next big task is to finish up my schedule through June for Amazing Threads. i am excited about starting classes, soon and noticed a post on Ravelry about the Groupon! I am ready. The Polymer Clay class at Creative Souls is full, I have the clay and tools ready. We will focus on faces with a Christmas theme--snowmen! I have some components ready from a previous class, which will help with the demonstration and speed things along so students can get creative and have fun.
Jim and I are having a get-together on Sunday and I have to get the house ready...we put up the tree last Sunday, I strung lights a couple of days ago, and it is time to finish decorating. Last night was Round Table and I made a delicious Dutch Oven apple cobbler. I used Braeburn apples and they held their crispness nicely. It was a typical apple crisp recipe, but I loved the nutmeg and ginger in addition to the cinnamon in the topping. I used Craisins instead of raisins and cut a couple of tablespoons of butter out. Actually, I was too lazy to get more butter from the other freezer. It smelled and tasted heavenly! There is one serving left in the refrigerator...I believe I hear it calling my name!
|Ornaments for giving. (Except for the one on the lower|
right--that was my first.)
|Flossie Bear detail. A very fun project to knit. She|
needs some stuffing and her ears stitched.
|I found the Cuddle Cloth pattern on Ravelry. You can find|
Frankie's site here.
|This was an irresistible find at Home Goods. Although it is a|
baby blanket, the charming animals reminded me of
Wood Badge critters, and is a perfect lap blanket without
bulk when I sit at the computer. How can one resist the cuteness?
