Traveling with the one you love makes every trip wonderful.
Well I have been busy crafting and making Christmas presents. Last year everyone got home made presents. They all thought it was cool so I am making them again this year. I won’t post any here because my family might see it. I will post later what I have made.
I have been making some stuff for my Etsy store though.
Well I have been doing all kind of things around the house to keep busy. We have been having some nice weather, so David and I took advantage of it. David takes very good care of the lawn. We have found one big difference is that it needs to be mowed once a week. In Alaska it was every two weeks to a month depending on the rain. I have been working in the flower bed and trying to put a garden in. It is a lot of fun planting all the different flowers and there are so many more things I can grow in the garden here.
I had already finish a crocheted afghan block of the month club. You got 3 blocks a month to crochet. Everything is included each month. It was a lot of fun learning new stitches and remembering ones I have used before.
I decided I would try the Quilting one. I have got several months worth but when I am sewing I am making masks. I only did the first one which was purses I made for the girls birthdays.
Then they offered the Creative Woman’s Kit of the Month club. The first thing I got was everything to build a birdhouse. I take it back, it didn’t have the glue but everything else was there including the paint.
My father has been whittling all his life. When he retired the got into woodcarving and he is fantastic. Whenever I am visiting I get him to give me lessons. I will never be as good as him but I do enjoy it. It is so relaxing. Here are some ornaments I made.
