Feeling Pained!!!

DANG IT!!!!  I'm home and getting ready to prep some projects and misjudged my heavy cutting table countertop and stood up catching the corner on my fleshy back under the left shoulder.  Even with the Biofreeze spray it HURTS!!!!!  I think I just about snapped off my front teeth.  Wonder what colours I'll have tomorrow?

A Good Day - Feeling Happy!

Well the Cookie Walk was another hit this year for St Peter's Anglican Church.  My craft table was drawing interest and my sales climbed this year but not for my tatted snowflakes or holiday mug rugs - hmmm!  So I treated myself to a banana cranberry loaf and Mary's grape jelly as I'm nearing the end of Colleen gifted jar.  Then I made a donation to the church, mailed off the few Christmas cards, purchase at Fabricland and dropped off my donation at Save On Foods for Winnipeg Harvest.  Then back to the dogs and a late lunch catching the Homann curling win over Jones!  Hockey/curling tonight and maybe some relaxing tatting/reading/game playing!  Tomorrow is down time with maybe pot holders sewing.

Merry Christmas

For many reasons I'll not be mailing out individual Christmas cards!  I had fun making up my personal collage ecard.  Let 2018 be all and more of what you wish for!

Cookie Walk Bake Sale

If by chance you're in the area tomorrow morning between 10 and noon drop into St Peter's Anglican Church on Elm and Grant.  I'll be there with some of my craft items and my tatted snowflakes plus a few others with their items too.

Awesome Evening!

I'm finally back at Fionn MacCool's with Linda and Patrick after Tina's August visit and first attempt at curling my longer hair.  Also enjoying our free appetizer with GC from Mary's mailbox.

My first such performance - The Nadeau Ensemble A Prairie Christmas.  I'm hoping I totally enjoy this harp event.

Oooohhhhh this is so beyond my expectations that my tummy is a jitter with appreciation.   Thank you Linda for asking if I wanted to attend.  Well it's break time so I'm posting a few pics and stretching.

She sang a heart wrenching Peace on Earth was sad but beautiful. 

Then we went into the gaming area to play on the $10 free play given with our tickets.  Well first off ran into Pat and Dave and then Evelyn and Ken too!  Well I put in my $20 to get the $10 free - played maybe 20 minutes until it was gone and cashed out at $21.90 - big spender and winner - zippo on my monies.

I love the decor!
At this tree ran into the guy from Vic's Fruit
- I didn't recognize him but he knew me!

Thanks Patrick for these photos
- I cropped them.

I'm home and still feeling good after that awesome performance!  Now I hope I enjoy the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra Christmas event too at the WAG on the 17th!

Feeling Crazy?

Well I didn't work on the towels as I mentioned yesterday until much later after getting more work on the selvedges projects one step further - more strings n bits for your feeder Taunya.  So first off I finished the 4 pieces for pairs of Christmas pot holders, then decorated the fronts of the Christmas stockings and after all that and a late supper I finished off all the towels.  Now relaxing and trying to get caught up on the curling draws!

Each piece will be two matching pot holders. 

Just another view of the above.

Here's the decorated fronts
 - now to see them up.

This group (more of each) were the last finished off tonight.

This group were worked on while in Ontario mid November.

Feeling Proud

After another walking session but this one was 7 km at 5.6 km/hr window shopping in the Outlet Collection Mall (faster pace than outside).  I'm really trying to get back on my 3 times a week of at least 6.5 km each walk - so far this two weeks I'm stepping up to that goal.    Didn't buy anything except coffee and scone to tide me over till lunch at home.  Dropped off my small bags for Katsu's walks and my recycle at the depot and now home to watch curling and finish off my kitchen towels.
