I thought I'd take a break from the Virginia stuff to let you in on what I was doing all those months I wasn't blogging.
I attended WhiskyFest in Chicago. I really came into my own regarding the water of life. We had a wonderful time with a group from the Dundee Dell.
This is George Grant from Glenfarclas. We love Glenfarclas.
Worked with other women in my quilt group to make a Nebraska quilt for the coordinator of the group who is moving. The center pinwheel blades are in the shape of the state of Nebraska. We made it with scraps from other quilts we made as a group, plus from our stash. I love this quilt and am thinking of making one of my own.
Bought a new car--a '93 Honda Element. It was in excellent condition and had less than 60,ooo miles. I love this car.
Had a birthday.
Worked with the women in the quilt group to make a quilt for Habitat for Humanity.
Cleaned a lot of mud off the dog
Knitted a bag holder--one of those that you pull bags from the bottom.
Knitted a Log Cabin baby blanket for my new cousin.
I'm knitting while here in Virginia, too, and will get some pictures up later. I've made a Christmas stocking and am making a scarf for Al (black, plain, simple black so he can wear it with his uniform) and a market bag. I'm trying to decide between the stockings or market bags for Christmas gifts.
I also read a lot during my break, mostly cozies. I'm still reading the Hamish MacBeth mysteries by MC Beaton and I read a few of the China Bayles mysteries by Susan Wittig Albert, but I kind of lost interest in those. While I'm here in the condo, I'm still reading the cozies. Funny that I used to tease my mother about reading those because they are all the same, but it's all I have patience for right now, and they are pretty enjoyable. But there are a lot of great used bookstores here, and I think I'll get some other books.
Anyone got any suggestions? What are you reading?
