It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like...

It appears it's the start of the "official"  holiday season tomorrow.  I'm trying hard to get in the mood.  Time just goes so fast these days it seems hard to keep up.  But I have started my Christmas shopping.  For me.  :D

My new thimble!!  Which I had to try out to make sure the fit was okay and I could stitch with it comfortably.  It fits well when my hands are warm and I use a little strip of moleskin on my finger to snug it up when my fingers are cold.  I love it!  I may even order another one next year...

So, in the test drive, I did manage a little stitching.

I'm about halfway done with the current page.  I'd really like to get this page and the next half-page done before the end of the year. 

The Christmas gift socks are coming along nicely.  I'm working on the gusset of the second sock, so it's looking like I should be okay for finishing for Christmas.  So I had to start something Christmasy...socks for me.

North Pole socks
Marathon socks/Universal Yarns

You can't get much more Christmasy than those!  Whether they will be ready for this Christmas remains to be seen. 

As I was coming back into the house after getting the mail, this little guy was right outside the door.

The best I can figure is this is a little leafhopper.  Cute little bugger, isn't he?

Happy Thanksgiving,



  1. Those socks look like there going to be great. Nice stitching:)

  2. Very Christmassy socks, good luck finishing those in time.

    I love the colours in your wip, it looks amazing. I've never used a thimble but I'm glad you're happy with your new one!!

  3. I love the colors in your cross stitch project. The socks will be awesome when finished. I always wanted to learn to knit but it seems so intricate and detailed.

  4. I have mentioned your blog on mine at
