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.

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?
