Where Did The Summer Go...And What I have Been Up To!

Summer came and went! -----Now we are almost to the end of Fall! Is your Turkey thawing, yet?  
We took our annual trip to Galina, Illinois for four days the weekend of October 25th. We based in Galina and toured the Galina Territory along with side trips to Minnesota and Wisconsin. The fall colors along the Mississippi River Road were spectacular! Guttenberg, Iowa was a blaze with fall colors! 
The views from our deck were beautiful.  
Few pictures of downtown Galina 

 We took this picture a few years ago, first snow!
When we returned home our Christmas Cactus was in full bloom. 

I have been sewing aprons, quilts, creating Santa's, small quilt tops for wire table toppers and painting watercolor cards. 
                      I was a vendor at the Edgewater Retirement Complex, last weekend. a week and a half, I will be a vendor in the Holiday Market on 39th Street!
I have missed blogging, and all of you! I will post more.

'Happy Thanksgiving' to you and your families!
This is a special time of the year -----so much to be thankful for!
Hug's, Carolyn

Super Bowl Sunday!

 Snow started last night....
 .....and it's still snowing! We could receive up to 10 inches!
This is a great day to stay warm and cozy inside...maybe I should start planning a valentine project using old valentines cards. I will print them individually on cream fabric and frame them with my red and white fabrics.    
 I could knit awhile---however, 
Miss "Abbie" has my project and is keeping me in stitches! 
Snow, working on some projects, Super Bowl watching.... and making Chili... is perfect for today and tonight!
Hoping you are having a great day!
Hugs, Carolyn

A Special Time of the Year!

 The eve before..... 
and all is bright..... 
and the table is set---- 
with  the center piece too!

                                                            A letter to "Santa" written ....
                                           my mother Virginia Lee in 1919

We made Mildred's (mother-in-law) "Christmas Gum Drop" Bread.    
We awakened this morning--- light dusting of snow arrived just in time!
Wishing you and your families our "Special Blessings".
