Baby it’s Cold Outside…

The snow started at noon on Friday and ended about an hour ago - make that around 8pm Sunday for those of you keeping track at home.  Do I mind it? Not one bit! It’s so beautiful! I hope to get some photos tomorrow when I exit the cave (our home) for the first time in 48 hours.

Everyone is finally feeling better. We’d all been quite sick…

Not Feeling so Hot...

But during that time I found a few hours to learn how to chain ply…

Even though we’ve laid low these last few days, I’ve still been very busy. The shop had the final update for the year! We did quite well the day it launched and more items are selling every day. I have kept up with shipping and am proud to say I’ve been shipping same day as purchase. I love to get people’s items in the mail ASAP because I know how badly I want my items when I’ve paid for them! Here is some eye candy from the shop…

Speaking of getting mail, I received a few items I ordered in the mail the last few days - I’ll try and photo those soon and share them with you. I’ve also finished up the shopping and Peanut and I completed about half of our baking today! Only two loves of bread, two pies and four dozen cookies to go! :) I am also proud to say that My holiday knitting is complete! I can share one item with you -

Grams Polish Pottery Mug Cozy

Gram's Polish Pottery Mug Cozy

This was a nice, quick knit. It’s a mug cozy for Sean’s Gram. She loves to have “tea” with our son daily, so we thought this might be something she’d like. She’s often chilled, so having the cozy on the mug will allow her to enjoy the warmth as well! I’ll share the other knits once they’ve been gifted - hopefully modeled by the recipients.

In other news, Gracie received her Christmas gift a little early.

Gracies New Digs

Gracie's New Digs

She seems to love it. She’d taken to sleeping on the couch to escape the draft.

My gift from Sean

I too received my gift early, as did Sean, since the holiday will be mostly about Peanut and other family members we decided to exchange this weekend so we could steal a few moments to enjoy them. I am down to brain age 34 already! Progress my friends. :) I’ll try and steal a photo of Sean enjoying his gift tomorrow…
