feeling festive

I'm in complete denial that in about a week we will be feasting for Thanksgiving. Where in the world did November go? Sometimes I swear that we enter a strange time vacuum on Halloween and don't re-emerge until after the new year ... while I may want to deny the passage of time, my crafting is 100% starting to get into the holiday spirit!

I've been in the mood to do some needlepoint for ages now, and when I spotted these adorable needlepoint ornament kits on Etsy I couldn't resist. These are going to go fast! Sooo addictive and fun!

Other signs that the holidays are upon us ....

 My Christmas cactus is starting to show buds!

 Gift knitting in progress. (shh! I'm bound and determined to make a hat for my husband this year...)

 A going-away present for a sister who got a new job ...

And a test-knit sweater for me, me, me. 

So in other words, it's chronic cast-on-itis like usual around here! :-D


  1. I like the colors you're using for all those gifts. Thanks for sharing the Etsy shop link. My mother lives cross stitch. Those kits would make a great gift!

  2. The ornament is so cute! I want to do some holiday embroidery, too, but not sure I'll get around to it. And your knitting is looking great!
