Ginger the Mohair Giraffe

The month has quickly slipped by.  I always start decorating for Christmas the first of November and that will be here very soon.  We had our first frost this morning on October 28th.  That is amazing to me.  I remember times when we had frost the first week of September.  The remainder of my flowers were hit and we cleaned them up today.  Only 6 months until we can plant again.   I look forward to next spring and a couple projects Fred and I are already planning.  Our new grandson is growing fast and he is a joy in our lives.  Our first grandson Chase had his 9th birthday last week.  Time has a way of flying by and those 9 years certainly have passed quickly.  He is a handsome young man who loves to play baseball.  We are so proud of him and it will be so much fun to see him at holiday time.  Nothing like grandchildren to fill our hearts with love!  They are blessings from God.  I hope you all enjoy the fall weather.  This is Ginger the Mohair Giraffe on EBay:  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=301003334144

Time Flies!

It has been a while since I have written anything and time sure has a way of flying by us.  I have been more busy than usual and I am not complaining.  We have a new addition to our family, so sweet and amazing!  His name is Nolan Frederick, born last weekend weighing in at 7 lbs. and 4 oz.  He is such a sweetheart!  So much hair and a mix of his dad, mommy and cousin.  Amazes me how you can see different family members in the sweetness of a little one.  Still amazes me that God gives us the miracle of a child.  He does have his dad's feet!  Looking back through photo albums this week remembering the births of my three sons and my grandson Chase was a treat I haven't done for a while.  We are totally amazed with this new little one and cannot get enough of him.  Thank you Mindy and Blake for bringing this little miracle into our lives!  I have been wrangling with a hooded coverlet for him and now tore it apart completely after it was finished except for the edging.  Gauge was perfect but finished it was too large for a new born.  It would not do altering just the hood and I don't think a two year old boy would appreciate a hooded cape.  Back to the grind and quickly making a baby afghan.  I finished Esther and after she sold on EBay is on her way to California.  Hoping to finish up a few things this weekend and on to more bears.  The trees are changing and some have dropped their beautiful leaves.  We have been so blessed with wonderful fall weather.  Yesterday we had some snow flurries and it does make me feel more excited about the holidays coming quickly.  I hope you enjoy life and grab on to it with everything you have!  Love you all!  Esther on EBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300992868854&ssPageName=ADME:L:COSI:US:1123

HAPPY FALL

Happy Fall and Happy October! We have enjoyed beautiful weather for a couple months now. We are so blessed to see the sunshine every day. I have been super busy as usual but I always say I don't do bored. If I don't have something to do I will make something to do. I did finish the cat Hallie Katt and took her to The Boston Road Collection. She was fun to make! I also listed the mohair bear Noelle on EBay and she is on her way to California. My first Christmas bear this year. I am also working on a brown bear this weekend and hope to have her finished soon.  Fred and I made a table for Mindy for her front entry. Dropped the table off to her yesterday. Miss Kitty has been a real help with my wood work and she has the wood set up for two more benches. One for us and the other for Mindy and Blake.  Miss Kitty is such a sweet cat!  I have a shelf cut out for the living room and need to finish that today. When I have a spare minute I have been working on the hooded coverlet for our grand baby who should arrive within the next 3 weeks. I cannot wait to see what it is and hold him or her for the first time. Fred and I still have plans for the roof over the outside basement entry but time is flying by and we might have to wait until spring to start that project. It has been a matter of what I want and what Mr. P. thinks we should build. I am going with a gazebo type roof and he wants a boring hip roof. I love the look of wood and I want to use it wisely. Who will win? If I can dig the holes and put the posts into the ground I will as he says he cannot be done because of rock close to the foundation. He MIGHT be right. We shall see Mr. P. I hope everyone enjoys the month of October and all the sights and sounds of fall. Have a wonderful week!
