Holiday Knitting & Crocheting


I've been happily making Christmas ornaments, some of which I'll give away and some I'll keep.

I've had a busy week and haven't had much time to do my crocheting and knitting which just won't do. The next couple of weeks look even busier so I'll have to fit my needlework in wherever and whenever I possibly can! I'm knitting a gift for my DIL, possibly two gifts, (for Christmas) but can't say what they are because sometimes she reads my blog and I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise. I'd like to begin at least one or two other Christmas gifts but I'll have to see if time allows because it's sure flying by. I can't believe it's almost October, for heaven sakes.
at this gorgeous sky! Big old cottony clouds rolling around in a clear blue sky. This is my 'Saturday Sky' on Friday. It is amazing the way the sky changes so much each hour, day by day. I think though, that the sunset skies are my favorite because they seem to have so many colors of the rainbow in them.

I wish you, dear readers, a peaceful, happy,and safe weekend and may God hold you in the palm of his hand today and always.

"I now am wise, I now am true,
Patient, kind, and loving,too,
All things I am, can do, and be
Through Christ the Truth that is in me."

The Christmas ornaments are beautiful! I can't believe is coming up so quickly.

Your sky is gorgeous. We didn't have a single cloud in the sky this morning.

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend and you're always in my prayers.

I like your ornaments; crochet is one thing that I don't do well. I enjoy looking at other people's crochet though :)
My friend suggested you might try this site for a mitten pattern http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/christmas.php
Have a good day!
