WEEK 19 & DAY 4

Hello dear readers.  It is that time of week again to talk about all the crafting that has been happening this week.  

I finished all the Santa Hats for the Grand kids' tree ornaments.

All six of them are completed.  I put jingle bells on the tops.  It was suggestion from my DIL and it worked out perfectly.  So glad I listened to her.  

Once those were completed, I turned my attention to my Rising Tides Scarf.

The marker is where I was last time I showed this to you.  The rows to the left of it is what I have done since then.  It is still a joy to work on too.  If I continue at this pace it should be done in a couple of weeks.

I have not touched my socks this past week so no need to put a photo of them here.

This is also the month I take part in:

This is day #4.  I participated last year and managed to post every day for the entire month of November.  So this is where I will fill you in on life in general.

Hubby has finally started feeling better since his return from Las Vegas.  We both think the stress of the family dynamics is what set him on the road to ickiness.  He went to Mass yesterday and then went out to eat with the family afterwards and did fine.  So glad he is back to normal.

This morning we had a meeting at church to go over the retreat that is happening on the 10th.  We have been participating in this retreat for the past 18 years.  We love doing it and the people love going to it.

This afternoon, we will be going to our son's house for smoked pork loin.  I am making an apple crisp for dessert.  Hopefully they will like it.  I love apple desserts and this time of year, apples are plentiful.

I am still working on the puzzle I set out on Monday.  It is coming along and should be completed sometime next week.  There are plenty more puzzles to work when this one is completed.  I obtained 8 more from our friend we visited Friday night.  

Hope you all are having a grand day.

Until next time..............Happy Crafting!!!!


  1. Those little Santa hats are adorable. And I agree - the bells are a perfect addition. Glad to read your hubby is feeling better. Was the apple crisp a hit? It's one of my favorite desserts. :)

  2. I am having a grand day and I hope you are too. I am glad your hubby is on the mend. Those santa hats are soooooo cute. I can hear the ringing bells and they sound delightful!

  3. I am so glad your hubby is feeling better. You have done a brilliant job with your Christmas hats and all done with plenty of time.

  4. I hope you had a really nice supper with your son. I’ve been busy cleaning apples from half a dozen trees and making various apple treats. Right now my two favourites are these:

    Rustic Apple Tart : https://www.onceuponachef.com/recipes/rustic-french-apple-tart.html#tabreviews

    Apple Walnut Cake - https://www.tastesoflizzyt.com/apple-walnut-cake/#wprm-recipe-container-17348

  5. Those Santa hats are really cute! This apple desert sound delicious - I also like anything with apples, especially with cinamon and hazelnuts. And raisins. And Almonds. Will you conserve the puzzles or will you break them and do them again? I used to work for a jigsaw puzzle company 20 years ago, but I think I never made a big adult puzzle. I only did them as a kid or when my nephews were little.

  6. Your Santa Hats are the cutest! Love the fur trim and the bell. Of course I LOVE your Rising Tides scarf...I say it all the time and so maybe I will need to make one....someday! LOL! I am trying to finish things first.
    Glad Hubby is better! Apple Crisp sounds delicious!

  7. Those hats Marsha are just wonderful and the addition on the little bells, just finish them off completely. I'm glad to hear your hubby is feeling better and I hope the apple desert tasted lovely. I love all things apple flavoured too!

  8. Ooh, smoked pork loin sounds delicious! As well as your apple crisp.
