Here is a place where you can enjoy listening (reading) about all my adventures as a lefty in a righty world. It is not easy to do this at times but I have managed to do it for over 60 years. Crafting is probably the hardest thing to do as a lefty since all directions are printed for righties. I have managed to adjust and will be more than happy to share my crafts with you thru pictures and writings. Enjoy!
This week I worked solely on the baby sweater. It needs to be completed and delivered to the church by the 11th of December.
It is coming along nicely. I only have a couple more inches of body to do and then move on to sleeve island. Then the matching hat and ta da, I will be done. I am on the lookout for adorable buttons for it.
My week has been filled with getting things ready for Christmas baking and decorating. Throw in Thanksgiving on Thursday and Doggy Dental cleaning with extractions on Friday and my Week was pretty full.
Yes, Enrique needed his teeth cleaned and in the process had to have 7 extractions. There were more they think will need to be removed next year during his dental but did not want to overload his poor little body with too much trauma at once. He is actually doing quite well and is pretty much back to his old mischievous ways. He will be on soft foods for 2 weeks. After his recheck he should be able to go back on his kibble.
We also took Luna in to meet her new Vet. Being 16 we were getting concerned about some changes we had seen in her. The vet thought for being 16 she was doing pretty darn good. Other than her hearing is almost all gone and her vision has decreased she is healthy. She does have some beginning signs of Doggy Dementia too.
I made my holiday baking list and got all the supplies for it. Last night I backed my famous boozy fruitcake. I know, most people make fun of fruitcakes. Mine is made 4 weeks before it is to be served and each week it gets a bit of soaking with spiced rum. By the time it is ready to serve, it is moist and really flavorful. It will get its first 'drink' today.
Today, I will be making my grandmothers oatmeal cookies. I have never made them before and hubby loves oatmeal cookies. They will bring back some lovely memories for me as well as make hubby happy.
So, that was my week. This coming week will be filled with decorating (although hubby does have the outside done) and more baking and cooking. My infamous chex party mix is next on the list of things to make.
Until Next Time........................Happy Crafting!!!!!
