This week had to be some of the best November beach weather ever. It was glorious. Kim and Laura were on the deck reading on this afternoon and took this photo of me on the beach. I had the whole beach to myself. I didn't even think I needed a vacation but it turns out that I did and it was wonderful.
I didn't take a sewing machine because it was just easier to pack up crochet projects. If I had stayed longer I would have taken a sewing machine but crochet was much more conducive to chatting.
This is a hat and scarf set for donation. When I finished the Mandala Ombre blanket last week I had one ball of the yarn left. I paired it with white and made a bulky hat and scarf in linen stitch. The scarf is about 5 feet long. This set will keep someone really warm.
I worked on my blue sweater and got it to the point where it's ready for the next step. I need to get the video back up and watch the next step. I think it's adding the center back.
I'm about a third through the second to last ball of yarn for David's blanket. I hope to have this done by Thanksgiving because Mom and I'll visit my brother sometime in early December to go see my beaded ornaments on their tree.
Someone was having a great time on the beach Halloween evening!
This is what I came home to. I cleared this area before I left but it looks like I have a lot more to do. YOu can see the pile on the far side where I put them. A 5 foot stack of leaves will be totally reduced by the time I do this again next year. I actually have 3 areas about this size to deal with. I'm just glad I can use a blower instead of a rake.
This weekend I'll also get started on those Christmas postcards along with a long list of chores.
