November plus 1, actually.  Needed a breather after Halloween, which was really terrific this year...a recap later this week.  Out with the old...

and in with the new.

A few crafty goals for the month:

  • some kind of handmade Thanksgiving decoration (one for me, one for Mom, I hope!)
  • Theo's blanket (lots of nighttime TV garter stitch in my future...)
  • Theo's baptism handkerchief
  • project for tutorial (plus the tutorial!)
  • this wreath (my first mention in a blog post...kind of exciting for me!--the idea originally came from here--I hope there are still some pretty leaves left!)
  • finish Small Fox swap ornaments
  • Christmas quilt (finish top, piece backing, baste, bind, quilt)--I really want to be cuddled up under this thing come December 3rd (Thursday is an important TV night at our house)
  • Whatever the first block ends up being for this cool project--check it out!
  • Christmas cards designed, drafted, to printer, ready for assembly (my goal mail date is December 10)
  • Alex's (handmade--more on that later) Christmas gift--designed & supplies bought
  • Knit a tiny Santa hat--for the turkey!
We'll see if that's doable.  My husband is probably starting to sweat (I tend to get a little crazy this time of year), but it's nice to have it all in one spot.  Off to cut some ornament felt!
