Winter in the air…

Things have been quiet around here lately. There has been a lot going on in my life so blogging has been shifted to the back burner. I have plans for some new tutorials to share but not for a little while. I’m still sewing, of course, and will share photos of completed projects and shop updates as soon as I get a chance. As well as get around to visiting other blogs.

The days are getting shorter and shorter and I can smell winter in the air. So I was surprised to find this sweetgum tree still holding it’s own–and quite beautifully too. (Don’t let the warmth of the photo fool, it was cold!) The end of the year is approaching quickly–I’m not sure where it went. This means the yule season will be upon us soon. I have no ideas about presents–to either make or buy. I’ve been browsing around Etsy quite a bit for inspiration and ideas.
I’m planning a sale in my own shop to kick off the holiday shopping season. So stay tuned.

This is our dog Kippy. She turned 10 on Monday. She looks awfully sad in the photo, but in truth she is just terribly camera shy. I’m not sure if other dogs are like that or not, but she never looks you in the eye. I still have this habit of calling her puppy because, although she’s speckled with gray and not fast as she used to be, she is still so playful and enthusiastic. Though, she is slipping a bit on her guard dog duties. The other night she totally missed the the doe I heard munching on the bushes outside my bedroom window.
