Hello All,

Just a quick post to show what I've done for the December Sketchbook Challenge Holiday Colors.  I didn't really have much time so I used something I had already done to make a Christmas card.

I'm quite fond of this image.

There are many more posts for the challenge on their flickr page and their blog.  I was so admiring a Journal Quilt made by Frieda Oxenham that I went to her blog and got lost in the beauty!
Hello All,

It's been 11 days since I last posted to this blog.  I took a nice trip to see my daughter, son-in-law and new grandbaby.  It was great.

The holiday busyness has crept in too.

Because knitting is a stress relief for me, I've been knitting like crazy on the scarf even though I don't know who will receive it. I sewed up the sides, but I'm thinking I'll just fringe the ends in a mix of the green and brown.  It will be nice.

Yesterday I found a youtube video by Cat Bordhi about knitting a moebius scarf which is what I had in mind for this scarf but obviously didn't accomplish.  Cat Bordhi Moebius video How to Get Started.  She also has a blog where I found a free pattern for a moebius cowl that I want to make.  Cat Bordhi Moebius Lacy Cowl.  

Yesterday and today I've been making holiday treats, fudge, cookies and cupcakes.  I still have shopping and wrapping to do also.  Best get busy!

I'm linking up with Wool on Sundays.

Hope you all have a great holiday!
