Good morning dear friends! It's so good to be awake at dawn again.
I wish my camera had caught just how pink the sky was. Last week, I started a new job - and quit the next day. I won't detail it, suffice it to say it wasn't for me. I don't mind working the afternoon shift, but I'm glad to be back on my early morning schedule.
Nothing much is new in Allie-land. Mum fell a couple of weeks ago, bruised her tailbone, and has had a bad cold - I'm finally getting her out of the house today, I think she needs it!
Anybody else have trouble waiting for Christmas to give gifts? It's why I shop last minute - and apparently my son has the same trouble.
I recently starting using mechanical pencils, bought at the dollar store after my expensive pencil sharpener gave up the ghost. My son had bought me the darker blue pen last year, which I dearly love, it's a vintage Sheaffer. This year, he bought me the matching pencil - well, the color is different, thank goodness for that, otherwise I'd keep picking up the wrong one! Isn't it lovely? It's amazing to me how wonderful it is to use good tools!
My oldest son has a new kitty, another rescue. They're slowly introducing the new one to the family.
Her name is Cookie. I can't wait to meet her. I miss having a kitty - but remembering how heartbroken I was when my Hermione died, I can't do it again.
I'm currently working on January's patterns for the Applique Club. I love working with happy colors in the grey days of winter!
And of course, those grey days make it hard to take pictures, lol! But oh these 30's fabrics cheer me up.
I guess that's all the news worth reporting from here, I hope you all have a lovely Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) - I'm off to buy a turkey breast today. I can't wait. Thanksgiving is my favorite - family, good food, nobody has to buy gifts. LOL!
Be blessed - see you soon!
(Psalms 69:30) "I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving."
