Crafting with Karin

 Spooky is actually sitting on the pet bed that I made this week.  I was beginning to wonder.  I did not spend much time on it.  I felt bad because the floors are really cold and there is no carpeting  except in the second and third bedroom.  I have been reduced to wearing socks and slippers just trying to keep my feet warm this winter.
Today was learn to make socks at the senior center.  I have always wanted to learn to do this.  I didn't know I was going to be using such tiny needles.  Julie taught several of us today and cheered us on.  I may end up with only one sock.  And as my girls said-you can buy socks at the dollar store.  These will be really soft if I get them made.

Laurie called me a "Golden Girl".  I have decided that I am a cross between Rose and Dorothy.  I love hanging out with all my "girls".  I realized today that I have to get cracking on the preparation for the workshop that is happening the week after next.  I am now at the point of "what was I thinking when I signed up for this one"?  This weekend: trace the patterns on freezer paper.  Also scavenge in the sewing room for fat quarters required for the workshop. 

Tomorrow is block of the week.  I hope it is better than last week's!

It was good to see Pat vertical today.  Glad she is on the mend...although I did have to report my progress (or lack of progress) on Comfort and Joy.  I better have some more done by next week's Thimbles
