2015 Project 365 – Week Forty-nine

I can’t believe we’re already in December! It’s almost Christmas. Am I ready? Not in the least!
Sunday, November 29th    
We didn’t take very many pictures this week, so on a couple of days you’ll see some that are a little odd. Like this one, of my crazy new pants during my daily walk. I’m pretty sure I’m not ever leaving the house with these on, but they’re really soft & comfy.

Monday, November 30th         
Dr. M saw a cow.

I made a quick little gift for our office party. I love the buttons! Found them at JoAnn Fabrics.

Square #3 of pattern #24. The LAST SQUARE!!! Well, it’s the last square until I figure out what to do about the 4th blanket (the one I’m making for Dr. M and me). As I said last week, I’ve pretty much run out of yarn & it’s discontinued – still available online, but pricey. We’ll see.

Tuesday, December 1st                       
I started piecing together the blanket of many colors.

Wednesday, December 2nd               
We had our first snow of the year. Fortunately it was a bit wimpy.           

Thursday, December 3rd
On Wednesday when I came home from work I realized I was missing one of my earrings. I was sad because I think I’ve had these for 30 years or so. Fortunately when I went to work on Thursday morning the missing earring was in the parking lot, undamaged. So they only had to spend one night apart.               

Friday, December 4th     
It’s pretty much Hawk Central in our part of Ohio these days.

Late Friday evening I FINISHED BLANKET #1!! I used a polka dot border, which you see here. I’ll try to get a good picture of the whole blanket sometime when I figure out how (it’s 80” x 52”).

Saturday, December 5th       
We had freezing fog overnight & woke up to a winter wonderland. So pretty!

I sorted out Blanket #2 & pinned tags on it so I could get started on piecing it together. (Sorry for the even worse than usual iPhone photo - the sun was really bright!)

Our fiber/yarn group from church (Heart & Hands), met at one of our member’s homes today. Mother Lynn blessed the house & we had communion – and then we had a meal together and talked while some of us worked on our projects for a bit. We always have such a good time together.

Hope everyone has a great week!


  1. How fortunate that you found the missing earring in a parking lot. It really is an attractive earring.

  2. I agree with Stephen's comments. And that cow looks less than pleased to have his portrait taken.

  3. Another great week, Bug. Glad you found the earring. Lucky you.

  4. I'm a big fan of "soft and comfy" myself!

    Love all those hawk pictures! I saw an owl sitting on a light pole the other day, just begging to have its picture taken. Sadly, I was driving in traffic at the time. I bet the owl was laughing about that.

    Very lucky finding the earring!

  5. The blankets are coming together great! How lucky that you found that earring. It's amazing that no one else picked it up or ran it over. Love the cow!

  6. The combination of your mittens and you earring story reminds me of a story I heard years ago. As her train was pulling out of the station, a woman saw the mate to her glove on the ground outside her window. Another woman was picking it up. As the train pulled away, she quickly threw her other glove out the window. I love those mittens and the button makes them special. So cute.

    You snow is pretty.

  7. I love the snow, and the freezing fog. I like the house blessing, too. My mother always had a plaque in the kitchen that said, "Bless this mess." Then again, I have a note she made to herself, in her own handwriting. It says, "Being disorganized is not a moral failing." :-)

  8. I want some pants like those! and I would wear them out. glad you found your earring. I thought I had lost my diamond studs again!. I thought I had put them in the box I keep my earrings in and fishing around I couldn't find them. I took everything out and put it all back one earring at a time and they weren't there. 20 minutes later, I looked in the box again and there they were. The Borrowers must have had them. and I love the blue/green/white blanket.


Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!
