Have you checked out bloggers posts listing the things that bring them joy that link up on LeeAnna’s blog Not Afraid of Color? It’s always fun to head over there and see what likes they are sharing this week.
As I’m sure you all know, I love quilting and playing with fabric. This week I finished a commission; a duvet cover made from a quilt top I had in my To Be Quilted Pile (better than calling them UFO’s, right?!?)
I also enjoy knitting. Last spring I made myself a beautiful shawl which my daughter borrowed (and took home 😉). With having so much time lately waiting for DH to have tests and appointments I thought I needed to keep some handwork on hand. Today I finished my shawl. I was happy to have enough of the same wool I had used last year to make another one. Is there anything better or warmer than a lovely wool shawl?
In between knitting, quilting and sitting in the car waiting for DH, I also enjoy baking and cooking. I had decided to make strudel, filled with apples, cinnamon, raisins and pecans. DH told me it smelled wonderful. I like thinking that eventually my sense of smell will come back. We did have a slice for desert and I think I could taste the cinnamon. 🤤
I love knowing that my son made it home to their place in Mexico from Saudi Arabia in time to surprise his wife and kids. My DIL says he was her birthday present on the 22nd. This was as he was walking up to them to say “Surprise!” Can you believe the blonde with her back to the camera is my 12 1/2 year old granddaughter? She is just a smidgeon shorter than her 5’8” mother now. 😲 I’m glad to know they now have a month together before he returns to work.
I’d also like to share that one of my favourite likes is YOU. Thank you for sharing your time with me. I love reading your comments.
Merry Christmas to each and every one of you. If you are staying home in your bubble enjoy your family time via social media. I will be. 🤶🏻 Carol
