A Wintery Morning

Happy Monday! We have a wonderful cold, and wintry morning here today. You can tell it is snowing in the mountains as the temps have dropped so much since the sun came up. We had such a nice rainy Sunday.  We burned a fire, first one in the stove this year. It has been a long time since we have had real November weather.

I finally finished Be Ye Thankful, well almost, it needs to be bound. It would make a nice rug for the floor, but I don't think I could put in on the floor. It is a very nice size.

Pattern Spruce Ridge adapted from original by Notforgotton Farms.
When I bought the pattern three years ago, I had just started hooking rugs. It was so overwhelming to me to ever think I could do something this big. Not that it is finished, I can say, " I did it!"

This is going to be a short post today. There are men out in my driveway, jack-hammering and making all kinds of noise. It makes me rather scatter-brained. I just wanted to check in and wish you a lovely week.

Bye for now,

Keep your eyes open to your mercies. The man who forgets to be thankful has fallen asleep in life.

Wow, what a great job you did on that rug Kim and just in time for your Thanksgiving. I'm still binding my grandfather rug.and I'm about half done the binding. At least it makes me sit with my feet up in the evening.

Finally, you're getting some cooler weather and fire in the stove.

I'm laughing because I am wondering what a winters morning in California is like. It's snowing tonight....S.N.O.W.I.N.G

So glad to hear that you are having some actual November weather! I'd be crazy with those jackhammers around! xo Nellie

Debbie said...

Isn't the weather wonderful??! I am loving the cooler temps. Soo nice to snuggle into the blankets at night with just the tip of my nose sticking out that's cold. No heat on in the house yet, but maybe soon. Have a good week! Super busy over here!
