Halloween wasn't too bad but we had guests for Thanksgiving so there was a bit of rearranging to accommodate 3 dogs, 2 cats, and 4 adults staying with us for a week. It was a good time and it blew by too quickly! I just love the fact that my kids were so happy to give up their rooms and beds for their grandparents and Aunt and Uncle and camped out upstairs in my studio. And the unconditional love and affection from 5 dogs and 5 cats - simply amazing! Oh and being in the kitchen with my mom, sister, and Danni again - well, it was priceless.
And now with Christmas only 10 days away... well, busy, busy! I haven't made many handmade items as gifts this year... a few of the ladies will be getting some beaded jewelry, but we have done a crazy amount of baking! I like to make things for my family, but the kids are older and its getting harder to do things without them knowing about it. But, their birthdays are coming and I will make them a few things for these special days and they are more likely to enjoy it because it won't be as overwhelming of a time like Christmas can be. I've already got fabric selected and cut out, now I just need time to myself to continue my love-hate relationship with my sewing machine, LOL.
Anyway, I thought I would post pictures of the projects I have completed in the last few weeks. Here we go! This first one is called S.W.A.K. Cuff in an odd-count 3-drop Peyote cuff and I did two versions... one in silver and the other in gold. The silver one is for sale in my shop. And the pattern is available in my second shop, 3PeepsDesignsToo.
