The Monday after........

 Well, the kids are gone and they got home safely despite having to refill coolant several times....PTL!  The reason she didn't leave Saturday as planned is because we tried all morning to find a mechanic's shop that was open but nada.  No one would be open until Monday when she needed to be at work.  Thank goodness she was able to make it home alright.

Today, I filled prescriptions and picked up a few groceries as surgery is Wednesday and checkup Thursday.  I didn't want to have to go out if I didn't have to.  I did some laundry and got the garbage out.

I'm taking Tinna's Beginners guide to Mosaic Crochet.  I took #1 where I learned Apache Tears, and #2 is how to read charts.   I made a far so good.  I'm making one as a mug rug in Iowa Hawkeye colors for my SIL for Christmas.

I got treasures in the mail today...yarn for future projects.........

and my materials for the December 6th SAL for Aunt Sally's Sewing Box....

and of course the last Advent gift for my daughter arrived should have been here much sooner so now I will have to mail it.

I hope you had a good was about 60 today and nice.  There are still leaves coming down.  

Happy Trails!!!

Tinna really makes mosaic crochet easy to understand. So glad your family made it home safe. Those yarn colors are very cheerful. Good luck with this week's surgery.

That's a beautiful mosaic crochet sample and a mug rug will be a great gift for your SIL. Too bad the Hawkeyes lost last week. I was rooting for them against Nebraska so as you can imagine, I wasn't very popular! :-) But hey, I was born and raised in Iowa and you can't take Iowa out of the girl! Ha!
You've got some beautiful yarn there Sam. I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with it.
I'm glad your kids made it home okay. Our weather has been good so far but is supposed to change in the middle of the night tonight. And snow & ice tomorrow. Yuck! Our kids are here for two more nights and I'm already getting sad thinking of them flying back to London.
I'll be praying for you and your surgery. Take care and let us know how you are as soon as you can my dear Sam.
Blessings and love,
