Band Wagon

I figured I would jump on the band wagon and make a Halloween doily.

There is a limited market for Halloween doilies so I will be making a few Christmas doilies to put in my eBay store.  I will be taking them to my winter home in Arizona.  They shouldn't get crushed in my luggage but if they do my husband will re-block them.  He does all my blocking because I do not have the patience.
My roses bloomed profusely during the summer.

They are resting now but hopefully they will bloom one more time. 
My fuschia plant lasted the winter covered in the pantry over the winter even though it was -30.  It is twice as big now.
Today is blueberry muffin day.  My husband loves them.  I'll make a few with streusel topping because I like them sweeter.

Bring Them Home

I am so bored with the patterns I have here at my summer home.  When I get to my winter home I'm going to pack up all my patterns and ship them back here.  I may pack up all my yarn, thread and supplies, too.  My father-in-law is 91 and not well so I want to prepare for the future.  (Not that I want him to die)  Shipping all the stuff here will save the trouble and expense of sending everything we own back here since we will have to sell the winter house when the time comes.

On another note:  I have been working slowly on a doily.  I'm using a solid color - cream - to see if that will sell faster than multi-color ones in my eBay store.  Not everyone wants frou-frou doilies.

Have a great day!
