A Good Morning

     It's a beautiful sunny day here.  A bit chilly but we have a fire going and it's comfy and cozy inside.  Eye doctor appointment went very well.  Even on the steroids for ITP, the cataracts haven't changed at all.  A real good thing!
     I imagine most of you are not only decorating but out shopping and looking for special gifts for the special people in your lives.  I have a long way to get everything covered and gift cards look really great at this point! Christmas spirit I have, but the strength isn't there.  I'm doing well though.

     I have been doing some stitching each and every day.  Most of the time it's cross stitching which is my favorite,  Working on the SAL, "I Am A Stitcher".  So far........

     I've been knitting up some smaller cloths also, so we can use them for facecloths.  Bill used one of the bigger ones a few days ago and loved it, so why not a few smaller? So far again............


These are fun to work up.  They're quick and easy and there are so many different color combinations you can use.  Solids as well.  A couple of these with a little bar of pretty soap would be perfect for a little gift.
     I must show you my beautiful Cactus this year.  This was given to me by a dear friend a couple of years ago.  It was a plant started from her mom's  plant actually.  I haven't ever had good luck with these plants.  Never killed one to this day, but they would just sit there and be green year after year. Never get an inch taller and never bloom.  Well, it must be dear Miss Getty looking down on her plant because it has bloomed both years and has grown so well.  Thank you Miss Getty.  Miss you lots.

     Well, I must let you go for now.  Thank you to all who leave comments.  Thank you for sticking with me.  Until next time, stay warm and safe, and....Don't forget to "feel the colors".
