these are my first knitted mittens! not too hard. i made them for the "heart to hands" to send to kids in LOCKPORT, New York. a friend pointed out that coincidence since i missed it. (i live in lockport, LA). i hope to do a red pair and then ship them off this week. check out all the PINK blogs on pink saturday through "how sweet the sound".

these little cupcakes below were inspired by betz white. of course, down in south louisiana it's hard to find lots of wool sweaters to felt so i made do with what i had.
and last but not least, THANKS for giving. to all my friends, family, and anyone who passes on some bit of kindness or a smile. november has always been a nostalgic month for me and it's more so now. my birthday, which i'm glad to be able to celebrate, but it means winter is coming and that's really not my favorite time of year. gloomy days bring me down and i have to work especially hard to stay optimistic about things. my foot hasn't healed yet and that is really frustrating also. anyway-i am grateful for all i have. all the love and family closeness that so many people don't have. i thank God always. happy thanksgiving to you all!!

the weather has been beautiful here-perfect fall! unfortunately, several of us have head colds and the general feeling around here has been sort of lousy. the improve my spirits i, of course, read blogs and i came across this post through greeting arts blog. a beautiful mission to help others and i've been wanting to try to knit mittens (and not too many people here wear them). if i don't succeed i'll just go out and buy some. hopefully i can do it. join me if you can! thanks.
