Holidays are here!

Christmas is next month?  Who forgot to tell me?!  Actually, it is Thanksgiving this year that has taken me the most by surprise.  Lucky for us though, we’ll be eating turkey with these fun friends this week!

I’ve been busy these past two weeks making some handmade gifts, mostly fun kitchen stuff and some embroidered goods from my mom’s stash of vintage Vogart embroidery transfers.  The back cover tells me they will make washing dishes “almost fun”.  Oh the  life of a 1950’s house wife….

And, the very BEST news of all is that I’m happy to announce that Elisheva has arrived safely into this world – complete with loads of curly dark hair like her daddy (or so I’m told, no photos yet!).  Amanda and Michael are SO  happy she is here and so are we!
