Busy, busy, busy!

Good morning!  I can't believe that this is my 3rd full week of retirement.  I can tell you I've been so super busy - and unfortunate not with my crafting.

We have a rental home that had been leased for five years and decided it is time to sell it.  We have been so very fortunate to have great tenants, but since they had to move on the other side of town due to his job - the opportunity has come to get it ready for the market.  So, these past few weeks has been dedicated getting the old house ready.

I did get a chance to work on a Santa wool piece - pattern from Cotton Tales North Woods Santa.  I'm not sure if it will turn out to be a pillow or a wall hanging.  I'm finishing a second one so I might just make one of each.

I'm also working on two dolls - one for my daughter's friend and one for Etsy.  Hopefully, now that the house is already listed, I can now concentrate on my crafts.  That Nov show is creeping up!

I still enjoy reading all your blogs when the opportunity comes up - until later - take care.



  1. I'm like you....retired but busier than ever! Love your Santa and I can't wait to see your new Annie dolls! Have a good weekend! Don't work too hard! heehee!

  2. It must be so nice to be retired!!! I love your wool Santa, wool is one of my favorites items to work with. Enjoy your retirement and don't work too hard!

  4. I know what you mean, Pat. Busy is life after retirement... When I saw your "santa pic" I wasn't surprised a bit. After all, you are always a little ahead of the game. Take care!!! Vicki
