Walks and pearls.

I had such a nice weekend, the kind that gets you both rested and exited. We all went to our moms and just hung out together, we took a lot of walks with the dog, the kids and the horses. We went out late and we went out early. The best way to start ones day have to be to take a cold walk with a totally over the top exited dog. I also played with my moms horse, I have always been scared of horses so her smallest one realy suits me, he`s small enough to be a dog. I also brought some felt and pearls and stuff so we also sat in the kitchen for hours making hearts for Christmas, it was wonderful. I bought the three packs of pearls last week, these will keep me happy for a long time, so Christmasy.

Done at last.

I`m done. Oh that feels so nice, it took me a while this one but I love it, of course. I wasen`t sure about the gray but I think it turned out nicely.
Now I`m looking forward to some Christmas projects, it`s getting close now and I never have time to do all the things I want so I better get going. First I need to finish the two quilts I`m making for my kids, I am so going to love tucking them in at night when they have there very own quilt, they are going to love it to, I know. And after that, who knows, I`ll just let the Christmas spirit take me and run with it. I so love Christmas.

I need to talk about these two books as well, I am so deeply in love with them, I finished reading them a couple of months ago but I can`t bare to move them from the table by my bed, I love them to much. They are both about Frank McCourt, the author, and his childhood in Ireland and America, it was poor and mostly horrible but this little boy sort of went along with it and found happiness and strength as he went along. The books are the sort that make you think and be happy for months, maybe years I don`t know yet. They bring perspective. The best kind.

Finaly some quilting.

I`ve been so busy with work the last couple of weeks and after all the cooking and cleaning and all that crap that needs to be done all the time I haven`t had time to just sew in so long. This weekend I`m planing to finish my latest quilt though and it`s so much fun, it`s just such a good way to spend a weekend.
