Scarves - I love them and wear them:
While I am in Texas I will get more cross stitching done and a prayer shawl. I am working with wool from Japan (expensive) but the wool is thick in some places and thin in others; the wool was donated and we have lots of it - about 25 skeins. I will make it work.
The Orca quilt will be my Christmas quilt.
Don't take anything for granted and hug your family and children as many times as you can.
Talk to you when I get back, I will be going to the children's heart hospital with my granddaughters and will be dropping off, teddy bears, pillow cases and hats for the babies.
