The March

Cue the music!
Folks keep asking me about the "Little Men" in my life.


  The March continues.......

Later this year than in previous years.













  Up the stairs..........

  Up on the ladder.......

   Get in just the right spot......

  Ready to stand at attention for another holiday season!




  I always feel like I'm in slow motion while the world is on fast-forward this time of the year.  Thank goodness the plants have their own calendar.

  My poinsettias came in the house at the end of October and are starting to show their beautiful seasonal color.

  I think they will get pruned this Spring just to see what will happen.  Maybe they won't be so leggy next Christmas.




  The Amaryllis (that I thought I had killed) is sending up shoots.  I don't think the bloom will make it in time for Christmas, but miracles do happen this time of year!










  But, the red velvet cookies are baked and ready to be mailed off to the brothers far away.

The March will continue here on the Ridge as I get presents wrapped and ready for the family get together.

So.....are you marching along this time of year?  Maybe even a little behind....but you just keep chugging along????
  I'd rather be weaving...............
Happy Fiber Fun to YOU!

Shipping is wildly expensive. I spend more on shipping the cookies than I do on making them. Maybe I can get people to like stale cookies and ship them slow and cheap.

Yes, I would rather be getting back into weaving. Even though I am slowly moving forward, my mind is spinning fast with ideas on weaving. It will just have to wait till after the hoidays. Then the big decision on which idea to start first. Marching forward. Love those little men.

I remember sampling your goodies last year, I think I need to come see the little men marching up your stairs! ;)

Maybe they were just waiting until it got cold enough?
