An Update

 Hello!  I've not fallen off the face of the earth.  Though for us, like everyone, 2020 has been a year of challenges.  We are still working through them.  

On a positive note, I've made a few cards and am still knitting.  I haven't been sewing or scrapbooking though I have many projects planned.  I've bought fabric to make window treatments.  For 16 years starting in the late 1990's, I had my own business making treatments for others.  A couple of weeks ago I took down the heavy, complex treatments I had in my dining room and living room to make way for the painter - who, fingers crossed, will arrive this week.  New flooring was installed this week and we got a new set of French doors as the old ones were like an open refrigerator door in winter.  These are sealed tight.  They need some window treatments and will get them in time.  First, I need to make valances for the master bath and unlined draperies for the living room.  

I've started my Christmas cards which means, I've made 2 of about 25 so far and haven't started my mother's at all.  I'm trying to forget that day after tomorrow is November!

So many projects on top of various family medical issues and of course all the virus precautions and extra cooking.  We've tried quite a few restaurant's takeout choices and most just aren't for us.  

I have done a little baking this year, too, though not nearly as much as I hear the rest of the world is doing.

If you are interested in what I'm up to, I do still post to Instagram occasionally as it is just easy to do.

Hopefully I will get back to videos once the house is back together.  I don't think making plans this year is a good idea so I'll just say that I'd like to make videos again.

I hope all my readers have a very happy holiday season!  If you are in the US and haven't voted, please do.  Make your voice heard.  If you are undecided and fed up with all of the presidental campaign, remember that there are many down ballot races that need your attention, too.  Most decisions that truly affect us are made at the state and local level.

If it all gets too much, just look out at the sky at the full moon tomorrow.  Let nature bring you peace.

  1. Great to see a blog post Lisa ... this year has been really crazy. I'm not American but I would second your advice to people to vote ... the US is such a big influence around the world
