Already???

It's November already...can you believe it?

I was going to close the CONTEST this morning (in fact, I did for a short period) and announce the winner but since I said Nov 1st was the deadline...I'll leave it open until midnight tonight. I'm having so much fun with this, and you all have blown me away by the #'s of comments I've received, 90 can you believe it? I can't!. For those new to my blog, I hope you find it entertaining enough to come back...I love meeting new friends~~especially those I have a hobby in common with!

Thanks for all the good wishes, prayers and positive thoughts about my BIL. He came through quadruple bypass surgery yesterday just fine...but there's a long road of recovery ahead of him along with some "lifestyle" changes. He told the Dr. he officially quit smoking on Monday, the day he was admitted to ICU!

DD is getting better...meds are helping!

I have lots of knitting progress to show, stay tuned, but that darn vest of my dad's is slow going...I don't feel as though I've gotten very far with it. Since his B-day is in March maybe it will be a B-day present instead of a Christmas present?!?!

Gotta Run....

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!!

So glad your BIL came through the surgery fine. Lifestyle changes are always so tough, but they do work. My FIL is going through something similar right now.

I'm glad BIL came through surgery and yes, changes in lifestyle... sheesh... the things we do to stay healthy... like eat good chocolate?
:^) Also glad to hear DD is better.

I always love how if you can't make it in time, planned Christmas gifts become birthday presents. ;) One of the joys of making the gifts.

Happy to hear that BIL and DD are doing better! And I wish BIL the best in keeping with the new lifestyle!
