Paula (The Beauty of Life) asked about water soluble pens in a comment on the last post. I have two kinds. The blue one says water erasable and lasts until water is applied. It works great for drawing designs for the buttons or other embroidery, and lasts until I'm ready to remove it. The second one says water soluble, but it also says disappearing. And it does. Disappear. Too quickly to be of much use for most of my projects.
I've begun (obviously with little enthusiasm) some knitting and crochet projects. I'm not at all certain if they will be completed.
Look at all the junk on my design board behind me. Maybe if I took the time to clean that up...Funny and delightful things I've found on other blogs:
Suesueb's photos of the Christmas plays she and her siblings produced when they were little. Here and here.
Kay's hints for baking, quilter style.
Advent activity with children's books -- each day is a different book with an accompanying activity. Day 9 is The Night Tree with instructions for making wild bird treats. Day 10 is Santa Mouse and a miniature tree garland.
