My New Neice

......Reah Hali, arrived on Friday afternoon. Family is at home and doing well.
Now I just have to wait to see her until this weekend!

The blanket?

Huh, not finished. O and I got sick yet again last week so I had to take a break from knitting. Hopefully I'll be able to knit this week and the whole way down to Florida. We'll see... I still have to provide entertainment in the car for a 3 yr old!

Sock Dreams....
Ok, I have loved knee highs and leg warmers since the beginning of time. I stumbled upon this store last year. It's stocked full of socks, leg warmers and arm warmers.
I love knee high socks. I remember as a little girl going into my dads sock drawer and
wearing his socks to school. He wouldn't be surprised to know that I do still own a
few pairs of his old socks.
I do have a love for this shop. I did however make some thigh high leg warmers last year that I adore and some arm warmers for the whole family. But, taking a couple months to make a pair, why not just order a few pairs online and have them delivered right to your door, right?
Now, must. find. money. to buy winter warmers!

The farmers market for the season has come to an end. It was a bitter-sweet moment. Committing your every Saturday morning from May-November is a big deal. I missed out on a many garage/yard sales, hanging with the fam, sleeping in......but really it was so totally worth it. I met so many new friends and usually had a great morning with Luna bread as my neighbor, how could I not have a good morning?! Fresh breads, muffins, sticky buns, oh and the chocolate chip cookies.....to die for....really, so very delicious!
The trees and leaves that morning we just so beautiful......a bright yellow and orange.
Now, just a couple days later, a bright colored leaf is a rarity!

So, fair well dear market until we meet again next May......

Sew~long friends.....
til tomorrow......


  1. Congratulations Auntie! Welcome to the world baby Reah!

    Sorry I wasn't able to come to the last day of the FM, I was busy with my MIL's 60th birthday celebration.

    Here's to enjoying the weekends you'll have to yourself again, until next year!

  2. Hey A,

    Hope you all have a nice visit. Welcome little Reah! I love your pics. It all looks rather bittersweet in the photos too.

    See you when you get back. Hopefully we will all finally kick the crap out of these yucky colds. We have all battled it here too for months, and I am sick.of.being.sick!


  3. ooo, that blanket is looking gorgeous! it will be fun to see it all done!

    and arm warmers - i just may have to try a pair of those . . . they sound nice.

    I can't wait to meet her!

  6. Ansley,

    Where are you songbirdmama? Are you in Flordia still, or where did you have Thanksgiving? I hope you all had a wonderful time together. I love this last picture, wonderful perspective!

    I think the colour was astounding this year, I thought you had to go to Maine to those sorts of reds & golds!

    Made me appreciate the south in a new way.
