a new house (photos next week)

My new hat. We were driving back from signing all the house papers! And ran across this huge red and white sign -- Reindeers and Red Ribbons Holiday Craft Show (or similar words -- with a bright red reindeer wearing a big red ribbon). We stopped, for a bit of a visual change. A *wide* variety of crafts represented. I bought this great hat - it's acrylic (I know, yarn snob), but I love the colours and the bulky, elfy shape of it. Love it!

Also, this wise owl stuffie.

Also picked up a lot of flyers for arts and crafts shows in the area. Gotta find places to get out and sell my work too. And trades this season. If you make stuff, let me know if you are interested in trades.

A block, maybe two, from our new house. (Still have the inspections and stuff to go through in the next week). It is certainly a wild and busy time, full of excitement (and stress), we fall into bed each night hoping for a deep, restful, restorative sleep -- missing it because we are so full of questions, fears, stresses and creative ideas for all that is happening in our lives. And yet we are thrilled with all the journeys we are on.

Baaa!!! You just left me a message yesterday that you put an offer in, and now you have a new house?! Does that mean your offer was accepted? I can't wait to see pictures and hear all about it!

Will call soon, busy tonight

So exciting! Write and tell me your new email please. Also, cordeliaknits' cousin Julie who is a children's book writer is in Seattle Nov. 8, at a bookstore in NE Seattle.
Oh. And why can I leave comments on everybody else's Blogger using Firefox, but with yours, I have to use IE, because the window won't become big? Is a puzzlement.
