New Sock Monkey

Here's a new sock monkey I made. Boo thought he should sit next to him. I think he needs a blue knitted stocking cap, but don't have a pattern. (the monkey, not Boo).

I have been wanting to get a package of these for awhile. The bags are so cute with these - there are 8 in the package, so we could each make one :-)

Quilt Show Today

Dad wants a lap quilt for this winter, so I got this packet of flannel fabrics today. I think I will cut out a moose shape and use those on a couple of larger squares and then us this fabric for the remainder.

Fall Vacation to Leavenworth

We're really enjoying our vacation over here in the Cascades. On Friday we spent the day in Leavenworth and bought a few things we really didn't need :-) Great fun. Today we hiked 6.5 miles, about 20% of it uphill. Pretty good for two old people. The weather was very cold today - I had five layers of clothing on, and was just right. There were snow flurries in the air this morning when we started. Aren't the Cascades beautiful?

Overnight Company

We had special company last night - Teri Foster and Nichole Frasch - who are actually in the western part of Montana, but were over close to us and came for the night. Nichole is my cousin's daughter and it was nice to get acquainted.
