Hm, I've never photographed a work-in-progress before. Could be interesting!

The colors are semi-Christmassy. The greens are on the "leafy" side, and the reds aren't really reds: one is a mild orange-pink (sort of salmony), and the other is a strong orange-pink. Some other time I may buy more yarn and make one in truer Christmas colors.



Thanks! We went to D'Angelos for lunch, and next we're going to run some 16mm film downstairs, some new acquisitions from eBay. A cartoon, a couple of Soundies, a couple serial chapters, and "When Comedy Was King" (a compilation of excerpts from silent comedies: Chaplin, Keaton, Laurel & Hardy, Billy Bevan, Edgar Kennedy, etc.). Should be a fun "matinee"!


I really like that movie compilation. It has so many of the greats ! xo

The cats like playing on them, though, so I guess they are good for something.

Have a most MERRY day and be safe!!!
Have a wonderful Saturday afternoon and evening, Meceka - Maybe I will see you later at the Skillet ! xo

Instead of going to Louisville or Detroit, I convinced all of you to just fly here to Indianapolis. That way we were in between Santa Claus, Indiana and Bronners. Then Instead of renting hotel rooms, all of you stayed here at my apartment building since all of my neighbors have spare bedrooms and air mattresses. It was like a giant sleep over that involved setting up a TV in the yard for Christmas movies and Caroling in the middle of summer. Then we went out and rented a couple of passenger vans and made an overnight trip to Santa Claus, IN. Then we came back here for a few days show I could show you around town. Then we made another overnight trip up to Bronner's and camped out in tents in Meceka's front yard. It was a blast and a little weird. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
Hahaha!! That's an awesome dream!!

It is snowing here ! I don't know where this sudden winter spell has come from especially as this week has been very much spring *puzzling*
I love the snow but I am ready for Spring now. My mom is visiting from abroad so I am hoping the bad weather doesn't impact on her trip - fingers crossed.

Okay well have a great weekend everybody !
Enjoy the visit with your mom!
