Where did this week go? I started the month feeling ahead of the game, but things are getting out of hand very quickly. Turkey day is next week – at least I have the turkey ordered.

This morning I drove out to Clackamas to pick up my new red glasses. I really like them, and I got rave reviews tonight when I saw a bunch of friends. Here is my smiley face.

Tonight we had the opening of our holiday show at Trinity. The crafts are mainly from Palestine. We have friends who were on the Israel trip with us a few years ago. When the husband retired from his medical practice, they started going to Jerusalem for 6 months out of the year where he volunteered in a hospital, working with new doctors. She volunteers with one of the groups that made some of the things we have for sale. I bought this ¬†felted nativity scene which was made by the young people in this group, some of which have Down’s Syndrome.

I love it!!

This afternoon when I was down in the studio, I looked at the organ piece in daylight and decided it was not as bad as I thought. I think the quilting is coming together. Sometimes, we get to close to our work when it is a bit tedious. I just need to get past the tedious part. I will be back at it tomorrow.
