October to December 2011

Wow, we are officially wrapping up 2011.  Doesn't seem possible, does it?  I want to take a second to thank all of my fabulous followers and those of you who have just stumbled by today.  I never would have dreamed that blogging could be so amazingly rewarding.

I am grateful for this supportive, intelligent, compassionate bunch of bloggy gals every single day. Thanks for being so awesome.  Okay, enough mushy stuff - on with the show.

OCTOBER

By this time, I had developed a full out love of crocheting.  These bookmarks were a hit and ended up being part of several Christmas gifts.

Mmmm,...some yummy acorn squash rings.  As easy as they are tasty.

NOVEMBER

Another crochet project.  This scarf was a Christmas gift for the girl up the street.

I wrote a 50,000-word first draft of a novel.






This is one of my favourite (and super easy) bracelets.

More food.  This puff pastry tart was so delicious that we had to have it again the next week.

Zucchini-Caramelized Onion Tart
Okay, just one more food.  Carrot soup.  I was especially happy with the presentation on this little baby.

DECEMBER

I made this felt mitten ornament for the birthday bash giveaway over at One Artsy Mama.

I tried my hand at spool knitting which I now totally love, thanks to Tamara at Etcetorize.

I cannot believe that this is the end of 2011.  Thank you all so much for visiting me and keeping me company over here.  This year has been fabulous and it wouldn't have been that way entirely without you.

I am so looking forward to an even better 2012 with you.

I remember the squash rings...I still think they look divine. What's this about a novel? I am blown away and impressed by that. What an accomplishment. 2011 was wonderful but I am sure 2012 will be even better. Happy New Year!

You have been really busy this year. And what is this about writing a 50,000 word first draft of a novel. I like the way you slipped that in between the bookmark and the braclet, both of which I liked but I don't think took as time or commitment as writing a novel.
Can't wait to hear more about it.
