Thursday's come so quickly and only remind me of Friday's which arrive much too quickly each week!  The sun is just peeking over the taller trees and lighting the tops of the Long Leafed Pines with a lovely fall colored glow.  The reflection on the Lake is perfect and deep as the swans have not visited yet this morn.  Little floats of Autum's leaves lay perfectly still sprinkled here and there on the water and makes me want to paint.

When we were at the craft show, a friend stopped by and admired our dog face magnets.  She then told us she needed some wooden camels for a Sunday School Class she teaches.  She wanted the children to be able to handle each animal from the Creche when telling of Christ's Birth.  So my husband made her a dozen the very next day!  We delivered them at her work-place along with a crocheted baby afghan I made for her first time Granddaughter!  We have not heard back from her as yet but cannot wait to hear her reaction when she sees the camels-ha!  They are so precious, all softly rounded to fit in little hands.  My hubby always amazes me with his talents.

I have decided to have my first Give-A-Way!
Yes, tis true, tis true!  "That Dorky Homemade Look" is a delightful little book written for quilters and is sure to make you smile.  A 3-cloth bundle of my crocheted dishcloths and a few other little goodies will be added.  Drawing will be held Sunday November 8, 2009.  This is how you can enter:

Those camels are very adorable...your husband is talented! Hope the children will enjoy them. I'm a crocheter and am crocheting a Manger this year. Hope it will turn out as prety as the pattern photo ;-)

Have a blessed day!
