What a wonderful time to pull out those projects on a rainy day and try to remember where you were 6 months ago!!! Hopefully all the instructions are intact and you have all the yarn at hand as there is rarely the very same one still available after all this time! Now that the wind is up and the temperature is down I am looking for that wool hat I made last year. Maybe I will tweek it a little...add some ear flaps and I-cord ties? Maybe add some mittens or socks? Just in time yarn construction!
Halloween is over...and all those little pumpkin hats have been made. Don't put them away 'cause Thanksgiving is just a short time away. If you haven't started some things for Christmas, there is still time. In fact there are some ornaments and gift decorations that take a small amount of time and effort. Look back to our blogs last December for on-line ideas.
If you have some energy to spare for the Deming Library, we always like to put in a plug for the efforts of the Friends of the Deming Library to raise money for the support of our beautiful building. Currently there is a lovely, large shawl on display, made by our loyal Good Yarns participants (see the picture). It is being sold by silent bids and is hanging at the Deming Library entrance. The bidding ends at the end of November. Starting in December, bring in your donated crafts for the Craft Fair. Last year this netted nearly $1,000 for the Friends of the Deming Library. Hats and ornaments, cards and books, paintings and candles...so be creative with your creations.
Last but not least, there is the annual Holiday Tea on Saturday, December 10, with refreshments and entertainment all afternoon. It is a lovely afternoon for family and children. See announcements for event times.
Relax and have fun this winter with the color, the snow, the excitement of children and lots of cheerful food. Whether you celebrate traditional holidays or not, there is much to see and do in Whatcom County.
