Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye
November 3rd, 2010 by Annette


Tomorrow I’m off to Houston for a few days, but thought I might post a few bits before I go…

A couple more Halloween packages arrived.

Erin’s 23rd day:

What it contained:

  • Snap bag
  • Kylie bookmark
  • Small finished box (painted and lined)
  • Skeleton
  • Stamp/pencil/candy (not shown)

Mary Jane’s 25th day:

What it contained:

  • Patch pincushion
  • Braided floss tag
  • Bookmark
  • Costumed rubber duck
  • Stamp/pencil/candy (not shown)

Planning for next year has already begun.

The first official tease:

Progress on the Bernat Crochet-Along:

Clue 6 squares:

A couple more Clue 5 squares underneath.  I still have a few (::cough:: 8 ::cough::) left to do on that one.

New glasses ordered today!

  • It’s been two years since I’ve had new glasses
  • My frames are from Juicy Couture.
  • That took me a little bit to get over, I admit.  I’m a little old to be “Juicy”
  • They have a bit of retro cat-eye-shape. 
  • I wish I’d thought to snap a pic.  🙁
  • I also ordered prescription sunglasses…. a first for me!
  • Ray-ban Wayfarer-style.  White with a way cool print.
  • Sadly, I also failed to think of “take a picture” for them as well.
  • These will be the last glasses for awhile….progressives are pricey!

Take care and I’ll see you after I get home on Sunday!

    I hear you about the glasses! I got new ones this summer and DH asked why. My answer: I’ve looked at the same ones every day for 3 years. It’s about time.

  2. love the tree….enjoy the packages

  3. Your afghan squares are looking so good! Your crochet is so neat, and I love the colours you have chosen!

  4. I went and Googled. I think I found the pair of glasses you’re talking about. Very very cute. And I myself am in the market for new frames, and was considering an almost cat eye…

    See you tomorrow!

  5. Have fun on your trip!

  6. LOL You’re never too old to be ‘Juicy.” My mom is 70 and she’s a “Juicy” rep for Louisiana 🙂

  7. Enjoy your trip!! Have fun 😀

  8. Looking forward to seeing you in your new glasses! Thanks again for making October so much fun!

  9. Love your latest crocheted squares, the colour choice is gorgeous. Great Halloween parcels too, but you do know that you’ve now forced me to trawl Ebay to hunt down one of those Halloween duckies!! haha 😛
