"A grandma is just an antique little girl"...unknown

I signed up for an online craft workshop with Betz White. Since the weather seems to have stuck on rain lately, I have not felt guilty about holing up in my craft area (a corner of the laundry room) to play. So far, I have made pinecones and a Christmas tree out of felted sweaters, 2 package topper poinsettias, and 2 angel tree ornaments. I need no ornaments, but I can always give them away and I have fun making things.
The crafts are all copy right protected so I cannot sell them. That is a good thing. Based on the time put into each item, I'd have to charge like $300 a piece. They are cute, but not THAT cute, for sure.
Mike noted today that I was outgrowing my space here...taking over the house is how he put it, actually. HA! He of three rooms in the house he has entirely to himself. I have converting the garage to a dedicated craft room on my secret list of home improvements. I spring these on him slowly over time.
I went to the library for a reading of "The Raven" and "The Tell Tale Heart." We are planning a drive down to Rutland (about 60 miles south of here) to see the annual Halloween Parade. It's always a great parade, but we have not been for quite a while. Usually, the only Halloween thing I do is buy some candy bars to give to the trick-or-treaters who have never once come to the door here. But one has to be prepared, right?
