The Days That Got Away

On Saturday a friend and I made plans to meet for coffee and then go to a holiday bazaar.
The coffee plans worked out.
But when we got to the venue for the bazaar, we realized we were a day late.  Oops!
 Since weekends are the only time Sam and I are able to walk,
we headed out Saturday afternoon on yet another path.
Did you ever think you'd see a reindeer in Kuwait?
Weather has been all over the place the past several days.
From warm and muggy, to gray, cloudy and sunny.
All in the same day.

There has been cooking (gozleme) and a little crafting.
 My rug was sheared at Sunday night's class.
 What a difference it made.  So exciting to see the pattern emerge.
 And last night was Zack's holiday band concert.
Busy, busy days indeed!

Hope all is well in your corner of the world.

Hi Tammy...Looks like you are busy at this time of year, too! Sounds like fun times.

Thanks for your visits and comments. Right now Christmas dollhouse, part 2, is posted! Susan

Hi Tammy,
Looks like much enjoyment! :)

Your rug is coming along wonderfully and you have so much talent.

As for weather, we're coming close to breaking a record for most days without snow coming into Winter. We've had none much to my dismay :( The weather has been mild for these parts and mostly just sunny days. I would love a great snowstorm right around Christmas but they're saying the chances of that happening are slim to nothing. Still have green plants in the yard and flowers as I have had for the past many years. Natural climate change for sure.

Love, Linda

Take care now.

Hi Tammy, your rug looks like a fun project and is coming along beautifully. The gozleme, sounds good, I'm guessing the yeast in the yogurt makes it rise. Our weather has been inconsistent here as well. Hoping for snow. Take care, Heather

Looks and sounds like it is a busy, yet fulfilling time. Your rug looks amazing! I loved going to hear the band play when my son was in school. Happy memories.

Busy times but it all looks like good fun, Tammy!
I wanted to tell you that I've tried the crochet stars that you shared... the first one I made came out with 5 and 1/2 points, so I tried it again and it came out right. I'm going to buy some different yarn & make the garland! :)
Have a happy one,
Zuzu

I am SUPER impressed with your rug.....the colors and the pattern you choose are so pretty and what a difference the 'haircut' made! WOW

Coffee with a friend is the best. Love the logo on the tray!

Busy time of year for everyone with kids. I remember that time. It was amazing I got out Christmas cards!

Have a slow week, girl.

Dear Tammy
I can imagine how excited you were seeing the reindeer all hitched ready for his journey - made you feel at home?!
Your little crochet Christmas tree bag is very sweet to fill with treats.
We have a rug maker in our midst now - it looks wonderful and you must be feeling tickled pink!
Joyeux Noël

It gets worse the older you get! I'm always getting appointments and dates wrong!!! The reindeer looks very comfortable there and I think your rug is coming along beautifully. Diane

Your rug is looking good, I made a few in my time but not very detailed too hard.
The weather in Kuwait sounds like the weather in Sydney at the moment we have hot, cold and rain all on the same day only thing missing is snow and that never happens here.

You do sound busy and it always seems to be like this nearing Christmas.
Love the rug and colours, it is coming along beautifully.
You must have been proud and happy to go along to hear Zack play in the concert.

Happy day

Dearest Tammy,
You are doing such a variety of things... interesting and as a bonus you spot a reindeer!
Great recipe that you shared; love anything with spinach!
Indeed, the rug looks great after having had that beauty treatment.
Enjoy whatever you are doing and especially those walks together.
Hugs,
Mariette

Dearest Tammy,
Forgot to comment on Zack's performance; I did spot him... Made you feel proud I bet.
Hugs,

Tammy's in Love said...

Snowmageddon in Minnesota! We had 12" on Sunday and the trees are loaded with frosting. It's like looking at pictures on a calendar page of DECEMBER! Gorgeous...then again, palm trees look kinda nice too!

Hindustanka said...

Hi Tammy,
You have so much going on right now! What a beautiful rug that is appearing! I love the reindeer in the photo - wouldn't he be cute with some bells around his neck?! Enjoy your cooking and crafting projects - you always manage to get so much done!
Warmly,
Sharon

Mary said...

Your rug is gorgeous - such a difference once sheared and the pattern and colors show how vibrant it will be!

Yes busy days - but thanks for sharing great pics of your area and especially the band concert. I'm attending my granddaughter's choral concerts - so many at this time of year, but the kids love to get support and encouragement.

Will be off home soon - forgive lack of comments but I'll try to keep up.

Happiest of holidays dear Tammy.

OH my, Tammy, the rug is looking fantastic!!! I enjoyed walking along with you through your photos. Too bad you missed the bazaar. :(

Sharon said...

Sounds like you are very busy but having fun. Your rug is gorgeous. You are one talented gal that's for sure.

kimmie said...

Your rug is beautiful!!
but I have to say that I relish your view of the water - that aqua blue just goes on forever. Do people go swimming at all? Or would that be strange?

Yesteryear Embroideries said...

The rug is looking so pretty! I think this time of year every one is finding themselves busy! Have a great weekend!

val said...
