If this is not the most beautiful thing you've ever seen, that's ok...but it ranks WAY up there on MY scale.  It has actually been finished for a couple of weeks, I just have been too busy to post.  It's been not too cold here during the day, but the nights they do get chilly so we have had the stove lit a few times.  Now all that remains is to get the end of the house put back together!  We were delayed by having to fix the leaking fuel lines in Preston's truck, that sucked up several days.  Always something.

And look, I have a window!!  Again, might not seem like such a big deal, but that is the corner where my desk is and it faces east.  Imagine how dark that corner was with no windows in it.  Our house was pretty cave-like, not a whole lot of natural light got in.  Till now!  Just have to frame it in, but that can wait.  Got to get the outside finished.

In addition to all my other projects, I've been crocheting a lot.  I have quite a bit of trouble reading crochet instructions, but as it turns out there are lots and lots of tutorials on YouTube and that's what I need; to be shown.  I already knew how to crochet, but only in two dimensions.  Now I can make these neat fingerless gloves and I'm trying to figure out how to make a hat.  Because there must have been five extra minutes in my day when I wasn't doing anything else!!  These sold within an hour of my listing them in my Etsy store so that's encouraging.  I think that must be the fastest sale I've ever made.

Time to get out the Christmas stuff I finished off during the year and get that listed, too.  Yes I realize it's rushing the season, which I hate, but I see by my Etsy shop stats that people are already looking for tree skirts and as I usually wait till the last minute to do everything, I don't want to miss the boat.
