Works in Progress

It has continued to be quiet at In these hills. We've had a lot of company and a lot of work obligations. We have quite a number of projects in progress right now. Due to the many family members now reading this blog, I'll have to just show snippets and reveal the items in January.




Some of the projects involve knives, planes, drills and wood.... hmm. Very mysterious.













This knitting project is copied from a 17th century pattern and that's all I can say....


This knitting project is just about completed after...oh...a year... I'm not fond of knitting in the summer.

And finally, I discovered this needle-felted sleigh in progress. Hels still needs to add Santa, but isn't sure how to do it yet.


Tonight is Martinmas. We're working on a couple of warm sewing projects for charity and we're planning our first evening with no electric lights with a meal adapted from the traditional goose and nouveau beaujolais....chicken and cabernet! Cheers!

It sounds like it's going to be an enjoyable, candlelit evening at your house. That meal sounds ambitious, but I'm sure it will be very good.

We made those Martinmas lanterns that you showed on your blog a while ago...thanks for sharing how to do that, we had fun.

I have a hard time knitting in the summer too! I wish I could share some of the things I've been making, but certain relatives might peek at my blog...
