Also, if you haven't already heard the exciting news, Elsie is teaching a six week online class to help you with all those Christmas presents you plan on making this year. The class starts November 10th and slots are limited so grab one while you can!
We're getting ready for kit shipping and family visits this week. The November kit from Red Velvet Kit Club is one of my favorites this year because it is heavy on embellishments. A few vintage items mixed in with the handmade and outdoor-themed paper from Cosmo Cricket make this month's kit uniquely fall-ish.
The weather has turned frigid today and we're expecting to have the first freeze tonight so we've put our flannel sheets on the beds and plan on sleeping in our socks. I like to wonder what life was like before central heating for those of us without fire places. My dad will be proud to know his energy saving habits have infiltrated our minds. We keep the heat at 68 degrees unless we're miserable and otherwise walk around the house with thick socks, house shoes, long sleeves, sweaters and sometimes a scarf. Of course, our drafty old house drops back to 54* as soon as the heat shuts off.
I tell myself its worth a low bill. I tell myself that at least five times a day. Hot coffee helps and when appendages start to turn blue we bump it up to 69*.
