Thursday Trios – Gifts from the Mall

….November 25, 2021

We rarely go to the mall. Even here in Canada there are Black Friday Sales and we will probably avoid going to any malls and big box stores on Friday. When I have gone to the mall in the last two weeks it has been relatively quiet so I wasn’t uncomfortable going there to window shop. I have to admit that a lot of my shopping is still done on-line. Yesterday my husband had to step into the mall because his eye doctor has her office there. After his appointment he couldn’t wait to leave and he was out of there like his hair was on fire.

I, on the other hand, like to window shop and take in the Christmas decorations. Here are a few lovely trios of gifts some of which I could never afford to buy.

Putting Down the Paint Brushes for Knitting Needles

…..Macro Monday, November 22, 2021

I’ve been inspired to start knitting again. Partially because Christmas is coming and I always love to make handmade gifts and partially I needed do something else creative. In knitting, the creative part comes in selecting the wool and designing your own patterns. I’m not revealing the entire project because they are gifts and I don’t want to spoil the surprise for their recipients. Instead, I’ve decided to take close-up shots for Macro Monday.
