Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Birthday (to me!!), and a tale of 5 Kitties

This is episode 25 and I am so happy to be here. Today is my 55th Birthday and though I think it sucks eggs to be in menopause , I am happy to be here!

In this episode I have re-introduced listeners to my cats and the naughty things they have been doing. I also talk about my Thanksgiving dinner plans and I might put a picture in tomorrow as an edit!!

My stuffing is really good...if I must say so myself! I am also making a pumpkin cheesecake and a gravy-less turkey. All New recipes! I do that all the time....Living on the edge and all!!

Knitting is the same but I did buy some Cashmere5 yarn to make some mittens. I will edit the pictures in later as well...I am charging the battery in the camera. I am tatting like crazy on the ornaments and will put the pictures in for that as well...I just wanted to get this up since the podcast was later than I wanted. I am now in love with my Polwarth Lady and the Stone and am thinking of doing a hat and scarf with it.  I don't really wear hats but I can make exception.

Murray Lincoln's Tree as mentioned...very nice.  I love making golden (or silver) colored ornaments as well. This tree is very beautiful and gives me good ideas.
THE BIG NEWS....a contest!! In the next two weeks via a posted message on iTunes (prefered), here or on podbean will get the winner some yarn (I am buying it new...and probably some Lizbeth tatting thread for the tatter. So...let me hear from you! The drawing will be announced with the December podcast so it will run either 2-3 weeks.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Belated Birthday Wishes! Thanks for the really great podcasts. Life got in the way and so I'm just now caught up on them. Thank you for doing the one on how to begin, supply links, etc. I was flattered that you took my suggestions and created a podcast! I enjoyed it so much! Now if I could just find some time to implement your suggestions.
