A Fiery Reminder

As I came through our front gate this afternoon I noticed not only the huge burning bush (how had I not previously noticed the burning bush?!?), but the fallen leaves of said bush.

And I thought to myself, "These leaves look amazingly like the colors of the magnolia throw".

That is still on my big loom.

Uh oh.

Not only is this appalling in it's own right, but also a brutal reminder that the two Christmas gifts I wanted to weave on this loom can't possibly be woven without finishing the spring (egad!) throw.

So, how many folks out there have already finished their Christmas fiber gifts? How many haven't yet started?

Just so you know, there are 46 days until Christmas...if you count today and don't open gifts until the 25th.

I have made good progress on Christmas and holidaytime birthdays gifts, but did NOT need the reminder of just how close Christmas is! EEEK!

Umm... One gift is finished, a lace-knit neck wrap of handspun wool and silk. One is finished! That is, except for being blocked, it's finished. Does that count?

The leaves are beautiful! And the dog in front of the bush, sleeping on the leaves is just perfect!

well, I only made one fiber gift this year and it was a one-skeiner.

Yes, how did you NOT notice the burning bush before? Isn't a beautiful shade?
