Until Christine gets here..I thought I'd better start it...

Join us here in the Scumble. Discuss your every day lives, complaints and accomplishments. Art in progress or anything else you want to talk about.

I've just returned from 5 weeks in NY - just outside the city, staying with my brother and sister-in-law...great fun had by all. I finally got to see a Broadway show, as well as a trip to Liberty Island, having done the rest of the usual tourist attractions when my husband was alive. The long break was just what I needed and whilst I was away, I had my house decorated...bedroom, sitting-room study and kitchen, (the other rooms were done 2 years ago)...so got back to a clean and freshly painted house...with no mess...just a lingering smell of paint...Which I understand and can tolerate.:lol:
My greatest achievement though was treating myself to the Daniel Green Portrait box of Great Americans!! RESULT!! We can't get them in the UK...and I've heard so much about them here...now I will have to use them!!:wave:

Looks like you were all too busy to chat about what was going on in November....so I've just changed the title to December! I know you'll be busy Christmas shopping, maybe baking too....as I am! Though I have to admit to doing quite a bit online...instead of trudging around the shops. Though I do still shop locally, I avoid the big stores!
Had fun making this...with help from my grandaughter Erin!

This was our first attempt...we hope that the next one will be easier...as I'll have 3 helpers....my great grandchildren...but not baby Saffon, number 4!
