October 2020 Goals

September was one of the hardest months of my entire life. Losing my Mom, on top of COVID and everything else going on in the world, was just too much for me to handle.

Three Xmas Gifts

Thrift store finds

Bonus Bee

I haven't been posting much on the weekends due to my travel schedule, but I'm making an exception to share this photo.

Day 360: Stash yarn calling me
