“I’m a Santa Helper”

“I’m a Santa Helper”, says my Little Darling, Gina.  She is indeed wearing all of the jingle bells and whistles to get herself noticed by Santa Claus.  Gina even has a tiny present to add to the pile for good little girls and boys.

    Oh Cindy,
    What a sweet little dress on Gina. I love the design you embroidered around her waistline…it’s so pretty! Her little striped stockings are the perfect touch. I also loved the pictures of Talyssa too… I think they were the prettiest pictures of her ever!!!
    I am going to try your sweet potato chili too… George just wanted me to wait till it got a bit cooler… I think we are almost there!
    Blessings, Jeanne

      Good morning, Jeanne. Thanks so much for the compliment on Gina’s new dress. I love sweater dresses and was happy with how this ensemble turned out. Talyssa can take a great picture or a bad picture, probably more bad than great, I’m afraid. I’m having a hard time figuring her out as I’d mentioned over on your blog; maybe I am starting to though… we’ll see.
      I am so happy you are making the chili. I hope you like it, the flavors are perfect for this time of year. Is your husband okay with something meatless? It’s getting much cooler here too, snow coming tonight! I’m not sure I’m ready. It has been around 60 degrees the last few days!

    Your Santa Helper is so cute, she rates an A+! Coming from a retired teacher.
    Love the outfit and special accessories.
    You’ll find this funny but my issue of Martha Stewart shows knitting in the round with all those needles. I don’t think I will ever get it. Even MS was way beyond me. Oh, I’d better get to polishing the silver, cleaning out 20 bird feeders, and wrapping all of my outdoor pots with burlap for the winter. Whoa is me. I’m so behind.

      Hi Joy and thank you!
      I always felt the same with all of those needles, but this time it all made sense and the needles knew where to fit comfortably between my fingers to allow me to knit. Don’t give up; one day it may work. However, I find that it does take longer to knit in the round because of the more frequent needle repositioning from hand to hand.
      Good luck getting all of your chores accomplished. I bet you’ll feel great when they are completed! Wishing you a productive day!

      Hello Catherine,
      Thanks so much from me, and Gina too. She is blushing right now with all of the compliments she is getting. I hope you have a very nice day (or are having).
