If anyone asks me if I had a nice weekend, I can honestly say 'yes', but boy, am I tired!

When you've spent the whole week feeling like this......
I've also been able to make this....
There have been other projects on the needles, but none I am at liberty to show!

After getting some chores out of the way, it was off to Fleet Pond to feed the birds. My daughter loves to feed the geese and swans - my favourites are the gulls.
I have lots of projects on the go at the moment, but none ready to show. A painting for Derwent, yet another alligator scarf, some footwear for the animation, and joy of joys, someone wants me to knit replicas of their 4 lurchers - I love knitting little dogs!
Oh yes, and there is another zombie on the way.....

This is a mini replica of a real dog called Wrigley who is a rather fine back spaniel. He's been rather a long time in the making as my list of commissioned work reached silly proportions this year.
He'll be off to his new home very soon!

This was a breakdancer on the street outside Quincy Market, part of a really entertaining group.

Stern Design Works - it was very hard to make a choice, I was tempted by the itsy cows and pigs too....

October 28th, we went to a craft market and the weather was closing in - the tops of the tall buildings were shrouded in cloud, the wind was picking up and the rain started.
After a sandwich at a local shop, we went back to the hotel and stayed safe in our room watching films for the rest of the day while the wind howled outside.
We did feel the media made too much of how Sandy was going to affect Boston - yes, it was bad throughout the Monday, but the next morning instead of the predicted continued wind and rain, we awoke to brilliant sunshine.
We didn't stay for the evening celebrations - by 4 p.m. we'd had enough and headed back.
November 1st was the day we went home - but as our flight was in the evening, we had time to visit Harvard. Bob had a spot of bother with one of the faculty.....
We feel very lucky we escaped the brunt of the hurricane - seeing the devastation in New York and New Jersey was a very sobering experience. I hope they get the help they need as soon as they can.
