Pumpkin time.....

It's pumpkin pie time -  no, I'm not making pumpkin pie from scratch - my usual these days is picking up one of those $5.99 huge pumpkin pies from Costco - so good, inexpensive and I don't have to do a thing.

Pictures of pumpkins are on my blog because I can't show what I'm working on these days, gifts, nothing like last minute frenzy. I know, some may not think this is last minute but it is for me. There may not be pictures to show for a few weeks but I'll be working away in Santa's workshop none the less.

I'm feeling better about the new AVL today. Melody (AVL techie help) called me and we discussed my issues, she is wonderful, very patient, easy to understand and knowledgeable. Well, I was right, something was wrong, I wasn't being dense or crazy. Back in the summer when AVL sent the Weave Point software to me it turns out it was the Toika Loom version - not the AVL version. Of course I wouldn't have known this until I went to hook it up to the loom. So, hopefully tonight we'll uninstall the other version and get the correct one on the laptop, and the new updated driver too. Maybe soon there will be a picture of the first warp on the AVL....but not until Santa's workshop is caught up.


  1. So glad the loom problems are resolved. I can't imagine how disappointing it would be to get a major toy like that and not have it work.

    On the pumpkin front, I made pumpkin soup yesterday from our half of the CSA pumpkin. I had no idea it could be so good. It was just pumpkin and chicken stock, pretty much, and it tasted like pumpkin cream. Wow!

  2. Since I make the most gawd awful pies I buy mine too.
    (not that yours were gawd awful!) So glad to hear about progress on the AVL, YEAH!!!!
    I need to get upstairs and work on some gifts too.
    Way, way behind.
    Have a wonderful Turkey Day and a great long weekend.

  3. So glad to hear that things are moving forward with the AVL!

    If it's any comfort, I'm also busily working on Christmas projects ... and I really AM way behind, because I'm also working on overdue birthday presents. YIKES! Maybe SOMEday I'll learn to stop procrastinating and get them done ahead of schedule!

    Have a great Thanksgiving!!
