Just anxiously watching and waiting and (honestly) dreading the announcement. I cast my early ballot on Thursday and, judging from the parking lot outside our tiny courthouse, am glad I did.

So with my one little vote floating out there somewhere, I'm now wrapped in a warm sweater and sipping Gingerbread Spice Tea and quietly stitching away. My latest project? Sweet, fluffy, cozy handwarmer sets. I simply love these. I've several I have made over the years. They're perfect for keeping fingers toasty during blustery walks and outings and ball games and flea marketing and leaf raking and snowman building and ... well, all the things that keep me and my icy fingers outside.


I'm making a few sets for you lovely people, too. Just my little way of spreading some homemade, holiday warmth and cheer. Visit the Freeman House Shop on etsy to get one of your own... or pick up one to stuff a stocking. Guaranteed to warm and bless. [wink]

Wishing you a wonderful evening as we watch this wild night unfold. Warmly, Brin

Oh don't watch! Bake, read, dance, play the piano, watch a movie...anything but watch the media that can't be trusted anyway. We're listening to music, gonna do some reading in a bit after I finish baking cookies.

Courage!

Brin, we may be on other sides of the fence politically, but I adore your blog and have been a long time reader and will always be. And reading about your "Messy Thrilling Life" brings happiness into my own messy thrilling life. I'm an American before I'm a Democrat. God Bless.

Great handwarmers. Your pictures are just fabulous. Maybe you should get into photography.

I've never heard of handwarmers before? Do you keep them in your pockets and when you need to warm your hands you just hold them?

Leave it to you Brin to come up with the simple, pretty things in life! I love the hand warmers, the hearts are adorable! Your blog is a heart warmer, like a favorite book I can't put down and when you hurt so do we, I feel helpless except for prayer, for you, for our country. I know you will be ok!
