November Review

I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

If you’re actually reading these posts in order, no you are not going crazy, yes I did do the November Review and the December Intro backwards. If you’re not reading them in order, and have no idea what I’m talking about,  sure I did it the right way, why would you think otherwise?

November flew past and I admit I did not get nearly as much done from the 1962 issue as I’d hoped. I create a page in my planner for each issue with a list and check boxes of projects I want to do, and there are many, many, unchecked boxes. I did manage to do quite a few too. I never got to post with you about just some of the crazy ads it had, and I wish I had managed more recipes. I do intend to keep working on unfinished projects as time allows, and maybe sneak in a few recipes this month too (Anise Candy anyone?)

For projects completed I got:

Cold feet? No more!

Curly “Teen” Hat

I shared a tip:

Easy Non-Slip Grip

I managed a few recipes:

Spiced Apples

Hot Turkey Salad

And have several projects still being finished up:

Poor Man’s Doily

Narrow Tatted Trim (several inches longer and still going well!)

And even this one from October is still going:

Stockinette

This issue also featured a very basic ribbed hat, in the Women who Make Cents column, and I intend to make one to match the Man’s Scarf in the December issue, as a set for Christmas.

Here’s a few great ads I never got to share with you:


Anyone want a monkey for Christmas?? I would LOVE to hear if any readers out there ever had one of these!


As a homeschooler I found this one interesting. You can in fact still buy these, for around $8-10 each.

And this is a sentimental favorite

For years and years I heard that my Grandmother had raced seahorses. I always found that absolutely fascinating and wondered how on earth you even do that! I was well into adulthood and helping clear out her house when I discovered it was much less exciting, she RAISED sea horses. From what I gather if you ever ordered one of these she may have been the one to ship it out! But my entire life when I’ve seen an old sea horse ad I thought of my Grandma who raced sea horses! Lol

And with that, let’s continue into December!
