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:
I shared a tip:
I managed a few recipes:
And have several projects still being finished up:
Narrow Tatted Trim (several inches longer and still going well!)

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