Expat in Korea

A peek at Autumn in Korea, plus crafty doings

Hard to believe that it’s been two weeks since my last post! I’ve been a bit bogged down by work, family matters, and attention to the U.S. election. I have been faithfully keeping up with my crafty projects, even though they’ve slowed down for the moment. After the end of the semester, I’ll definitely devote more time again to my creative life.

Just want to share a few shots of Autumn colors in my neighborhood. I’ve been wearing the new tasseled shawl that I told you about in my previous post. It’s so roomy and cozy. The gingko trees have all turned gold and mostly dropped their leaves now (they are always the quickest to shed their leaves, whereas the maples take their time). The weather these last few weeks has been fine indeed and I’m enjoying as much outside time as possible with Bo before the chill really sets in.

I haven’t updated about the Fedde stole, or my newest WIP amigurumi, in some time. I promise to do that in an upcoming post. I am also waiting for a very slow shipment of fire-polished glass beads to arrive in my mailbox so I can finally finish making that crocheted lampshade. Many things are on hold at the moment, but I think closer to Christmas, I’ll have more finished objects to share.

Grandma Fay, Aunt Jean, and me in diapers in July 1970

I want to dedicate this post, the beautiful Autumn colors, and especially the golden gingko heart to my dear Grandma Fay, who passed away on November 3, at just shy of 102 years old.
