Anyway, I've been hustling around here and for as slow as I am that is probably medium speed for you normal people. I finished the plant markers but they don't look that much different than before. I'll probably show you next week when I get them wrapped a little cuter.
I'm panicking about now as everything is supposed to be in the mail by the 12th to guarantee delivery by Christmas and my "list" is still in my head....not good!
Here's what I have to show you.........Grayson's hat...I will finish this by today for sure! Just the ear flaps and the i-cord ties left to do.
I started and finished a cowl for my daughter. I just need to weave in the ends. If I could just hire someone to weave in ends I'd be a lot farther along!
Sorry for the lousy photos but little Miss Peeps was in attack mode and I was afraid she was going to snag things. See that look in her eyes? Watch out!
I have the corner-to-corner blanket as wide as I want it now and have used up 3 or 4 skeins of yarn (there are so many skeins of this stuff.....I might be able to make them a pillow to match).
Now I have to go revisit Mickey's instructions (Crochet Crowd on You Tube) on how to make it a rectangle instead of a square.
OMG! Is that yarn hanging from her mouth? Someone is getting a "timeout" and it's not me!
I crocheted 6 coasters for my son but again there are ends to weave in and they will be getting colored "stripes" in between each row.Hopefully that will fix the "blahness" that emanates from them at the moment.
These are the beginning of "reindeer" mittens (2 pair need to be crocheted) and then I have to find a pattern for shark mittens for Uriah as he is a shark fanatic! I already know what I'm making for his birthday in July. Lion Brand has a free pattern for a shark rug....oh yeah!
I have some sewing to do too but will I get to it? Stay tuned! Tomorrow I'll blog about books as I've finished some good ones.
I got this card from some friends in Illinois and that is exactly how I feel! In case you're wondering how a person celebrates a holiday alone....here's how I did. I got a Butterball turkey breast bone in (I highly recommend it! Delish!), I made scalloped corn, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes and gravy and a pumpkin pie with whipped cream. While I cooked I watched a marathon of Anne of Green Gables that was on PBS starting at 8:30 in the morning. I got several calls from family and crocheted and knitted and had a wonderful dinner with a glass of my favorite wine...Mad Housewife (name of the wine not me)! LOL! It was a wonderful relaxing day filled with gratitude! Later during the weekend, I got to actually SEE on television here in the South... the Bears beat the Packers at Green Bay and Iowa win too! What more could a gal ask for? It rained for the whole holiday weekend but we were cozy and full all weekend! LOL!
P.S. Yes, the girls got some turkey too!
