More knitting done

I've been a very busy knitter lately and have finished up my fingerless mittens and the scarf for my friend. Today I am going to work on someone's Christmas present (knit) and make a bag (sew) from a pre-made kit.

It is a beautiful sunny day out but very cold! I am not going to complain though because I would rather have sun than clouds. It was 23 yesterday and I think it may have got up to 30. Everything was frozen over when I went to work. It was weird being at work with only a couple people there but luckily I only had to do two hours.

After work I went to Hancock fabrics to pick up some material for a quilt. Melissa and I are going to a class on the 3rd to make a quilt called "yellow brick road" I am doing mine is shades of pink and I am going to keep this one for myself.

All right, off to do a few chores and then work on projects!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! We have had a good day so far, just finished eating our main meal. I made baked French toast for breakfast and we ate at 3pm. Now we are just sitting down to watch some football and wait for pie time! We had ham, mashed potatoes, stuffing, corn, broccoli with cheese, and Hawaiian rolls. The puppies had a bowl of food with all the above except Hawaiian rolls. The pies are cherry and Dutch apple and we will have French vanilla ice cream. It has been very rainy today and we even had a flood warning earlier in the day. Might have some snow flurries/sleet tomorrow, yuck! I only have to work 2 hours tomorrow and then I am taking my car for 18 month check up after lunch. I can't believe I have had it that long already.

I am busy knitting today too. I am trying to finish up some projects that I had already started. I finished the scarf for my friend, I need to take a picture of it to post up. I will probably be knitting or sewing most of the weekend so I can get the Christmas stuff in the mail.

Well, time to get back to work, I hope everyone has a great day!

I finally got some knitting done!

Well, I finally sat down this afternoon and finished the Bolero Jacket! I didn't think it was ever going to finish knitting up but it did and I think it looks really good. I finished the pom-pom scarf for Britney's birthday last weekend so I am on a roll. Now I can move on to other projects. My friends birthday is next week so I want to knit up a quick scarf for her and then I will get back to Christmas stuff.

I bought a little tree to put in the bay window. I will probably put it up next Friday after Thanksgiving. I am going to work extra hours Mon-Wed so I can take Friday off.

Well there isn't much else going on here, it is getting cold and gray outside so we will see how long before it snows :(

Warm November Saturday

We have had really great weather this week and today was just really beautiful. I guess it is supposed to turn cold starting tomorrow, some kind of cold front moving in. We did a little gardening today. I cut back some roses today, I hope it was the right time to do it, hopefully I did not kill them. Need to get some mulch to cover the bottom of the rose bush and all of the bulb plants.

We tried to adopt another dog but it didn't work out. All he did was run away. One of the guys at work took him for his wife. He had been looking for one and when he saw the picture of this one it reminded him of a dog that they had had before. So, I think it all worked out well in the end.

I've been going to physical therapy for my back and it has really been helping. I am going back to acupuncture on Monday and I have been doing bi weekly massages so I am definitely on the mend.

I almost have Britney's scarf done for her birthday, I need to finish it up this weekend so I can get it in the mail soon. I am really not sure what I am going to have done in time for Christmas. I guess whoever gets something will be surprised.

All right off to have some dessert! mmmmm

Well, another week is done! I went to physical therapy Monday and it bothered my back so I had to stay home on Tuesday. It is still bothering me and sitting at work all day has not been fun. I am going to physical therapy tomorrow and hopefully it will help this time.

Melissa and I went to another cooking class. This one was for pies. Unfortunately it wasn't as good as the other class we took. I did take some pictures this time though.

We are going to have a new puppy if everything works out. We haven't seen him in person yet but he is coming tomorrow afternoon and if he gets along with the other puppies. He looks to be a corgi mix. I will post some pictures when he comes to visit.

I am really tired along with my back hurting I think David has past along his cold to me so should be a fun weekend! I am going to finish up Britney's scarf.
