Another gift done

Yesterday I had to work the most of the morning but this skirt is quick so I managed to finish it in the PM. I don't see Jade wearing this much but with her 50's bobbed hair and a pair of saddle shoes she will be retro all the way.

so here is the poodle, or should I say Kitty skirt.

Stocking Stuffers

This morning I did stocking stuffers. Well, the stockings will have to be large but I got some bears material the other day and decided that some of the kids would like throw pillows for their teams too. then you can't send two out of three boys pillows for their rooms so construction truck pillows seemed in order. I did manage to get the cat done for Jade's poodle skirt but got no further. Maybe tomorrow. Remember slow and steady wins the race, even when it is the race to get things done for the holidays.

Working away for the holidays

The front of Logan's sweater is completed and I took a little break. The tea cozy went fast...well, except for the felting. I have a nice new gentle washing machine and with less agitation it takes at least one or more times to get my felting finished. If I can continue to turn things out at a steady pace I will be OK. The question is how do you stay steady during the holidays. right now I am struggling with finding a pan large enough to brine the turkey. So far I have had no luck. I bought a 21 pound turkey. Do you think I just might have created my own problem. Everyone said they wanted leftovers so it looks like leftovers they will get....if I can figure out a way to submerse this thing that is.

I was out raking leaves today and it finally hit me. It is almost mid November. I have put in a picture of the sweater I need to finish for Logan by Christmas. That wouldn't be a probelm. What the yikes means is I also have a reto poodle skirt outfit to make Jade, a wall hanging, pillows for a bunch of people, a felted tea cozy.....well you get the idea. the list goes on and on. I must no panic...I must not panic...I must not panic.

another Great Swap package

I was feeling kind of light headed when I had the sinus infection and so once again signed up for a couple of swaps. I have been so lucky with my swap partners and this is no exception. In this swap you were to look at the profile and send things you had around the house. No fair buying anything new just for your partner. i think my partner did a wonderful job. I only wish I could get a better picture of the fabric that is dotted with sparkling stars. Thanks again partner. I already have ideas how to use my wonderful haul.

Halloween 07

Here are Logan and Jade back from trick or treating. There is also a picture of Chewie so was so exhausted after they left he did his mush mouth thing. The final picture is my Thanksgiving cactus that doesn't seem to understand it is a month away from Thanksgiving. No time to work on my sweater with Halloween here but I am thinking you will get a quick preview this weekend. By the time I started the pattern Logan had grown and so I had to order more yarn. Lucky for me in this case I can just add another color because I would hate to try and match more then a year later. I need to remind myself when it comes to yarn I should always get more then I think I need. anyone else have the problem?
