Holidays!

Thanksgiving was great! I spent a lot of time with family including my cousin's twin babies! My grandparents are going back to Florida and I will miss hanging out with them. My grandma knits too and we took a quilting class together over the summer that was a lot of fun.

DH and I bought a little tree and decorated it this weekend. We just need some candy canes and a tree skirt to finish it.
This is a scarf I am making for my mother-in-law. I am about a fourth of the way done and then I have to make one for my father-in-law. I love this pattern and the yarn is super soft. After the holidays I might just make one for myself!


I also have one block left for the Block Of the Month at my local quilt shop! I can't wait to put the top together. This will be hubby's Christmas present if I finish it in time (fingers crossed)! Hopefully I will get a lot of work done this week.

Friday Night

Friday was a very long night. The Girl Scouts spent the night in the mall so the store I work at stayed open and we didn't get off work until midnight. I was able to get a little bit of knitting done before I crashed but not even enough to really take a picture of. I am very disappointed but hopefully next time I will be able to actually have the time to participate.

Staying Busy

The time is flying by. Tonight is the Friday Night Sew In! I am hoping I can stay awake to get some projects done after work. We are not closing the store until 11:30 tonight so it will be a very long night for me. It seems when you work retail that your plans always get messed up by something but hey, that's life. So far I have finished 3 scarves for Christmas and have 4 more to go plus finishing two quilts.
Oh! And the new Josh Groban CD came out this past Monday and it is wonderful! Josh Groban is a fantastic singer and I love quilting or knitting while listening to his music. Tomorrow I will have some pictures to put up. I wish everyone good luck tonight!
