First, let's backtrack...
Friday... I forgot to share a newly completed knitting project. I finished my Christmas Magic Cowl... exactly one year and one day after starting it:
Saturday... after doing my weekly RSC post for Angela's LINK PARTY, I went over to Needleb's for an afternoon of quilting. I went over on Friday, but didn't take my sewing machine. I sat and knit instead (since I had stayed up WAY past my bedtime working on quilted "elf sewing" the night before!)
With my machine in tow, I worked on Clue #4 of the On Ringo Lake Mystery. It's STILL not too late for YOU just jump in! All of the Clues and Link-Ups can be found HERE:
After completing my Mystery work, I added patch pockets to the last three Trail Totes:
I started to call it a day...
... But decided that the guys wouldn't be ready for dinner yet. Since I didn't bring any other projects, I was forced to attach the straps to those last three Trail Totes:
Needleb only had to show me the process on ONE of those and the other two I attached all on my own. It only took EIGHT times to FINALLY get it!!!!!!!!!!! I'm just a BIT directionally challenged!! LOL!!!!!!! :o))
SUNDAY - I was a lump on the couch nearly the whole day through. It was a GOOD thing, though! I was able to catch up on a lot of computer work and catch up on what's been going on in BlogLand, too.
MONDAY - Knit Group was followed with a sewing lesson for a new knitter. Not traditional sewing, but attaching a pocket to a knitted scarf... using yarn. And a darning needle. It was interesting, to say the least!
Before bed, I went up and finished the LAST project currently in Santa's Sweatshop. Boy, does THAT feel good!!
TUESDAY - After a morning of household chores, I went off to be pampered at the hairdressers. I don't know about you, but my neck hates the shampoo bowl, but my head LOVES getting my hair shampooed!! It's one of THE BEST things on earth. :o))
Instead of heading straight home, I opted to head directly to the coffee shop for a session with my Hoodie Shawl Cardigan and a London Fog Latte (and maybe a big ole' chocolate chip cookie, but we'll just pretend that part never happened.) :P
WEDNESDAY - Another FREE morning was followed by an afternoon of errands and other such...
After which, I dropped by Needleb's for some friendly sewing time! I made some progress on my Scrap Jar Stars in BROWN. The 16-Patch portions are done and waiting for star points:
I also did a bit of BROWN scrap sewing for another of Fiona's scrappy QAYG Scrap Baskets:
Needleb worked on a Christmas Tree Skirt:
THURSDAY - Today was the day for my Weekly Quilt Group's Holiday Potluck. YUM!!! There were also a few gifts exchanged:
Oops! A couple of the baskets got stuck in my bag:
I got a scrappy key chain...
... And a handy dandy Craftsman multi-driver that fits most DSMs:
I also made some progress on one of my current knitting projects:
FRIDAY - "Sweater Class" was graced with a guest today:
I followed this up with some sewing with Needleb. I completed a fair amount of cutting...
... Along with a little bit of sewing - SJS style, of course. These blocks aren't going to make themselves, you know! The HSTs are now sewn for the star points:
Needleb finished her Tree Skirt... sans binding:
I also did some elf sewing, but I can't share that just yet. Soon!
SATURDAY - We have arrived at the next-to-last LINK PARTY of the year. It's totally incomprehensible, but there you have it.
Until next time...
