Tuesday: Made myself do laundry, housework, and go grocery shopping all morning. (The model of responsibility, that's me!) During nap time, I pulled out all the fleece blankets to check them over for missed tassels, then folded and stuffed them into bags. And totally forgot to count them. Do I want to drag them all back out and do that? Something to ponder. I still have a few blankets being finished by friends this week...and I can't show you "after" pictures of my spiffy dining room until the fleece is gone. Check out what it looks like under the table!
I worked a bit more on stashing my piles away in the new craft storage dresser thingy, and realized that I was in danger of forgetting everything I wanted to be working on, so I dug up a tablet of paper I've probably had since college and started Ye Olde Craft Log. Here's the current log list...
Tuesday night was Knit Night. I finished the first hat for Alex, and almost finished the second one when 10pm rolled around. I just completed it this morning (thank you, Elmo!) Brynn was not really a willing model but here are some pictures of both the hats. We do love matchy-matchy winter accessories!
Wednesday: After an entire morning of hospital and doctor visits, then an impromptu lunch with my brother, Noah, who was driving through KC on his way to Dallas, I caught up on finances (you're welcome, Brad) and then finally had a chance to look through my mom's Shutterfly site and order some photos to fill in the gaps of 2010!
I filled the album with photos up through Thanksgiving, but then ran out of room in the album and had to run to Walmart during ballet for a couple more! At this point, I have to stash the photo projects until the Shutterfly pictures arrive. I have ordered a bunch from Brynn's birthday, so once I have everything in hand I need to do her birthday scrapbook. Then I'll know which pictures I have left over for the family album. Gee, I wish I had a handy place to store the piles of photos and albums where little hands can't find them. OH WAIT, I have a place now! All hail the new craft storage dresser! (You know, I'm getting tired of referring to it as the craft storage dresser unit thingy. I need to come up with a simple name. I'll get back to you on that. If you have any ideas, I'm all ears!)
Last night I also finished the second skein on my prayer shawl, which means I'm officially 2/3rds done with it. Gettin' there!
Thursday: Already?? Well, it's lunchtime and then hopefully little-miss-sinus-infection will take a decent nap. Then I can clean up the photo project and then choose something off Ye Olde Craft Log! What to make, what to make....
