The blog might have been quiet last week but a lot was going on. Enough to probably do a blog post everyday this week. I have a few finishes to share and Wednesday will be my what I read in November post. Let's get started.
Floyd helped me crochet a Christmas gift. He's holding one of the big one pounder skeins from JoAnn's. The afghan I'm working on used almost 3 whole ones. That's a lot of stitches.
The older kids only had 2 days of school last week. Wednesday was supposed to be a cookie making day but we only got 2 batches done since I ran out of flour. Oops. We even had to use some bread flour for both of these recipes. Next time I'll double check ALL of my ingredients before starting a cookie day. We also did some gift making which I'll share later this week.
We decorated our little tree on Saturday.
And I did more crocheting beside it.
And I finally finished it! Only took me a few months but it sat a lot of that time. The Tardis afghan is a free pattern and can be found here. Not the best picture. I might have to take another one. But now that it's done, I can cast on several more Christmas gifts. Look for more progress pictures later this week.
How's your holiday crafting going? I'm still optimistic I'll get everything done. That includes 3 kid sweaters (only 1 is started and I still need to wind yarn for one, too) and 3 more quilts.
