Can anyone tell me how it got to be the end of September so quickly? I have only gotten one thing of my XMAS knitting done and I have lots more to go. I really love giving at least one hand made item to friends and family for the holidays, but I don't know if I am going to make it this year. EEK!! Please someone develop a way to squeeze more time out of each day!
Over the course of my weekend I have managed to finish up a few things. I got to do quite a bit of crafting which was lovely. A family friend of ours has a little girl that will be 2 in December and I wanted to finish cutting out all the applique pieces for her quilt. I made one for her when she was born and I some how got myself on the 2 year plan - although I'm not sure I will be able to keep up. All that is left for me to do is the actual appliqué.... My wonderful MIL is going to quilt it for me on her amazing machine. I only wish I had the space to do all the crafting I would like.
Next on the craft list was to finish the knitting part of my tea pals pot holder - I really love this pattern and can't wait to show off how it looks all sewed up with the fabric and batting.
The honeycomb effect is lovely and I really love how it pops with this red. The other crafty thing I was able to accomplish was to finish a necklace for my friend and fellow blogger Michele. I was inspired by the large center button and knew it would really look awesome as a necklace.
Work is getting busier, but more importantly I get to go to a concert on Friday night - Rilo Kiley here we come. I love this band and if you haven't heard them go check them out on Youtube. You wont regret it.
To everyone a great week with lots of extra crafting time!!!
