Finished another monster!  This one is knitted, from The Big Book of Knitted Monsters by Rebecca Danger. Very cool book and it was a gift from my friend Pat. Here is the new guy.

Finally finished the zebra!  Laker blue and gold.
I seem to be having an issue with my new app for posting to my blog.  We'll see if this works now!

morning cuddles

We like to start our day with morning cuddles.
It's a great way to start a day!
I am going to sew a bit today. I bought fat quarters at the Moose yesterday. Thanks for the great sale Chris!

The more I think...

the more I add to my list of things I would like to get done this weekend! There is the quilt that needs binding, and the fleece baby blanket I am putting a crochet edge on that I want to finish. And the 2nd monster kit Jim bought me for Christmas I would like to knit up. And my novel that I am working on that I would like to get to 10,000 words and is only at just over 5,000 words. So I guess since it is cold, I may as well stay in and work on some things! And since now I have posted everything I need to work on, I guess at the end of the weekend I will have to post what I have finished. :-) Nothing like pressure from the public to keep you going.
I have so many projects on the needles:
-A scarf for an AG doll
-The zebra
-A second sock that I even forgot I had knit the first of the pair
With freezing temps outside it's a good time to stay in and work on things.

Tired of being sick!

I am on my 2nd round of antibiotic and I really have to admit that I am tired of taking medicine. 3 more days of it and I will be done. I was off 2 days this last week and was so wore out I didn't get anything done. Seems like a waste of 2 days off, doesn't it? Today I am working on putting a crocheted edging on a fleece blanket. I got the edging done and now I am handstitching under the raw edge. Next time I will fold that edge under so I don't have to do this part. This is the first time I have done this, I bought 4 pieces of fleece over a year ago in Toledo when it was on sale. Time to get it out of the closet. The weather here has turned cold, and I know that someone will be able to use the blankets, 2 will be toddler size and the other 2 pieces of fleece are large enough to cut in half to do 4 baby blankets.
Tomorrow is a holiday, so it will be nice to have an extra day to work on projects.
