Weekend Wonderment

I want this project to be done so I'm going to spend all my time working on it this weekend.
My weekend is going to be spent finishing my OWL.  I don't have much more to do - cardboard inside frame, corner posts, doorjamb, corner candy cane posts, random candy cane decorations and a snow tipped tree.  Then I have to glue it all on - yep, the directions say to hot glue everything.  I sewed the icicles on because it just didn't seem right to glue them to the roof.  I was going to sew the door and candies on to the front but I was worried that it would make the final product lumpy so I didn't.

Once I'm done with this, I'm going to finish my Detention project that I designed back in the beginning of June.  I knew it was going to take me some time because it's basically sock yarn so it's taking me a while to work all of those tiny stitches but I am really liking how it is coming out so far.  Still not sure if I'm going to keep it for me or use it for Christmas but either way, I know I will be happy with the end result.  Here it is so far...

I'm a little further than this photo shows - I'm down to the 2x2 ribbing for the band now!
I was supposed to see Peanut this weekend when she and my mama brought Hobbit home, an event that happened on Wednesday because Hobbit had a really bad moment and my mama made that threat earlier that week that if she were to do it again, she would go home... 7:30 on Wednesday night, Hobbit was getting out of the car in the driveway.  Everyone is fine now after a long conversation and Hobbit was wonderful yesterday so hopefully this is the end of a very long road.  Anywho, back to seeing Peanut.  I was designing that star wrap for her and finished it last Sunday so I don't think I shared the final results.  Here is Peanut on Wednesday, which was supposed to be tomorrow, in her wrap/cape that I designed for her...

She was super tickled to get it - even said it was 'awesome' and never took it off.
I think she really honestly liked it... and if she didn't, she faked it really well which is just as good in my book because it felt like she was really happy to get it.  I love that she was wearing purple when I gave it to her.  It just reaffirmed that I chose the right colors.

So that is my weekend... my last full weekend off since starting the next week I will begin my new 'normal' schedule.  It has me working Sun-Tuesday from 4 p.m. until midnight and again on Friday.  It's actually a really great schedule because even after school starts, it will be seamless.  The only challenge might be when Pokey gets a new position that he's been interviewing for lately but even then, I don't think it will be a big deal because we will always have Saturday.
