Today was better. Today was slower. I think this was because we had nowhere to go today after work. We're enjoying the nothingness of tonight and we'll enjoy it again tomorrow because the weekend is going to be busy again. We're meeting my folks at a halfway point to drop off Hobbit on Friday night because on Saturday morning, Pokey and I have a Coaches Training/Meeting for Odyssey of the Mind all day Saturday. Then on Sunday, we're driving up to get Hobbit back for the week. It's just nuts.
I did manage to get some crafting done. I made a Autumn wreath for my front door area. I don't have a lot of decorations any more - over the years I thinned things out as they got old and kept meaning to replace them but never have so now I'm down to minimal items and the need to make new stuff is creeping in hard. Anyway, I made this wreath this week and I really love how it turned out.
|It's autumnal, right?|
|Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, doesn't it.|
I made some silly little ornaments this past week too. I needed something quick and small for Quidditch and these two fit the bill. Nothing spectacular, just cute.
|Maybe I'll just make a ton of them and hang them from the hooks on the porch.|
|Yes, I made it overlap on purpose to fit nicely over the legs of the new tree. It should even out then.|
I need to find a nice pattern for a lapghan to make Pokey's coworker. She was in a head-on collision this past week and has been in the hospital. I wanted to make her something but I am just stumped as to what. I initially thought shawl but then his friend at work said a lapghan so we'll see. I've got a skein of purple, her favorite color, in my stash. Maybe I can figure something pretty out.
Time to scoot. I'd like to get a few rows in before bed tonight. I hope you're having a fabulous week so far. I'll see y'all tomorrow.
