Weekend Recap

I'd be lying is I said I was all better this morning, but I am certainly much closer to it. I even managed a fairly good nights sleep last night for the first time since I acquired this blasted cold. Of course that doesn't mean I got anything worth note accomplished this weekend though. In fat I even forgot to get Sunday's TIAS section done, but since my lazy self isn't even emailing in my results, I suppose it doesn't matter whether I do it on time or not. I mostly do it for myself as a bit of a distraction from the slow shop anyway.

Speaking of distractions though, I'm back to the bloody crochet hats. Last week when I was babysitting my nieces, my oldest volunteered me to make them hats as well. So after getting some more yarn, I was working on those. Then on Sunday my Mother-in-law commissioned me to make her some Valentine colored snowflakes and crochet yet another hat.  So I suppose I am in fact, pretty busy, just not on anything new or interesting that I bothered to take a picture of.

The kids still have three more days of vacation and then it's back to work with them so I'm getting ready to lose the extra free time I was beginning to enjoy. This also means I need to use all the time I do have more wisely. I'll try to get that new necklace I made up last week listed today as well. I no longer feel like I look like I'm carrying the plague, so I should be able to manage a photo or two. Then it's back to the commissioned pieces, the TIAS I forgot yesterday and it's about time to start thinking about taxes as well. Yep, this is going to be an interesting week, probably not good interesting, but still, interesting. Here, have a cat picture because that's all I have to share.

Cat pictures are always appreciated. :)

I am in a hat-making phase too. I found a pattern that's not only really easy but also easy to remember, which is great because I don't need to carry around the instructions anymore. I've made 6 so far in sizes from adults to kids and will do more; I have too much yarn and hats are a fast way to use it up. I may keep one for myself but the others will be donated to a homeless shelter.

I'm glad you're feeling better and I hope all the symptoms will soon be over.

We have 5 kitties, all outside. Enjoy reading about your tatting adventures, I think your beginner pendant was my first needle tatting success! Slowly moving forward, thanks for the help!
