WIP Wednesday

Here it is Wednesday again. I’ve completed 3 of the 4 items for my friend, and hope to finish the last one tonight when I get off of the computer.

The big WIP completed this week was not by me but for me. My friend Leslie completed the beautiful lace shawl she was making for me.

Leslie does fabulous lace work, you have to go to her site (above) to see all the details. I grabbed one of her pictures of my shawl to pique your interest.

The dinosaur hat fit my son’t godson perfectly, so I was very pleased. I am going to make Santa hats and snowmen for the NICU babies and plan to make Cooper one also since I know his size now.

I am going to make 2 ear warmers for one of the gals at work next. I hope to start the first one tonight.

Then I have 2 more Christmas gifts to complete in the next couple of weeks. Busy but fun times; the holidays are my favorite time of the year. But I could do without the snow 🙂

Saturday – Family , Friends & Fun

Today was chocked full of things to do and things that got done. If you read yesterday’s post I had a long, long, laundry list of things to do this weekend.

So far so good. I did a few of the necessary things to do. The yearly mammogram – done. Bills paid – done. Both necessary evils.

Now for the fun stuff. The hubby and middle son worked on my cousin’s car this morning, so I got to visit with my aunt and cousin. I love just chatting and laughing with my family 🙂 While we chatted, I knitted. So I am 1/2 way done on the last project for a friend of mine. Hope to finish this week.

After they got done we went to lunch with 2 out of 3 sons (the 3rd son lives in Maryland, so he gets a pass on joining us) at the newly opened McAllister’s Grill in Naperville. We loved the one in Missouri so were super excited when this one opened locally.

Since it was so nice out we decided to clean out the flower beds. Our youngest dog, Mea, decide she would rather have us playing with her instead of getting the yard ready for winter. After we ignored her, she finally tossed her Frisbee on the grasses we were cutting down then laid on them to prove how neglected she felt.

Eventually she looked sad enough for my hubby to play a bit of fetch before it got too dark out since daylight savings time rolled in last month.

Tonight we are going to a concert, so the rest of the day will be spent relaxing and enjoying the show and good company of our best friends.
