I just can't believe how work cuts into my free time. I know, I know, it should be a no-brainer, but I am having a horrible time getting back to "normal" after my last vacation. I seem to have lost what little time management I had. I'm still working on projects, but oh so slowly. LOL I knit two or three rows, then find myself slipping off to sleep. At least I'm using circulars so the needles are short and less likely to poke me in the eye. LOL
I am done with the dark yarn, moving back into some of the lights. I think I have two skeins left...
A dear friend of mine started this needlebook from The Primitive Hare. She realized after doing three quarters of the stitching, the instructions had been just a bit vague. She stitched the inside and outside patterns too close on a single piece of linen. She put it into a bag and refused to touch it again. LOL I told her that I would "fix" it for her. Soooo....I finished stitching the inside pattern, moved the wording to the bottom of the boxes and added fabric at the top and bottom to compensate for the lack of linen. I think it turned out very well. It will be off to her house next week.
I was a little hesitant to do the blanket stitch around the outside, not my style...but on the other the hand, not my needlebook! LOL
It is once again fudge time!! I started last night, made six batches. Salted Caramel, Coconut Chocolate, and Chocolate Mint. Here is a picture of the finished coconut fudge...
You will notice the pan of salted caramel...with a piece missing. Hmmm. I am pretty sure it wasn't me. LOL DH was helping last night, by licking and then washing the tools for the next batch. Guess he decided I didn't leave enough on the spatulas. I still need to make Peanut Butter, Pumpkin, Peppermint, and Plain Chocolate. Most of it goes out for gifts, but this year I'll be saving a bit for Baby Boy.
And how long before he's home? Two days! He's in Phoenix, but will be back on the road Monday or Tuesday. I am very excited to have him home for Christmas...it's been a long, long time. SMILE
I am off to start my day. I hope that each of you have an amazing day. Be kind to one another.
