Knitting and such

This last week has been me trying to get a few things done for one of the charities that I work with. I have been knitting some quick boa scarves and have also knit two self patterning hats.

Oh, this week I also was able to get 54 pairs of pants (13-18 pound size) cut out so now I think I have around 170 cut out and now just need to sit down and sew them so that I can get them out of the way as quickly as possible. The cutting out of the pants means spending a day with my mom laughing and enjoying our time together. It's great having the chance to do this while I am currently looking for a new contract or full-time job.

I have also been getting some of the living room cleaning up which is very satisfying. It has taken quite a while for me to get into a routine of wanting to do things like clean up an area but now seem to be enjoying doing this a little bit at a time.

Now to see what I can accomplish this weekend so that I can see more and more results. I think what I should do is try and write down what I accomplish so that I can see what is done.

Now to see what I can get done.

Where is the time going

It's hard to believe another week is over but I have been busy which is great.

I have had a good week and my sewing machine that I added to my wish list has arrived thanks to my wonderful husband who got it for me. I haven't had much of a chance to use it as I just got it Thursday evening. I am hoping that this week I am work on some pants for one of the charities that I work with.

I have been trying to get some organization done as well this week so that has also meant not quite as much crafting being done. I have finally taken a picture of the 4-way bargello that I finished after the creative festival. Now to just post the picture where.

Time to curl up for a little while to craft before starting another week early tomorrow. Now to just try and take some more pictures this week so that I can post what has been happening.

Another Crazy Week

It's hard to believe that it's Monday already and last week is over.

The good news is I did finish knitting the hat and scarf set for the friend that was moving to Edmonton. The bad new is I wasn't able to give it to her as she didn't work last week like she said she would be.

Right now I have been trying to get all my craft supplies organized so that has taken up some time so haven't got anything done craft wise. Now to see what I can do this week as I would like to have something to show for all the time I have been spent crafting. I know that tomorrow I am planning on spending some time cutting out some pants for babies as one of the charities that I craft for needs some. I also need to finish off some preemie blankets and some receiving blankets so I better get busy on them.

Hopefully soon I will be able to start posting more pictures to show you what I have been working on instead of just talking about them.
