Last night I *finally* finished the snowflake afghan I've been working on in fits and spurts for almost a year now.
It's going to be a gift for my mentor at work at the point we leave Madison - which won't be for a long time- but I tend to like to give myself at least a few
Next up is one may have to be a little speedier; though who knows when we'll actually have room for a "nursery". At minimum I have 6.5 months to finish it. More realistically, I have until Daniel graduates. In any case, I found this cute cross-stitch pattern way back in 2010 and decided it would be perfect for a baby's room. Now that I'm free from the tyranny of the snowflake afghan overlord, I can start on another public works project.
Finally I did some baby shower shopping. I have three baby showers coming up - one before we leave and two immediately after- and I wanted to take care of the gift obligation this weekend.
Gift set 1 on the left is for one of the gals who is actually having two showers (one is a "couples" shower in a fancy restaurant so I think we are going to come out ahead financially even after buying two gifts) so I bought Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do you Hear? (an item on her registry) as a gift for one shower and another book and a squishy football for the second.
Can you see what the other book is? I picked this up in Target, read through it, and about cried right there on the picture book aisle (which probably happens more than you think).
|My mom used to read this to us when we were really little.|
Everybody loves the squishy balls.
Hope you had a good long weekend!
