All better

This week I have been pretty under the weather to say the least, but I was super well taken care of and now I'm feeling much better (2 trips to the doc later)! Just in time for my birthday!
Here are photos from the weekend:
 I made the snow hat from Elsie's blog tutorial! It came out pretty cute! 
Too cute.
 Little Mickey made a friend at my parents', the cat next door. Just had to take a picture.
Sashiko sampler embroidery for my swap + more! Done and done! I'll show you the finished product shortly, I'm keeping it a surprise :)
Getting ready to make a doily table runner! Mickey was obviously helping. I saw this over on Sherry's very cute blog.
I finished the granny square blanket! I was soooooo happy!
My very good friend, Molly finally got her Christmas present! more photos here.
My sister's giant granny square blanket in progress still! What do you think so far?
pretty yarn I thought I'd share
Tomorrow is my 27th birthday
I will probably be absent again for a bit, 
but I will be having fun!
I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

All sorts

I really want to make these knic-knat box to hold dunnys & toys! Go to Christine's blog, it's wonderful, but I can't read it!
Just because it makes me smile! This is an old photo of my aunt Jackie, who is now a nurse, and my dad, her patient/cowboy! My next project is scanning all my Nanny's old photos and print them all up and put them on disks for everyone in our family! 
Home Sweet Home by Sebastian Lester. I really like his whole site.

Nesting love

I had a goal over the weekend and I did not accomplish that goal. Oh well, I can next weekend! 
I bought this DIY Nesting Doll set on etsy awhile ago, and have never done anything with them. I need to find them, that maybe goal one and goal two will be painting them.
Also in that cute shop is this little nesting house! I want it, but I'm making myself finish the doll one first!
I was given my first nesting doll by my grandfather, he and my uncle visited Austria. I thought they were pretty awesome then and now I can appreciate all the detail and time that was put into them.  This little necklace is wonderful - found here. 
These clever prints found here.
I love these!
The gold looks pretty here.
And my most favorite, the side show nesting dolls!
I hope you all had very lovely weekends, if you met goals or not ;)

Oh Happy Day

I saw this on Etsy and it pretty much summed up how I've been feeling! Happy Happy! Plus I love the design of this greeting card!

Here is the progress of the Crocheted Carnival Blanket for my sister, Lauren. Please excuse the terrible pictures! I just found my battery charger for my camera and 3 batteries, so good pictures coming soon!
Chelsey, I hope you make a crazy colored blanket like this! I want to see your Carnival Crocheting!
This is the only yarn I will use to crochet! All the others hurt my fingers after crocheting for a bit! I've only seen it at Hobby Lobby, and now Hobby Lobby has joined us in 2010 and has online ordering!!! I thought it was strange you couldn't order from them online, but as of Jan. 1st you can! Plus if you buy $25.00 worth of stuff, you get free shipping! Perfect!
Yay for Thursday! Almost Friday!

Today I pre-ordered the next Sookie book! Probably I could just go to the store in May and buy it, but Amazon gives you a discount on pre-orders and sometimes I just can't WAIT- like a kid. So now I'm all pumped about Sookie, only I have to wait 5 long months!
So while we patiently wait, here are some vamper items and photos for you!  I love this True Blood Garnet Ring by Idle Hands Design on etsy! My birth stone is garnet ps ;)
I love this photo of the vamper gal!
How cute is this!? I found it on!
