Holiday, Celebrate!!!!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was pretty quiet and uneventful. I took two extra days off because my birthday is Wednesday, so I'm still home and enjoying it. I mowed the lawn yesterday, and today I'm trimming the hedges and planting my new hydrangea bush and a flower mat that I purchased. I'll take pictures when I'm done. I want to see if this mat really works.

I have lots of plans for the next two days. Joann Fabrics had a 99 cent sale on patterns so I went a little crazy. These are for my mother.

These are for the Fi. I've never sewed for a guy before. This should be interesting.

These are for me.

I'm starting with these two first, Simplicity 3742, and Simplicity 3807. They look pretty simple, so I hope to have at least one done by the weekend, if not before.

In knitting news, I'm almost done with the baby blanket. I'll be glad when it's done. Then I can get on to more fun projects, and the customer who wanted it can stop calling me. I still can't believe she told the people she was suppose to be knitting it for, that she made it. Supposedly, she's a newbie knitter and she didn't like the yarn, so she asked the owner of my lys to do it for her, and she in turn asked me to do it. It's unreal what some people would do, and then take the credit in the end. I'm not crazy about the yarn, but she picked it out, and I made the best of it. The pattern is hard to see in this picture, but I did blocks of garter and stockinette. I embedded the roman numeral X into the blanket.

I also got a chance to work on the interweave knits lace nightie. This is what I have so far. All I can say is that it's beautiful. It's definitely a pattern you have to concentrate on, or else nothing lines up.

That's it for now. Today I want to leave you all with a little luck. My friends and I found a 5 leaf clover on Sunday, and I want to share it.

Hi Andrea, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment! I also enjoyed looking at all of your FO and WIP. The Inter.Knit lace nightie is on my list. I can't wait to begin it - - I need more hours in the day! I'm going to put you on my blog list and visit again to see it completed.

I would do something really evil like sew a tag in the blanket that says "made with love by Andrea"....I can't believe she is taking credit for your work, you know karma will bite her in the ass sooner or later though. Happy belated birthday!
