A day late and a dollar short

O.K. You guys must forgive me. I told you I wanted to start my Tasteful Thursday's recipe blog this week. It definitely was a great inspiration for me to do since I like to cook but this week was too hectic for me to post. I haven't chosen the exact recipe I wanted nor did I have the time to post it. You see this week I was working close to Wisconsin which should have taken me no longer than an hour and a half to get there. Well on Wednesday it took me almost three hours! Yup you heard that right! Three hours! I was so tired when I got there. I didn't leave the office until six that evening and I arrived home around 7:40. I ate something quickly watched Criminal Minds and crocheted a bit then I went to bed. I didn't turn on my computer that evening. I was exhausted.

The next morning I left 40 minutes earlier. The traffic was much better than Wednesday and I arrived at 9:30. I left around 5pm and went to Wal Mart and picked up some necessities (including some sewing patterns, crochet patterns and a knitting guide). I made another stop and made it home at the same time as Wednesday evening. I then proceeded to sit and watch "The First 48", crochet and go to bed. So now you see why I missed posting my first Tasteful Thursday. I know you understand.

Well after all that I was thinking maybe I will wait until July to start. I will be working at the same office next week so my time will be limited. The following week I will be working with a co-worker so that should take up some time too. I think the first Thursday in July would be best. It's the day after the fourth of July so I should have enough time. So that's our new date! July 5th.

On a more fun note I bought two sewing patterns at Walmart. These are simple and I should be able to complete them in a weekend! I think I will do one a weekend. Now which weekend I don't know! LOL!

This is a really cute skirt. There are three different versions and its very simple but chic. I can't wait to try this one!

This is such a cute top and its so me! I love the angle of the bottom and the flowing sleeves! I think I might make this one first! I am going to try and go through my stash of material before I run out and buy some material for this outfit.

The other things I purchased are idea books for knitting and crocheting.

I found this magazine at JoAnn's. I really liked the cover projects. I like the magazine. I am hoping to find something to make from these.

I found this one at Wal Mart. It has some really cute baby items I can't wait to try. There is also a baby bonnet and booties in this issue! Someone is going to be lucky when I finish this one.

Another cute baby book with several items I would love to attempt! The baby layette has a pullover sweater I think is too cute! I definitely want to try that one!

This one has three crochet projects and one knitting project which is considered easy. We will see about that though!

I have three of the crochet stitching books by this company. I thought I would purchase this one for when I want to start knitting. I love the projects these books offer.

I found this in the clearance area of Wal Mart yesterday. I browsed through it quickly and I liked the projects. It was $7 so I thought what the heck! So this is the last of my idea books from yesterday. It should be for the rest of the year! LOL!

So to end this daily report I thought I would post a picture of my baby blanket in progress. I am working on row 28 out of 32 for this project. I will only have the edging remaining so I am getting very close to done! Maybe I will have it completed by the end of the weekend! Wish me tons of luck!
