Enjoying the holiday

I hope everyone is getting a chance to enjoy the holiday. I am relaxing and trying to do a few things around the house personally.

This weekend was a busy one for me. I ran errands and did some cooking on Saturday. Then I went and got my hair done. It's really cute! I like it has grown out some. Look for some new pictures. My brother also came home for the weekend so I spent the night at my mother's home. It was nice.

I am also proud to say I have completed one sleeve of my cardigan I am making. I started the next sleeve and I do have a ways to go. I do hope to have it finished by the end of the week. I haven't however started my chenille cowl yet. I really wanted to focus my efforts into finishing the major portion of the cardigan. I think I will work on my cowl when I go to Houston for work. I think it will be perfect for waiting in an airport for my flights. Wish me luck on that one.

Tomorrow I will meet with a new knitting/crocheting group. I am kind of excited! I can't wait to find more crocheters/knitters in my area. When the organizer first started the group she had the meetings in the early afternoon. Many people could not make it so she is trying to find a happy medium. I do hope this works. I had joined a sewing group back in November and I was very excited to find other sewers who were willing to get together. The organizer for that group has some personal issues and we never had a meeting. I was very disappointed. I was really looking forward to meeting some other sewers in my area. But what can you do right?

I also have plans to go scrapbooking at least three times this week. Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening. I am quite happy. I have many page kits and I cannot wait to work on them. I want to have some pages completed before I leave for Houston. I have spent a great portion of the day sorting and getting things ready for my scrapbook evenings.

Well this is just a little taste of my crafty life this week. I hope to have some pictures to share later!
