    Welcome to the short month of February!!!!

    DD, sounds like you got a deal on the fabric that was marked down and then also 40% off!!! :)

    I purchased 2 skeins of yarn yesterday for mom to make Teigan a couple more scarfs. She knitted her a black one for her bday and Teigan loves it. Kinda short to wrap the way Teigan does it so Teigan picked out a puple and a light mint green to match her coats.

    Alot of activity again last week. Nice to see!

    What do you all have planned for this week?

    Happy Crafting!

    I need to get Valentines in the mail by Thursday, but I want to make some little gifts for the grandchildren. I'm hoping to machine embroidery "Big Sister" and "Little Brother" on shirt and onesie for Julia and Valentin; maybe machine embroidery something on a shirt for Sonja; and make up a tissue box stuffed with money for Iris. She's trying to save money for her 7th or 8th grade? school field trip to Germany. She's got several years to save for it.

    I need to do some craftermath control to find storage for my new stash of fabric! Yes, I did get a terrific deal!

    I didn't get to the apron last week so I will bring that forward to this week. Actually, I will try to tackle that today and get it off my list.

    I would like to bring out my knitting needles and start knitting a blanket or lap throw. DH wants me to needle knit a blanket. Not sure I have the right yarn but i'll see. No use in making scarves for where we live. I could make some dishcloths, that would be a nice, quick project to get me back into the groove.

    My aim this week is to at least finish knitting the gusset for the santa tote. Will need a few finishing touches like moustache and nose. Not going to rush but would like it finished by end of February. then would like to work on a few small things and get them out of the way. I have a few crafts that I have been putting off for a while and would like to get them done while I am in the mood or else they might be UFOs for another year.:rolleyes:

    Finally figured out my layout for my quilt and started finishing my blocks. Got 1/2 done and quit, my back said I was finished for the day.
    I worked a little last night crocheting my scarf. I plan to work on it while the game is on tonight. It doesn't look to bad for a first attempt.

    Got some more tulle when shopping Sat. and Sun. so will crochet some more scrubby pads. Have been doing them the last few years and think people would get tired of them but this year had comments on how much they like them. I need to learn to do the double sided ones.

    Picked up a couple things I needed at the fabric store, along with some yarn to make hats for the mitten tree.
    Have gotten a good half of a dishcloth done.

    Nope haven't started the mittens, trying to decide if I do the cuff knitted or crochet.

    Katrina ~ I had two appointments yesterday, but no waiting time, so no knitting although I had it with me.

    I did get the last inner borders sewn onto the lake loft quilts.

    Finished quilt top yesterday except for some type of border. Husband doesn't think it needs one. I looked on line last night but didnt see any thing I liked. I have limited amount of fabric left so Im limited on what I can do. Will page through my few books and magazines this afternoon to see what's there.

    All Valentine cards and gifts are in the mail! The next deadline is Julia's birthday on the 21st. I already have her art smock done, but DD asked if I could make some stuffed letters of her name for her to hang on her bedroom wall. She wants to get her a big girl bed and update the room; however, she will be sharing it with her baby brother when he starts sleeping in the crib. So I'm waiting for her selection of fabrics for that project.

    In the meantime, I have the lake loft quilts to work on and some cross stitch SALs that I would like to keep up with … plus knitting ...
