thanksgiving vacation is over!

we are back safe at home now after much ado. airline lost all 4 of our bags, ripped 3 when they delivered them and got the last one today. flight was worse than aweful, didnt land until 2 am! On a happier subject we had a great thanksgiving and did pretty well in the black friday dept. got all the gifts for the neices for christmas, and one for a friend. i am thinking we will host a little friends get together for christmas this year, need to talk to some people and see what plans might work for the most amount of people. my family did all our little gift exchanges while we were visiting, got and gave some great stuff.

picked up all these goodies for about 45$ at the after thanksgiving sale, i was pretty happy about that. it is 7 skeins black wool-ease, 6 skeins denim cool crochet, and 3 skeins taupe cotton-ease.

mom threw me a bridal shower while i was there, small and nice. it turned out very lovely and i had a couple friends there so it was all good. i think i will be the one planning a bridal shower here since my maid of honor was there at the first one in california. mom also helped me rehab my poor coat, i walked into a freshly painted green pole right after buying this gem. she makes felted things so she gave me some cut-out felted flowers to sew on. i think it turned out ok, i also put 1 one the leftover flowers onto the lapel of the coat to kind of tie it in and make it look less out of place

thanksgiving is coming!

i will be heading home for thanksgiving and i have actually finished all planned projects. can't believe i actually did this with time to spare. i am currently working on a no-brainer project of leg warmers for some 3 yr old twins. i bought some yarn to make this sweater i saw on svetlana's blog, a copy of a VS sweater and i love it. it is a lovely "rice" colored yarn that is a bamboo/silk/cotton blend and it is fingering weight and it is totally yummy.
