The big day has come and gone. Whew. We actually had a great Christmas. For the first time since we were married, Will and I didn't go anywhere or have any company for the holiday. It was just us and Autumn. We have had really warm weather and no snow either. Very unusual. We had a great weekend though. Saturday we went for a drive and out to lunch, then we took Autumn to the park. Not something we can usually do in December. Yesterday we all slept in then opened presents. I put a roast in the crock pot and made some potatoes and we were set. I had made a few desserts for our family party (it was cancelled due to illness) so we even had yummy treats. A no fuss Christmas.
I have a bunch of dk cotton yarn for the Beautiful Blogger Blanket squares I have been making and it is perfect for making a case for the Nook. Here are the squares I am going to send to Stocki.
I also made a sweater for a friend of mine at work last week. It was her birthday.
Not a good picture, but the cardigan turned out really nice. It was made with Bamboospun yarn from Hobby Lobby. Very soft.
Unfortunately, I took these pictures when it is dark and you can't see the details. It has covered buttons, I have never made those before and honestly, I think I will just buy buttons that match from now on. Lol. that was it though for my WIP's. All I have left are my two blankets that I am working on for my One-a-Day project and almost everyone in that group has taken a break for the holidays. I am going to work on them this week and will blog about them tomorrow for Tuesday's Tallies. I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and I will talk to everyone tomorrow. Happy crafting.
