Happy Thursday

  I wanted to add the things I left out of yesterday's post. I spent most of last week working on a Christmas present that I can't show anyone yet. I love it though. Then Sunday was my husband's birthday. He had to work so we went out last Friday and took Will to dinner and did a little birthday shopping. He wanted a speaker for his ipod. Better if he chooses those things on his own. Then we went to our (used to be) favorite restaurant. We had the worst service. I was already so tired that it made me mad. Autumn and I go out to eat breakfast on the weekend. Will doesn't like to go out to eat very much. There is one restaurant he likes and the last few times we have been there the service has been terrible. Oh well. The food was good, even if we had to wait an hour for it. Lol. We had fun though. I made him a cake on Sunday, Autumn and I wanted to eat it before he got home, but we were good.
This cake was so good! Dark chocolate with butter cream and toffee chips. There is no more cake left. I love making cakes and it is a good thing. Tonight I have to make 50 cupcakes and tomorrow night two birthday cakes. My little baby is turning 6 tomorrow. She is taking cupcakes to school and we are also taking cupcakes the nursery school where I work. Autumn rides the bus there on days I am working and then I get off and we come home. I just started to work there in September, but Autumn went to pre-school there for two years.
  I have been trying to figure out the pattern for this Christmas tree garland. The pattern is not available and I can't find the magazine anywhere.
It looks ok. I think the top needs to be a little more pointed, not so flat. Then my oldest friend from grade school asked me if I could make her twin nephews each a hooded sweater for Christmas. Her twin daughters got the first two I made, and Autumn wears one all the time too. The sweaters take about 20 hours each to work up. I think they will be really cute.
The first one is three shades of green and a brown border. The second one will be three shades of blue with the brown border.
The boys are cute, blonde blue eyed two year olds. This week is full, but I am hoping to get them done next week so I can get them sent off to California. I will talk to everyone soon. Have to get ready for work now.

Work In Progress Wednesday

Hello everyone,
  I missed Tuesday's Tallies and I haven't posted in over a week. I can't say I have been any busier than normal I just haven't gotten around to posting. I worked on a Christmas present last week that took up most of my time. I will show that after the gift has been given. I did work on my One-a-Day projects too.

I have a whole basket of squares ready to sew together. It is hard to work on though, it is so big and takes up so much space. I usually work on it when everyone is asleep.
  I worked on the Happy Ripple too. I only got 6 stripes done this week. I am close to half way done with this one.
GingerbreadGirl hosts the One-a-Day group and you can see everyone's progress over on her blog.
I was going to write a long post today and catch up, however, I have to go get birthday presents for my daughter and since my husband is off today, this is my only chance to go out alone. I will talk to everyone tomorrow and post the rest of what I have been up to.
