Weekend Update

I might as well date myself right here and admit I remember watching Chevy Chase doing Weekend Update. Anyway, I've had that phrase stuck in my mind, so I decided to use it.

Here is the progress on my milk carton project. I guess it's obvious by now that one side of the project is going to be a "haunted house." I still have a few things to add to this before I attach it to the cartons, but it shouldn't take too long to finish. I already have some ideas for the next side.

I got these goodies in the mail today, and now all I need to add is a piece of fabric and some time, and I'll be trying my hand at silk ribbon embroidery. I can't wait to try it! But I still have a few things I really must finish up before I can indulge myself in something new.

The Top Secret Gift for Someone Very Special is still awaiting its finishing touches. I have some ATCs to make for a swap at Club Posh. I want to finish Liat's bookbag as quickly as possible. Everything else either has no firm deadline, or doesn't need to be finished for a good while. So, I'll get those things done and then we'll see.

We had a lovely time with our friends yesterday. Also this weekend, I worked on the sock for my sister, and am nearly done with the second mitten of my first pair for the Native American Support group's challenge. Some gals have already made more than a dozen pair, so I'm definitely not going to win any prizes for sheer quantity! But it's a lot of fun, anyway. Also today, I finished putting bias tape around my first crazy quilt patch, and have sewn it onto the denim. Now I need to finish sewing up the bag. Once I sit down to it, that shouldn't take too long. With all this jumping around from project to project, I am likely going to end up finishing a bunch of things all at more or less the same time. That should be a real rush, because it feels like forever since I finished anything!

Stay tuned.

Love the haunted house -- Halloween is one of my favorite celebrations! Can't wait to see the ribbon embroidery! Looks like you have some beautiful new yarn to play with. DOn't you wish there were more hours in the day?

The haunted house is awesome. Can't wait to see your ribbon embroidery project. Daughter has supplies to do ribbon embroidery but hasn't started yet. You are so inspiring!
