I seem to have issued a challenge by e-mail to a blogging friend Joanne..... to finish something by the end of November! She took me up on it and I'm going with something similar to what she selected - Finish my hand quilting on the Hugs and Kisses Quilt! I started it last Thanksgiving so it will be a year (summer off as its too hot to hand quilt!) if I actually get it done. I spent the morning yesterday watching a few episodes of season 4 of Grey's Anatomy and hand stitching. I made some good progress on the side cream border....... lets see if this can be a finished quilt at the end of next month! My next hoop move is a corner =). One side of the first border will be done. I am debating going back and doing the peels on the outer border too... and hand stitching together the edge.
I did get something done... I crocheted the tops to a couple of kitchen towels...... and Aidan added one button and Greg/Emily added the other. Emily's was put right to use in the kitchen. Aidan's will fly up to Grammy R with some others that I need to make today. I seem to have to change them out daily... and sometimes twice a day depending on how much baking/cooking is going on. Which reminds me... better put the crochet hook, yarn and cut towels in the bag for work today. =)
Other good news..... We believe Aidan made it into the gifted program at school. We have a meeting Nov 5 with the school to discuss how it works and to help them plan a challenging program for him. Hopefully that will stop the 'I'm bored, I know what she is teaching already'.
Off to work for me..... early pickup and then a free activity at the library at 2 today - pumpkin painting.
