Happy All Saints Day! I am back to my normal self as of about 5 minutes ago. The last of our out of town guests has been taken to the airport. The wedding is over and it was beautiful. My shawl got finished by the skin of my teeth. So I am ready to start back into my Christmas crafting.
Let's take a look at my past week.........................Monday & Tuesday were spent getting linens washed and placed on beds. Dusting and mopping happened as did making sure there were items in the guest bath that might be needed by our guests. We also had to clean up the remainder of our remodeling items and get everything put away. Not much knitting got done those days.
Wednesday morning.............................early morning......................our first guest arrived. Our son from Texas came in. So, Wednesday was spent catching up with him and what was going on in his life. I did get some knitting done but not as much as I needed.
Thursday, our daughter and her mother (yes, I am a Step Parent) needed to come over and use my sewing machine to make adjustments to daughters wedding dress. Her mother had made the dress just from the measurements she was given over the phone. Daughter lives in Arizona and mom lives in Washington State. So they were here for 3 hours doing the adjustments. I tried to knit, but as I was doing lace work, it seemed every time I was getting my groove on, they needed me to help pin or hold parts of the dress. After they left it was petal to the metal to complete the shawl. I did not make it as large as the pattern (and I am glad I didn't) I completed it, soaked it and blocked it and got done about 2 on Friday morning.
This is how it turned out.
So today I will get back to my socks for a while. Our Daughter is bringing her cute little dog over for us to babysit while they take a mini honeymoon at a resort here in the area. That means I will need to kind of watch my male dog with her as he is extremely jealous of any dog that might take some of my time away from him.
So the wedding...............................it was lovely and I have a couple of shots to give you the flavor of it. First off, let me tell you that my new Son In Law is a crafter. He loves to sew.
So after the wedding, we all rushed home and got changed and went trick or treating with our grand daughter. We had a blast but boy was I one tuckered out MiMi by the time I got home at 10:30 last night. This morning was even worse as the first trip to the airport was mine to do and it was at 4 this morning! Then I got home and got hubby up and we went to 7AM Mass. He is now taking the last guest to the airport and we are done for the day.
So I will close for now and got and pick up my needles and work on the Snoqualmie Falls Sock that is darn near finished. It should be done by the end of the week and the second man's sock will be cast on. I am doing pretty good with the Christmas list so I am not in panic mode.......................yet. Still have 2 afghans to complete but it is still darn near 90 degrees here and I am melting below them. Maybe in a couple of weeks I can get back to them.
Until next week......................Happy Crafting!
