A very productive weekend!

Oh my, when I put my mind to it...... I can do wonders and miracles in a few days. It did help that I was on my own for the weekend as the Hubs was away for a few days. Sorry honey but for some reason I just accomplish a lot more when my days are my own. But don't worry I won't trade you in! So on Friday at lunch, my friend Debbie, who is an awesome knitter and crocheter had to walk me through a pattern that I could not figure out for the life of me. Thanks Deb! It wasn't totally my fault, even if I am almost clueless when it comes to reading patterns, but she managed to read between the lines and get a handle on what they were implying. So we made a few at lunch and the minute I got home from work..... I made another one before I forgot how. I have made five and I am sure I have it. I finished my ruffle scarf made from the Noro Yarn and I have to admit it looks pretty darn fabulous! A lot of work but I think it is worth it.

 The photo doesn't do the colors justice but believe me, it is very pretty. Then a few of the colorful posies that will adorn some of the hats. I think I'll put a brooch pin on the back of them so they can come off and on if need be.

So that and another crocheted Kobo carrying case (with I-cord strap) my days were creative. The mornings were spent running with Annie on Saturday, and Sunday, with Susan and Annie and another 10km. I know two days in a row but it's all good. It felt quite cool this morning, I think yesterday was warmer or maybe there wasn't any wind. I don't know but it just was nicer Saturday. So my house is clean and the little chores are all caught up and well I guess its back to work Monday........ahhhhhhhh.......I love the weekends......I hope yours was as successful and productive. Have a good evening....
