Already?

It's almost mid-month already?  Time really flies sometimes!  We are all well (for the most part--the fifth grader was sent home last Thursday with a fever, but she bounced back).  I had a congregational lunch and meeting to prepare for last Sunday, and it went well--and I'm glad to have it behind me! 

And I've been working on some Valentine crafting...


The Libby sweater is almost done!  I still have to sew in the sleeves and find buttons.  Why is it that finding buttons is so difficult?  And I finally started a tomten sweater/jacket for Bobby.  I hope he likes it.  It's all garter stitch, so I'll probably be ready for some cables again once it's finished.

Today I'm going to make some shortbread cookies and pick out some buttons.  Sounds like a good day, don't you think?  Maybe tomorrow I'll pick up some wine to celebrate a full week of school and no snow!

Hello Meg! How adorable you look in your apron and chef's hat! Loving the Valentine goodness you have going. Enjoy your day of buttons and cookies.

Moms of several children (or women who are very active) have no time to...think about the time!
You have been doing A LOT and I bet that you did not post about all the rest. You seem cheerful enough, though! Love your knitting.

Cute picture of you! You are so quick with all that knitting. Impressive. No snow this week in NYS either, but so very cold. I'm hoping for a warm-up this weekend so some of the white stuff melts. It's hard to see when backing out of driveways or at intersections.

Meg, you look so cute in the apron and hat - and are those hearts on your necklace?! Love all your Valentine's spirit! I'm knitting a version of Libby for abby too - but i had to change it up a bit to get it to a size 6/8. Hope you enjoyed your cookies with the wine and had a wonderful weekend.

And thanks for your comment about re purposed gifts. it's exactly why i don't lead anyone to think that they're actually getting anything - because they may not be!
