Better late than never!

Hi Friends! I am here. I can hardly believe it's been three weeks since my last post! Thanks to antibiotics, everyone in this house has recovered. We had a pair of sinus infections and a pneumonia. Kidster #2 managed to squeak by with "just a cold", but boy did it take him forever to kick it. Then Papa had a little stomach problem, and now Grandma is sick. Yikes! When will it end? My crazy schedule has finally caught up to me. But I have a bunch of projects that I have finished or am working on, so I promise no more posting vacations!
I did this turkey as part of a Spud and Chloe KAL. Susan B. Anderson released the pattern in pieces, as she knit them. In the beginning I was keeping up with it. Well, the head and the body anyway. I got a little behind after that, for reasons that will be discussed later. The whole pattern can be found on her blog or here on Ravelry.
Yes, he might be a day late, but he is finished. He missed the feast and festivities but is still very much loved by little hands.

Friday Fill-Ins

Due to a lack of sleep and antibiotics, I am doing an easy post. Have a great weekend everyone!

1. Plans and schedules are an absolute must with the kidsters.
2. I'm happy when things go according to the plan.
3. The last thing I drank was orange juice.
4. One of the most valuable things in my life is Hubster. He doesn't exactly know what to do when I'm sick but he knows when things get too crazy it's time to take over.
5. I like bacon on my pizza.
6. Dear November, if you want to be windy, that's fine. If you want to be cold, that's fine too. But keep the germs away from here will ya?
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to sleep, tomorrow my plans include sleep, and Sunday, I want to sleep!

Get your Friday Fill-Ins here.

We Won!

Thanks friends! Thanks to your support, the Braided Cable Handle Tote is the November bag KAL in the Bag-A-Month Club on Ravelry! I'm going to be joining the fun and knitting another one. Another one you ask? Yup. This time in a "way huger than that" size, requested by one almost 15 year old niece. Details will surely follow. Hope you join us!
