Finished and onto something new

Well, it's Monday..... So far off to a good start. I was able to complete the log cabin half round on Saturday. She wanted this piece to go over her door in the room where she has all log cabin items. Very sweet room. The finished size measures approximately 11" x 24 1/2". It's all ready to take over to Pam this evening. It worked out well since I will be going out that way this evening to do meet up with the girls in East Berlin. She doesn't live too far from where I'll be. I haven't been able to make it out that way in a long time. Will be nice to see everyone.

Now that I am done with this project, I started a new one. I am doing a punch needle piece for my friend Donna for Saturday. She is having her annual Spring party and I wanted to take a little something for her. Will take a picture of it when I'm done. I am going to take that with me this evening instead of hooking so I can get some done. When this is completed, I need to draw up a design for the basket bingo that my daughters band is having at her school. Last year they asked me to donate a piece, and she said everyone liked it. They asked me to do another one this year. I don't mind at all. I've got to settle on a design yet.

This week will be kind of busy. My husband has off this week. We all know how the economy is these days. Everyone is slow. Thankfully he had a week of vacation to take, so he won't lose the pay. Big praise right there! He is determined to get the Jeep running to be able to trade it in on a newer vehicle. We will be going on Wednesday to start "looking". The plans were to do that today, but the part he needed didn't come in. We got a call early this morning that it is in and that's how he will be spending his day. Snapped a picture of him yesterday while making a list of things he needed to get at the auto store. Sticking his tongue out was the polite way of saying he's had enough of this vehicle LOL. I think I'll be hooking tomorrow at church with Genny. Need to call her later to confirm. I'm also going out with some friends for dinner on Friday evening. Looking forward to that too! So yep, it will be a busy week for me. Should be fun! The shingles really threw me for a loop and I'm finally getting over the fatigue that went along with it.
Off to get my day started. Wishing everyone a terrific week!!
