It's 12:30am and I'm still not ready

I know I haven't blogged in like forever. I've been so busy. Tomorrow we're leaving for my brothers were I can relax! I'm handing off my mother to him and hiding in their basement for the next couple of days. YES. I'm still not ready to go. I'm on my gazillionth load of laundry. I'm too scared to go up to the attic at this time of night to get my suitcase. So everything is stacked on a chair until tomorrow morning.

I made this cute little advent calender for the twins. The hard part was finding things small enough for the drawers.

And I woke my husband up so I could take a picture of him in his hat I made for him.

This is why I married him. He just wiped the sleep out of his eyes and put on a smile. Isn't he wonderful?

A special thanks has to go to Pat from Pat's Knitting and Quilting for the emergency help on the pattern that I accidently left on the train.

Then finally here's the mittens that I made for myself. Ohhh, they are so warm. That really helps in Chicago winters.

Well, the dryer just buzzed so I can finally go to bed. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. When I come back I'm starting to decorate for Christmas!

Great job on the hat Pat & the model isn't too bad either! Hope your Thanksgiving was the best & the Chicago weather isn't too unkind just yet. One of my best clients here in Adelaide is in the Windy City this week, so I'm looking forward to hearing all his stories when he gets back.
