Snow Day part 2

 Well I am not full of nearly as many exciting pictures tonight.  In fact, none I can share at all except for some dogs in snow pics still on the camera.  You see, I spent a good portion of the day working on something I plan to RAoK somebody with.  And it came out pretty, if I do say so myself.  (and I do)  I can't wait to get to share pictures with you, but I will have to wait until the person receives it.

I have a number of things I would like to get out in the mail tomorrow.  If the mail is running.  The last two days have had almost the entire city shut down, but it would be good if we got mail tomorrow.

Anyway, back to it, I will also be sharing the pattern from the super-cool RAoK project.  :-)  It's a new one I dreamed up last night.  Not hard, but very effective in looking elegant.

I was going to start on another chunky bow cowl with a few little variations, but I was guilted in to cleaning something.  Now mind you, I hadn't been a complete sloth.  I did 2 loads of laundry and 2 loads of dishes and baked 2 dozen muffins to send with Ben today.  So I decided to work on my craft room and guess what?!?  You can actually see the surface of my desk now.  This is quite an amazing feat and Ben sounded very proud of me when I told him (he knows i suck at keeping my craft room and the desk we share clean).  this desk had been buried forever.  So while it may not be perfect, its useable and makes me happy.   I even got out some stationary and was able to write on top the desk  Wow.

I think it will be awesome if we ever get our dual office set up going, I'm really excited about how the extra storage space could help me get organized.  If I can just set up a system, a really good system, I can stick to it.  Well, I can stick to it better than I can stay organized with a lack of system.

I did finally get to start another Chunky Bow Cowl.  This one is a dark grey blue, kind of denimy color.  I think it will be great.  The stitch pattern is different and I may change the orientation of the bow on this one.

If there is something you wish to see more of in my shop or something you want to know I can make, just leave a comment or message me.  :-)

Ok, folks, I am rewarding myself for this long day with a nice hot bath and a good book.  Sounds like a great end to a second snow day to me.

Stay warm!
