Happy Friday, everyone! Another week done and despite my desire to slow down and enjoy these last weeks of 2018 – the calendar seems to have a different agenda!

So, I guess that means I need to actually figure out what Steve and I are going to have for Thanksgiving, so I can get to the store this weekend to avoid the utter insanity that next week will be!

I did one huge happy dance yesterday when I finished plying up my singles. This yarn is EXACTLY what I was hoping for and it seems my planning worked out very well! It needs a nice hot bath and some finishing but, skein one is done!

Thinking about – Christmas!! Yes, I have some shopping to do but what I am really thinking about is how much I want to decorate the house. Crazy ideas are swirling through my head… do we want to put up the tree this year? Lights outside? If we don’t put up the tree, what will that look like…and maybe more importantly, what will that feel like?

Grateful for – Steve’s saved vacation days…he has a 6-day weekend next week, starting on Wednesday and ending on Monday. And, yes, there will even be gratitude when he goes back to work on Tuesday!

Inspired by –
All the things in Making No. 6 / Black & White. This might be my favorite issue thus far and I am especially loving all the sewing patterns! I am going to put this little stack of fat quarters to use and soon! I have some Christmas-y plans for these cute little zippered bags! And, there is the most beautiful apron pattern with a patchwork pocket!

Fun, fun, fun – Last weekend felt a bit “non-stop” and so this weekend I am really looking forward to a more relaxed pace… time at home… and today I am going to spend some time creating a couple of Christmas play lists on Spotify to celebrate the season! And, that leads me to this burning question…. what is your “must have” song for your Christmas play list?

Happy weekend everyone! See you all back here on Monday!
