I finished the Twilight series.

Back to my regular life (cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc)
all the things I've let slip by :)

Sister says..........

I am a book geek :), so be it.
When I find a series I like, I totally lose myself in it.
No cooking, no cleaning, no nothing!!

Guess what!!

The Grandma came to preschool yesterday to show me the progress on the vacuum (as sister says), Tilted Duster for the rest of us.

She has about 4" to go on the body, the other sleeve and the neck.
I'm thinking by next week it'll be ready to wear.

I am so completely wrapped up in the Twilight Saga!!!

I read Twilight a few months ago. Due to a mix up on the book order form, I received Twilight AGAIN last month, not New Moon (ugghh). I was able to borrow New Moon from my friend. I read/finished that on Sunday. It was so good, I re-read the last half Monday morning, then started Eclipse Monday evening, I finished that one last night. I am on my way to purchase New Dawn later this morning.

the book was gone!
It was there last week (Sam's), I held it in my hands :(
I will wait for my friend to buy it for me (Costco)
While I wait, I'll re-read the others :).
They did have New Moon, so I bought it.
My collection will be complete. soon. like maybe tomorrow. I hope.

I am torn about reading the last book, it will be exciting to see how it turns out, but I am sad to see the story end. I am not sure if there is a book 5.

Tilted Duster news:
The grandma received the yarn on Friday and I was told yesterday that the front and 1 sleeve was finished!!!

Tilted Duster

Guess what?

The Grandmother of one of my preschool girls (2 l'd Allison) is going to make the Tilted Duster for me!!!

YEA, that means I might actually get to wear it this season! I was afraid if I made it, I wouldn't be wearing it for many, many seasons.

She is so nice to do this for me :), but as she said, you are her favorite teacher (aide that is).

I've just about completed one of the "gifts". I used Lion Brand cotton instead of the Euro Linen called for in the pattern. Much better.

1 sock finished!

Finally, after sitting and gathering dust on the couch, for over a month, I finished 1 of the Ampersand socks. I don't think I'm going to cast on the mate, I'm going to start the "gift", and maybe the Tilted Duster, I haven't decided yet.
