 This is what happens when you ask your daughter to pick up all of the acorns off the lawn in the spring... And she stands in one place for 30 minutes... then looks around the ground for another 10... then brings the wheelbarrel over and throws them one at a time across the lawn... then you yell at her and tell her she will stay out there until they are ALL...PICKED...UP! ...and then give up because it's late and you just want to start the movie already... Ya, I filled an entire wheelbarrel with all of our little baby oak trees. (anyone want a tree?). Then Kevin mowed the lawn.

That was the extent of our weekend... That and watching many movies while staring at the big TV in a vegitative state.

I sewed together this really super cool and beautiful pin cushion. My first attempt at the blanket stitch. Cute, tight?

I also knit to double the size on my footstool on size 19 needles (I now hate size 19 needles, just in case you were wondering.), and did 3 more rounds on my pretty layering vest.

This is the pattern I am using for my purple vest. It will be many, many, many rows of knit, knit, knit. But it will be pretty!

I hope you enjoyed your long weekend. We did.

I adore your pincushion and the blanket stitch looks perfect. Great job! I pretty much sat on my duff today messing with projects myself.
Weekend is now over - time to gear back up for work. :) Thanks for posting all your talent once again!

Hey Karen - I saw your "sitting on your duff projects"... and I love them! send me the pattern for that first earwarmer(please?)? I love that flower, and have no idea how to do that sort of thing. I bet you could do really well selling that pattern - quick and simple, fast to knit up, and not a lot of yarn.
