Package from Wednesday

I got another package from my Secret Pal on Wednesday. Well, it might have arrived on Monday or Tuesday, but I didn't get home until Wednesday.

I got a beautifully crocheted round ripple that reminds me of the sun! I LOVE IT!

There was also a package of Clover soft touch hooks and Afghans for all Seasons
AND... 10 balls of The Leader in lovely coral color.

This is what the ripple looked like when I got home from work tonight. It looks like it is glowing!

Christmas Presents

I crocheted a hooded scarf for a friend of the family, and my boyfriend knit this beautiful pink scarf for a coworker.

Christmas Crochet

I crocheted a Christmas tree skirt and a bunch of fridgies/keychains.

Pamper Me Christmas Gift

I knitted up a few facecloths in my friend's mother's favorite color for her Christmas present. I included some yummy smelling bath products, a candle, and a cute candle charm.

And the finished basket ready to go.

And one facecloth that I knit to try the pattern first, don't remember what I did with it, might have given it away already.

Felted Bags

I crocheted the ripple purses as gifts for the gals that helped me out after starting a new job at Victoria's Secret. They were all surprised! I hope they liked them!



And the knit purse I made for my aunt as a Christmas present!


I've got more squares too, just haven't gotten pictures yet! Shame on me!

Lots of finished objects!

I made a bunch of fridgies for the Yahoo Fridgie Exchange group.

Brief Update

I can't believe it's been a few months since I've posted! My last post was in September!!!

I don't feel like I've done much since then, but I've been in a slump lately when it comes to crochet, knitting, and everything. I definitely need to snap out of it. I've been kind of forcing myself to make at least one 12 inch square a night to use up some of my stash, but I haven't really been inspired to make anything special lately.

Work sucks! I can't stand the hours (or lack there of) that I get. When I applied I told the manager that I needed 40 hours a week, and she said she would give that to why am I only scheduled 26.5 hours this week? How am I supposed to pay my bills?!?! Ok, done with complaining for work for the moment.

I haven't been to school since who knows terrible is that! I feel like a loser. I was supposed to meet with my advisor two weeks ago, but my card decided it needed a $300 repair instead, so I couldn't get there. I am scheduled to meet with him on Tuesday and I'm going to try my hardest to make it there no matter what...unless we get a blizzard. And with my luck lately, we probably will!

I'm working at Victoria's Secret now, not sure if I've mentioned that or not, but I'm getting sick of that place. So, I applied at Borders, but they haven't called me yet. I'm still trying to decide if I want to call them and see what the deal is, or if I should just apply somewhere else.

Ok, that's enough, I need to find something to do, I'm too worked up to sleep!
