Mundane Monday

Where or where did the friggin short, not enough time in the day weekend go??? I can't believe its Monday already... ugh.

I spent Saturday watching Scott win the race and working on some more stitch markers, including sets for Chan's blogiversary contest, my DOT Spring Swap pal, my Mom and even a couple sets for little ole me! Yes, I can finally use my own creations now. I made matching Colon Cancer Awareness sets for Mom & I using dark blue awareness ribbons & swarovski crystals. I really love the way they turned out... hope she likes her set! I also made myself a set of purple paw print markers (purple is the awareness color for animal abuse - you can check out many great "purple paw" items here). After I completed the gift sets, I went on to work up some that should wind up in my Etsy shop within the next couple of days, so keep an eye out if you're interested.

Since I neglected Clapotis all week, I devoted yesterday's crafty time to it....

I'm pretty doubtful not sure of making the March 31 deadline for the KAL, but I'm chugging along. I'm on skein #3 of yarn and have dropped 3 stitches thusfar...

While I knit away yesterday, Matt piped up and asked what I was making. When I showed him the pictures on the pattern he asked if I was going to have to block it.... I was impressed! I think he may've been asking (in a typical manly fashion) when the heck I was finally going to use that monstrous blocking board that we lugged home from Webs last year... but hey, he at least acted interested and he's got the lingo down, right? The dogs, on the other hand, were much less interested...

I can't not post this one too... 3 dogs took over the couch for much of the lazy afternoon at our house (please excuse the mess of hodge-podge blankets and pillows... if you have dogs, you understand, I'm sure). Notice the girls got the pillows on either end and the boy is stuck in the middle...
