Feeling Lucky?

I hope everyone in the States had a good turkey day yesterday and got to spend some time with people you love. I had a good day of getting caught up on work and home stuff, which included a super overdue fabric organization. I have been ordering fabric in larger amounts, but it never comes on bolts. So I went to my Joanns and asked for some of their empty ones.

Anything over 2 yards is now on bolts, and anything between 0.5-2 yards is on comic book cards as mini bolts. The smaller stuff I separated out into project sizes (box bags, crayon rolls, etc) and the scraps I organized by colour into little bins.

I had a chance to sit and relax outside a bit too, which was much needed. We had absolutely perfect weather yesterday.

TJ and I had a little bit of turkey and went to see the Muppets movie last night (super cute if you were a fan of the show years ago). I am kinda hoping they bring back a weekly show.

I wanted to let you know that you have a chance to win one item from my shop over on Sew Mama Sew! this week as part of their Handmade Holidays series. I have eagerly awaited this series for a couple of years, as I get a lot of my gift giving ideas from their lists. It is a whole month of tutorials divided up into categories, and if you comment on the post you have a chance to win all kinds of prizes. Go check it out!

Today we are going to have a leisurely bacon and egg breakfast, and then head out to a hockey game (which is more of an event in VA then you would imagine šŸ™‚ ). Tomorrow we are going to be helping some very good friends move, so everyone keep your fingers crossed that the rain they are calling for doesn’t happen. And also keep your fingers crossed that the guys will give us girls a break, because I just taught my girlfriend how to knit and I am sure we could use some more lesson time šŸ˜‰

Don’t forget that my Black Friday/Small Biz Saturday/Cyber Monday sale continues all weekend. Enter freeshipping at checkout to get, you guessed it, free shipping. (On a side note, I think Sunday must feel left out. Let’s have a contest to come up with the most interesting thing for Sunday. Like Polka-dot Socks Sunday, or Underwear on our Heads Sunday. Ideas? Discuss.)

Have a good weekend everyone!

    Thanks sooo much for the moving help, and of course helping me get back on track with my knitting! One day I’ll figure this whole knitting thing out šŸ˜‰
