Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

Just Chillin’


It’s cold!  The windchill is -1 degree.  So what is Dreamboy doing tonight?  Well, he’s actually at home doing this.

I was digging through my linen closet the other day and found this quilt.  The one we’re using as our “hang out on the couch” quilt is shot and I never liked it.  This quilt is backed with flannel.  Dreamboy gave it his stamp of approval today.

I’ve been a pretty lame blogger recently.  I’ve had tons of comments and I haven’t responded to any of them.  I need to learn that “later” is not a good idea!  I love the comments and owe you the courtesy of responding!  I’ll try to do better in the future!

What do I have to show you?  Lots!

~I have a quilt that’s quilted and bound and on the bed.  The only problem is that the bed doesn’t seem to stay made and I need photos.

~I finished a quilt top at the retreat a few weeks ago.  Again, no photos!

~I started a new knitting project.  It involves miters.  You’ll see that soon.

~I’m almost finished with the top of the new quilt for The Genius.  I’m just working on borders.  Then it goes on the quilt machine.

~My airplane scarf is so close to being finished.  It just needs a little bit of “knit while I’m waiting for something” time.

~My tree is up and there’s Christmas stuff on my dining room table. That’s all the decorating I’m doing this year.  I know.  I’m lame!

~The only laundry I have left is the load of bathing suits from our trip.

And tomorrow…well, that’s a secret.  I can promise you that it will be blog worthy!

Oh, and Dreamboy is in the Christmas mood.  He had his rubber bands changed on his braces today.  He went with red.

I’m working really hard to get in the Christmas mood.  My attempt last night was to set the Donald Duck Jingle Bells song as the ringtone on my Crackberry.   Other than that, I may just be turning into Scrooge or The Grinch.

You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch!  Sing along everyone!!!

  1. If we were in Austin, TX we would be watching all day today for the white stuff! But in MN and PA, it’s pretty much ho-hum, when’s it going to be Spring? Yet…right here there hasn’t been any real snow yet. I’m sure your decorating is fantastic! I’m doing less this year, too.

  2. I’m there with you. I wouldn’t decorate at all, except we have a first this year. Our freshman is going to the school Christmas Dance. So of course we must take Christmas Tree pictures of her and her victim. I mean date. And then we have two parties here over the next 2 weekends. So, it’s Christmas cheer all around. NOT! I love the season, I just hate the hype.
