A wonderful week

I hope everyone has had a good week! I did!

Wednesday evening the DH and I spent the evening and night watching our DD do her bar champs for TGI Fridays it was a lot of fun and money was made for charity. We knew it was going to be a late night and we were over an hour from home but close to where we work so we decided to stay at a hotel for the evening prior to going to the contest I got to do a happy dance:


This is scarf that I knitted the yarn is almost like gauze a little tricky to work with but fun.

This weekend I have been cleaning out a spare bedroom that has been filled with the DD stuff and some of my craft stuff. She is bring home her bedroom funiture that she no longer needs so we will have it for the guest room now. Needless to say my new craft room has piles of stuff in it for me to organize into the room and my living room is full of totes of the DD stuff that needs to go to the basement:(!
But the room is ready and I was able to get some stitching done also this weekend:


Not only some stitching but another happy dance! Yes, Pieces of Africa-Tunis is finished. I really enjoyed stitching it.

On Friday I went to a Client Summitt for our data processing vendor from work. It was fun to see and learn about some of the new offerings for Microsoft. There also was a wonderful raffle at the end of the day. Your got a ticket evertime you asked a question in a session. I only asked one question but that was all I needed:


Yes I won a Kindle. I do enjoy reading but I never really thought of getting one of these but it does seem like it will be fun. I did find out that I can put my patterns that I download from ravlery on it! I think that is going to be great no printing out and can highlight and mark where I end my session of knitting. It is so light and portable.
Well it has been a year since I have had major surgery hard to believe but I do feel much better. Which is a good thing.
Today is also a big day the DS turned 26! It is hard to believe that the little newborn boy is all grown up taller than mom and dad and planning his own wedding. Wish I was closer to have given him a big hug today.
Happy Halloween to all!
Until next time
May you be blessed with stitches,
Karol
