The frog visited

Image
So I had a extended visit from the frog. I messed up on the "pinks" There are 7, when I started #6, I realized I messed up. Only had 2 colors correct so I frogged everything except those and redid them. Took a lot longer than I had hoped.


Now just need to cut it out and add a hanger.

Major gift done

Image
The Summer CAL afghan is complete.



Working on more gifts now. Thankfully have a week off coming up.
Splurged on Etsy a bit with Cyber Monday, here's a few.


Afghan week

The baby blanket is complete.


I had 4 days off and managed to complete up to the first row of part 7 of the Summer Cal. Spent some time fidgeting with one row and then forgot a repeat of the crossed stitches, so that ate up time redoing it. Plus other things I needed to get done.


There's a pardoned turkey outside a local supermarket.


Clyde on the stairs. I just noticed how monochrome this photo is.


DWTS Season 27: Week 9 - Finale

The final night of the season. 2 nights having to be wrapped up into one this year.

Most memorable dance is first with some other dances sprinkled in. 

Alexis. Really didn't feel like an Argentine tango. And too smiley for both the dance and that song choice. I'll give her the scores. 
Bobby. Still really bad. Too high.
Ah, sexy girl dance interlude. 
I think that dance by Sharna and Artem is the goal for my next relationship, whenever that may be.
Joe. I appreciate the shirtless men, but Val marking the cha cha is far better than anyone else in that floor.
Evanna. Good body contact. Some kicks seemed to be a bit shortened. I'll give her the scores.
And now for the sexy men interlude. 
Milo. Still a bit gumby-ish. Kinda works for this dance. I'll give him the scores.
Good dancing, even with a few funky camera choices. 
Juan Pablo. Singing and dancing, but not at the same time. Nice tone to his voice.
Tinashe. Thank you for the sexy men again. Can I have that dress?
Freestyle round.…

The start of Christmas presents

Image
So I just realized I have a little over a month until Christmas. And I have a lot of presents and gifts to make, mostly crochet. So while the squares are complete for the afghan, sewing them together will have to wait. Also wasn't looking forward to it. Maybe I'll block them while working on other things.


Such as this baby blanket that was requested. I'm over halfway through the yarn I bought so maybe another day or two?


Also bought 6 kits during Lion Brand's sale. I got a box of yarn in return. Still have to make sure everything is in there, but I've been putting it off.


And Clyde doesn't like the flash on the phone.


DWTS Season 27: Week 8

Semi finals.

Dedication dance round. 
Bobby. Awkward movement, not much salsa. His suit is the same color as her hair... Too high.
Alexis. Looked and felt like a viennese waltz. It was also danced in one spot instead of traveling. Too high.
Joe. Points for the lifts but he barely did anything. Too high.
Juan Pablo. Finally a dance with content that was done well. I agree with the scores. 
Evanna. I liked it. A little repetitive in the movements at the beginning. I agree with the scores. 
Milo. I liked it. Danced well. I agree with the scores.
Judges choice round. 
Bobby. All over the place and while the kicks and flicks were decent at the beginning, they got wilder as the dance went on. Too high.
Alexis. She seemed to run out of steam at the end. A little high.
Joe. Well, it was better than week 1... Too high.
Juan Pablo. Could've used more hips. Foot placement was a little wiggly at times. I'll give him the scores.
Evanna. Still fast for a foxtrot. Left elbow in frame looks a b…
