Major gift done

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

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…

c2c squares

So I've been making squares this week.

So far I have 12 solid white, 4 solid red, 16 red/white and 4 green/white. 12 more green/white and 16 red/white to go. Might have to block them before sewing them all together and putting a border around the whole thing. It'll be pretty, but I also wish I could've done a join as you go method. Anyway, back to the squares.

DWTS Season 27: Week 7

Country night

John. Not sure how that was jazz, but it was fun. Too high.
Evanna. No hips. Too much spinning and posing. Her hands were expressive but I'm not really sure what the judges saw. Not 10s.
Ah, pretty pro interlude.
Juan Pablo. Country Charleston? Odd. He had some trouble with the side flicks. Jeans too tight? Little high.
Joe. That just looked awkward. Way too high.
Milo. Not bad. A bit fast for a foxtrot. Suit fabric is a bit odd. Little high but i'll give him the scores.
Ooh, hot shirtless men. 
Demarcus. Pretty good. Very pretty. I'll give him the scores. 
Alexis. No hips. Some bounce, but it looked odd. Too high. 
Bobby. Posture wasn't good. Seemed rushed and off time the entire dance. Too high. 
Team dances. 
Team hay now. Cute, fun. I'll give them the scores.
Team Joe down. Cute. Could tell how was the weak link of the group. I guess I'll give them the scores.
Going home are Demarcus and John. 
Still waiting for Joe and Bobby to leave.
