Wiring is Done

The wiring is all done in the quilt room and we are waiting for the inspector to come and say GOOD JOB so we can move on to the insulation. Dh has been putting in the windows so when they are all done I'll post pictures of them. This is the window which faces the house. It really lets in a lot of light and I will have a sewing machine set up so I can sew and look out the window. This week I also managed to get a baby quilt put together and quilted so tonight I will do the binding and it will be ready to mail on Monday to the customer. It came out really nice and I have enough to do another one. I have to admit I wasn't sure when she said they were doing the baby's room in pink, brown and white, but I'm really liking this combination. Even dh said it came out really nice. The pattern is Sunny Lanes. Well, I'm off to knit some more on my knit along sweater.

Knit A-Long

I'm doing the Lion Brand Knit A-Long which is the Inishturk Sweater. It has a boat load of different cables which will make me a cable expert by the time it is done. I'm really enjoying this knit so far.

For Valentine's Day we had a Turkey Dinner. My DH (the chocolate cake guy) says that you are supposed to have turkey on all the holidays. Needless to say that doesn't happen, but every once in a while I make his day and fix him a turkey dinner. So tonight when he was fixing a plate of left overs he's saying "Every Day is Thanksgiving". It doesn't take much to make him happy. He's a keeper. Well, have to go watch the pairs figure skating. Later.
