Weekend Recap

We had quite the exciting weekend. In all honesty, it actually started Thursday night with our trip to Epcot, too, but I already blogged that.

Friday was pretty uneventful - grocery shopping, house stuff, and Hans worked late. Saturday we got up early. The girls and I are going to be in one of my closest friends' weddings in June, and we went shopping for our dresses with the bride Saturday in Lakeland. I should be getting pics of the dress that was chosen for the girls soon, and will post it. For me we aren't sure - it depends on the other 2 bridesmaids, and they're coming into town on the 21st for their fitting and to see which dress looks best on them, too. That took a chunk of the day, and then we went to lunch at Zaxby's (that I blogged about on Friday - they didn't disappoint!!).
Saturday night was an outdoor viewing of Monty Python and the Holy Grail at the Tampa Performing Arts Center, with dinner at Shells beforehand. A good time was had by all, and yarn WAS involved! Brandee gave me three skeins of Caron Simply Soft for a project I'm starting, and we sat and crocehted (well, Bran was knitting on Dani's sock.....) and discussed the yarn arts during the movie. Weather was wonderful - cool without being cold, not too humid, just enough breeze to be comfortable. And let me tell you - watching the movie accompanied by the sounds of 200 people with coconut halves galloping at the appropriate spots was fantastic!
Sunday was cleaning day here at the homestead. We also had company over for dinner - friends of ours from the Ft. Lauderdale area that moved up here a couple of weeks ago. This was the first time we'd seen them in a year, and it was fun. We ordered pizza and wings, and while the boys went to pick it up, we girls crocheted. It was so much fun actually teaching someone else to crochet! I never thought I would be considered good enough that someone would want to learn because they saw my work, but this girl did. Not only that, but she's so impressed that she wants me to make things to sell in her online store. That's the second person that has asked me to place items in a store. Am I good, or are they just clueless??
Today is laundry, Heather's therapies and working on getting more dishcloths done. I'm also trying to come up with a couple of other things that I can make fairly quickly and put in the craft show on Nov. 4. I have to have all my stuff made and priced by Halloween so I can get it to Brandee. That kinda has me in a time crunch, but that's ok. I love the excitement!
I have a few books coming from the library, too, that I want to get some patterns out of. One that I already have received is Candy Tots. I want to try to get a few things made out of it. I also need to go pick up a copy of this month's Easy Crochet by Family Circle - I saw Brandee's copy Saturday night, and there are quite a few things in there I want to give a whirl.....
Well, I guess that's it for the weekend recap! Happy Hooking!
