Friday night...

So last night was the Friday Night Sew-In with Heidi... I fed my family a quick frozen pizza and started to make my way downstairs when I realized... "OMG Christmas is next week..... this is my last weekend to finish dad's afghan!"  So I worked on dad's knitted afghan and got it done and then finished up a bunch of really cute snowmen for my nieces and nephews. I got the idea from  Beehive Cottage.  They turned out so adorable!  I made a ton of them... I never got to my poor sewing machine.  I'm off now to wrap presents like a crazy person.  Much to do, little time...
