IT'S FINALLY DONE!!!! Mario Blanket

What a long 6 months. I am so glad this blanket is done. And so is my fiance. I gave it to him on Christmas. He thought I wouldn't finish it on time . But I did! :) here are a few pictures of its journey.

My Pinterest Nightmare..3 ways to avoid being me!

Pinterest has grown very fast. I love it and hate it at the same time. Its an easy place to access and find things you love . I have about 96 boards, 6 secret boards, 5,207 pins, 4,742 likes . That's where my nightmare begins.... all those likes. Just sitting there without a board to call their own. 4,738 likes ( as of this post) . How did it get so out of control?

I love the Hobbit movies. I am so looking forward to this, the 3rd and last movie. So that's one item on the agenda. I have a few hats I need to send out and and a few more hats I need to buy more yarn for... so a trip to Walmart is a must ( a place I can not walk to .. bummer) . While there I need to get Jon's mother her Christmas present, a hamper with wheels.....shes needs a new one, badly. And if I have some free time after finishing hats for my customers I need to sew more squares together for Jon's Mario Blanket. This blanket has taken 6 months . I will be glad when its done.. then I can make either my Totoro blanket ( my neighbor Totoro) or a Boston Bruins blanket for myself.... o…
