Tablecenter finished!

This is the tablecenter I wanted to make into a tablecloth for my glass kitchen table. The original pattern called for size 10 bedspread weight cotton and a size 7 hook. Thinking I could get a larger version with size 3 thread and a size 2 hook, I started. Upon finishing it, I could not find my stupid steel pins to block it properly after I washed it. so, here it is at 25". Now to find a clear vinyl tablecloth to display it so the cats won't tear it up.

Home sick

I am home sick, too dizzy to drive the 40+ miles to work. I crawled back into bed at 7:00, to awake again at 11:15am. Those who know me know this definitely means I am not well. I usually awake at 4a, go to the gym for 5:45 and on with my day 5 days a week. Weekends, I am up by 7am. Still feel dizzy, not like eating. Hubby made me banana nut muffins before he went to work. What a sweetie. Since I got this crud from him, I'm guessing he feels a little guilty.
My friend Lupie from Lesser known skeins has nominated me for a Kreativ Blogger award! I am more than honored, but a little embarrassed as I can't figure out how to post the lovely little button to my blog, much less link to hers and nominate others! If someone would help me out, I would soooo appreciate it. Lupie religiously follows me, and I am so happy to do the same for her.

In the mean time, here are a few photos of the heart blanket I finished this past weekend.

I have been driving with this in a box in my car to mail all week. Sad fact is, I work right next door to the post office. I am hoping to get it mailed tomorrow! I made it for a rep of mine at work who had his first baby in February...yes, a little girl. Now on to clean out more of my stash!

Ok, am feeling a little puny. Guess I'll go back to sleep til the boys get home. Have a great day to all!
